Barkley's thanks to Owls fans

6 November 2012

 

Ross Barkley has sent a message of thanks to Owls fans following his October Player of the Month award.

 

The young midfielder posted a landslide win to scoop the award as he continues to go from strength to strength following his loan move to Hillsborough from Premiership side Everton.

 

Barkley initially joined the Owls in mid-September and recently saw the deal extended into a second month, during which he has scored three goals in his last two appearances.

 

He told swfc.co.uk: “This is great and I would like to thank all the supporters who voted for me.

 

“The Sheffield Wednesday fans have been great to me since I came here and that has been a real help.

 

“Any award is great but coming from the fans makes it all the more special.”

 

The talented teenager credits manager Dave Jones and the Owls’ coaching staff for his steady development in S6 and also reveals his long time admiration of the Wednesday boss.

 

Barkley added: “I have followed the career of Dave Jones for a long time, to when he was at Cardiff.

 

“He’s a Scouser from the same area as me so I have always taken an interest in his career. I was made up when I found out he was interested in bringing me to Wednesday.

 

“I have really enjoyed my time here so far. I feel as if I have made a lot of progress and that is the most important thing.

 

“The manager and the coaching staff talk to me all the time and that’s a great help. I am playing regular football at a good level in the Championship so I am really pleased with how things are going.

 

“We have just come out of a bad run of results with two wins but I was always confident we would start winning games again.

 

“There are some really good players here and I’m enjoying playing with them. I wouldn’t like to pick out any individuals because everything we do is a team effort.

 

“I’m taking things one step at a time and we will see what happens from here. I see my future in the long term with Everton but right now, I am enjoying my football and the experience I am getting with Sheffield Wednesday.”
