Palmer's progress at Sheffield Wednesday

2 May 2014

Liam Palmer has spoken of his hugely productive campaign in which the 22-year-old landed a string of top awards.

The Owls’ academy product was named as The Star SWFC Player of the Year this week, the latest in a growing line of accolades for the utility man.

Palmer has also scooped the official SWFC Player of the Year and that of SODA (with Chris Kirkland), the Wise Old Owls and the Owls Foundation.

Of equal significance is the fact that Liam has posted 44 senior appearances in all competitions for Wednesday this term.

He said: “It’s been an amazing season for me and I feel I have made some real progress.

“To play on a regular basis is all that any player can ask for and I have achieved that this season.

“Whether it’s at right back or in midfield, it doesn’t really concern me because I am in the manager’s thoughts and pulling on the blue and white striped shirt.

“It’s important for me now to use this season as a base and continue to progress next season.”

On his plethora of awards, Palmer added: “I have to thank everyone across the board who has voted for me, particularly the fans, because that means the most.

“These guys are the ones who watch us play week in and week out, they know what they are seeing and to come out on top of any fans’ poll is the best feeling.

“They have followed us far and wide this season and every step of the way.

“What we want to do now is to give them all something to smile about after another long journey to Ipswich this weekend.”
