International bright young thing

19 September 2014

  • Stevie May looking forward to the future
  • Striker has ambitions for Owls and Scotland
  • 21-year-old in fine form for Wednesday

Stevie May has his long term sight set on a senior international call-up - but only if he continues his excellent start domestically with Wednesday.

The young striker signed off for the Scotland Under-21s two weeks ago against Luxembourg, winning his eighth cap in the European Championship qualifier.

His next target is the Scotland seniors, but first and foremost, May is focused on life with the Owls.

He said:  “I’m not thinking too much about a call-up for the full national squad but if that comes, then great. I would be delighted.

“But there is no point losing sleep and worrying about what you need to do to get into the squad.

“There are normally top, top strikers in the squad and with the formation the manager plays, it’s going to be really hard.

“If I can keep playing well at Wednesday, then I will see where that takes me.”

May is hopeful that his flirtation with the Under-21s will serve him well for his future career, on both the domestic and international stage.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a promising start to his S6 stint having joined in the summer from SPL side St Johnstone.

May has claimed two goals so far and has impressed with his work rate and general demeanor, reflecting similar observations from his time with the young Scots.

He added: “It’s been a nice experience playing for the Under-21s over the last year or so.

“It was great to get eight caps but I probably started playing for them later than what I would have preferred.

“It’s done and dusted now. I’ve drawn a line under it and put that behind me.

“I’ve got to now concentrate on club football and we will see what happens.”
