Feeling the benefits

Owls goalkeeper Cameron Dawson is feeling the benefit of playing regular first team football.

The 19-year-old Owls academy product is currently on loan at Conference side Alfreton Town and has made 13 appearances for the Reds.

Dawson’s initial month loan deal was extended to 22 November, and the young Wednesday shot-stopper is enjoying the experience.

He told the official SWFC website: “I'm seeing an improvement playing regular men's first team football.



“It’s just what I need at this stage of my career. I need games and that’s what I’m enjoying at the moment.

“Nothing compares to playing first team football, where there are points on the line.”

Alfreton upset the odds on Saturday to defeat in-form Torquay on home soil.

Torquay had lost just twice in 13 games and went on a six-game winning streak in that spell.

But the Reds claimed a much-needed victory at The Impact Arena, winning 4-2, and are now two points from safety.

Dawson said: “I always fancy us at home, we've picked up some good results and hopefully we can kick on now. Not many fancied us against Torquay but it was deserved.

“The good thing about my loan move to Alfreton is the number of games there is to play.

“The games come round quickly so there has been a lot to learn but I can see it is improving me as a player.”
