Keeping it clean

23 October 2014

Young Owls goalkeeper Brad McDonagh has put his fine run of form down to the hard work on the training pitch after a string of successive clean sheets.

Academy product McDonagh has seen his efforts in goal for both the Wednesday Under-18s and Under-21s warrant an impressive seven straight shutouts.

Speaking to McDonagh says he is naturally pleased with his purple patch:

"The start of the season wasn't bad, it could have been better but we've not conceded in the last six games at Under-18 level, which is great for everyone.

“We also kept a clean sheet for the Under-21s so I’m really pleased to be honest."

The youngster has praised the influence of academy goalkeeper coach Nicky Weaver, who re-joined Wednesday over the summer.

McDonagh said: "Nicky has helped me with my distribution and communication to the back four, which has probably improved most out of all.

"He's also worked a lot on my kicking so I can hit the frontmen a lot more, as well as a bit more technique-wise when it comes to making saves, especially my handling. It's all helped me a lot."

McDonagh will be next aiming to extend his clean sheet tally when the Under-18s host Huddersfield on Saturday 1 November.
