Impressive Owls

29 March 2014

The Owls’ Under-18s returned to winning ways on Saturday morning with a comfortable win over Nottingham Forest at Middlewood Road.

Wednesday posted a 4-1 win, with all the goals coming in an action-packed first half.

Jake Ellam fired a brace and Franck Betra was also on the score sheet.

Forest conceded an own goal and had a man sent off to seal a miserable match for the Midlanders.

Coach Steve Haslam said: “It was a terrific performance from the lads, who showed good character to get back to winning ways.

“I thought we got into our rhythm early on in the game with some incisive passing and moving.

“The goals we scored were clinical finishes.

“Again we fielded a young side with Spencer Brown from the Under-16s at centre back and it was good to give George Hirst from the Under-15s his first taste of Under-18 football.”
