Graham Makes Torquay Switch

Graham Makes Torquay Switch

Out-of-favour Wednesday striker David Graham has opted for a move away from Hillsborough and returned to former club Torquay United on loan until the end of the season.

The Scottish striker has failed to impress boss Brian Laws since returning to Hillsborough from his loan spell at Bradford City and will try to help his former club avoid relegation from the Football League.

The loan move could spell the end of the former Wigan man's short stay at Hillsborough - which saw him loaned out to Huddersfield Town and Bradford - after he failed to make an impresison on the Owls faithful since making his move from Wigan in August 2005.

Gulls Chairman Mike Bateson told the official Torquay website: 'I made a promise to all the fans that I would do all I can to help us avoid relegation. Therefore I have made the extra funds available and made a call to our old friend David Graham. He has experienced relegation battles before here at Torquay United and is up for the challenge again this time around. Welcome back David!'

The Rangers youth product made his name down on the south club where he notched an impressive 45 goals in 98 starts for United before being snapped up by Wigan where he made just 13 starts during their promotion season to the Premiership.

Paul Sturrock brought him to Hillsborough at the start of the Owls' Championship campaign but he failed to make an impresison with the Wednesday faithful and was shipped out to Huddersfield on-loan where he impressed during their promotion push last term.

But he endured a tough time on loan at Bradford City for the first half of this season and has failed to break in to the Owls first team since his return.

Good luck to him but he's someone we need out to freshen things up. Probably hit a few goals at that level!

If he does fantastically well I wouldn't be surprised if he got recalled but I can't see it.
