Lavery signs new deal

21 March 2014

Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery has signed a new contract at Hillsborough.

The exciting frontman graduated through the Owls’ ranks to become a big success on the first team stage and has now committed to Wednesday for the long term.

After impressing for the club’s Development Squad on a regular basis this term and enjoying a prolific loan spell with League Two side Plymouth, Lavery was thrust into action by head coach Stuart Gray and has repaid that faith with a string of eye-catching performances.

The 21-year-old bagged a brace in Wednesday’s 6-0 demolition of local rivals Leeds earlier this season before repeating the feat against Birmingham.

Speaking exclusively to, Lavery said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to have committed my future to Sheffield Wednesday. It's a massive, historic football club with a brilliant fan base.

“A big part of my decision to sign a new deal was down to Stuart Gray for the faith he has shown in me and the environment he has created in recent times.

“I believe I will gain more experience and become a better player by working with Stuart and his coaching staff.

“I take immense pride every time I wear the shirt and I'm excited to be part of this great club's future.”
