Westwood named Owls Player of the Year

24 April 2015

Sheffield Wednesday fans have voted Keiren Westwood as the club’s 2014/15 Player of the Year.

The Owls goalkeeper has won with a landslide 78% of the vote.

Westwood set solid foundations for the season on the opening day at Brighton, making a terrific stop to deny former Owl Chris O’Grady and help Wednesday to a 1-0 victory.

Since then, the 30-year-old has gone from strength to strength and claimed the September, October and December Player of the Month awards.

The Republic of Ireland shot-stopper has shown his international credentials throughout the 2014/15 term and has 17 league clean sheets to his name - equalling a club record set in 1978/79.

Westwood adds the SWFC Player of the Year award to his other end of season accolades including the Wise Old Owls and SODA Player of the Year.

Following Saturday’s Yorkshire derby with Leeds, Westwood will be presented with the award at Hillsborough.

Tom Lees, who has also enjoyed a fine first season at Hillsborough, came runner-up with 14% of the vote and Kieran Lee in third place with 4%.

Thank you to all supporters who took part in the Player of the Year vote.
