Happy at Hillsborough

17 March 2014

Owls defender Lewis Buxton has said he would be happy to spend the rest of his career at Hillsborough.

The 30-year-old is one of the club’s longest serving players after originally joining on loan from Stoke in October 2008.

That move was soon made permanent in January 2009 and since then the experienced stopper has remained an integral part of the Owls’ backline.

Speaking of his time at Hillsborough, Buxton said: “I’ve been here for around six years now and I enjoy it here, I like living in the area and I enjoy playing in front of a big turnout of supporters every week.

“I want to try and play here as long as I can and hopefully I can progress with the club towards the end of my career.”

Asked whether he would like to commit the rest of his playing days to Wednesday, he said:

“Hopefully, I’ve been here so long and I don’t see any reason why not.

“I’m always working hard to progress, I’ve had a few injuries which obviously set you back but now I want to enjoy the rest of my career and hopefully that is here with Wednesday.”

And the full back has big ambitions over the coming seasons with a push for the Premier League on the radar for the former Stoke man.

He added: “Hopefully I can be here as the club one day makes a push for the Premier League before I stop playing and that’s my main aim.”
