Strike ace Stevie May joins Sheffield Wednesday

9 August 2014

  • Hotshot striker Stevie May signs for Wednesday
  • Prolific hitman pens four-year deal
  • 67 goals in 118 career appearances

Young strike sensation Stevie May has signed for Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee.

The St Johnstone hitman has put pen to paper on a four-year contract at Hillsborough.

May is one of the most prolific goalscorers in years north of the border and heads south with an incredible strike return.

The 21-year-old has fired 67 goals from just 118 appearances in his burgeoning career to date.

May began his career with SPL side St Johnstone, making his senior debut aged just 16 – and typically scoring on his debut from the bench.

He went out on loan to Alloa Athletic in December 2011 to gain first team experience and posted a record of almost a goal a game, ending on 19 from 22 appearances.

In January 2012, May won an unprecedented three awards in one month - the SFL Player of the Month, Young Player of the Month and Irn-Bru Ginger Boot.

May extended his loan pedigree the following campaign with a near season-long switch to Hamilton Academical, where he continued his flourishing form in the final third.

From just 33 appearances, May notched a hugely impressive 25 goals, going on to lift the Irn-Bru SFL Phenomenal Young Player of the Season.

He returned to St Johnstone for the 2013/14 season and duly netted 27 goals through the campaign, helping the Saints to the Scottish FA Cup for the first time in their history along the way.

May has been capped at Scotland Under-20 and Under-21 level, scoring twice in six appearances for the latter.

The Perth product was also on target for St Johnstone in the Europa League last Thursday in what proved his farewell outing.

He will wear shirt number seven for the duration of his S6 stay.
