Aiming for impact

2 September 2013


Owls loanee Jordan Spence is aiming to make an impact during his loan stint with Wednesday.

The West Ham man’s temporary move to Hillsborough was confirmed at the weekend, in time for the defender to feature against Middlesbrough.

Having helped the Owls gain a point at The Riverside, the 23-year-old is excited for the weeks ahead and to get stuck into the thick of things in S6.

He told “I got the shout on Friday and as soon as I heard of the chance to come here, I went straight down to the West Ham training ground, grabbed my boots and got on the next train!

“I thought I did ok in the game but the most important thing was that we took something away from the game.

“I know I can be much better than that, I’ve not played a lot of football this season so physically it was a good test and something for me to build on.

“I’ve had one game and now I want to get stuck into training and hopefully help the boys get some positive results and see what happen from there.”

The full back, who is also well-equipped to play in central defence, has said he is looking forward to the prospect of making his home debut.

Spence has experience of playing at Hillsborough from four years ago with former loan club Scunthorpe, and is looking forward to stepping out in these surroundings once again.

He added: “This is a big club and an even bigger privilege for me to come here and play.

“The support here is awesome. Obviously I’ve had the privilege of playing for West Ham, another club with a huge fanbase.

“I’ve played at Hillsborough before for Scunthorpe so I know how important the fans are here and what role they can play.

“Hopefully I can make an impact here, do the business and help to start racking up those points.

“It’s important that I play football, I played football sporadically last season  so I’ve got the chance now to come here and play well, I’ll concentrate on doing that and whatever will be, will be.”
