  • Liam Palmer on 99 appearances for the Owls
  • Defender made his debut in August 2010
  • The 23-year-old scooped Owls’ 2013/14 Player of the Year award

Owls academy product Liam Palmer is approaching a significant landmark in his Sheffield Wednesday career.

The defender, who rose through the SWFC academy ranks and was crowned as the club’s Player of the Year last season, has featured 99 times for the Owls.

Should the 23-year-old feature at Fulham on Saturday, the defender will have clocked up a century of appearances.

Palmer made his debut for Wednesday in the League Cup win over Bury in August 2010.

After making 11 appearances in his debut season, the versatile youngster went on to post 20 more in the 2011/12 promotion campaign and scored his first goal in the Owls’ 3-1 win over MK Dons at Hillsborough.

During Wednesday's first campaign back in the Championship, Palmer gained vital first team experience in a season-long loan spell at Tranmere, were he operated mainly in the engine room.

The lifelong SWFC supporter racked up 46 appearances for Rovers before returning to the Owls ahead of the 2013/14 campaign, where he excelled for Wednesday and enjoyed an outstanding season.

Having made a further 44 appearances, Palmer went on to scoop the club’s 2013/14 Player of the Year award.
