Dawson and Wildsmith sign new contracts

28 August 2015

Young Wednesday goalkeepers Cameron Dawson and Joe Wildsmith have each signed contract extensions at Hillsborough.

The talented shot-stoppers will now stay with the Owls until the summer of 2017.

Dawson and Wildsmith initially graduated from the club’s academy to sign professional deals with Wednesday.

Dawson told “I’m delighted. I’m looking forward to working hard and doing what comes next in my career. I feel I have made a lot of progress in every year I have been at the club.

“Looking forward, I want to gain as much experience as possible. I have been out on loan before and in terms for any goalkeeper’s development, I think that is really beneficial.

“Going out on loan and getting games is something I would look to do again because the experience is invaluable.

“But right now I want to carry on working as hard as I can, play as many games as I can, and then see what comes up.

“I want to push myself as hard as I can and see how far I can go.

“I’ve been at the club for five years now and to get a new contract is really rewarding. I would like to thank Andy Rhodes and everyone who has helped with my development.”

Fellow keeper Wildsmith has also spoken of his delight after extending his S6 stay.

He said: “I’m really pleased to sign a new contract at the club that I have always supported and I want to stay here a lot longer.

“I am pleased with my development in the two years since I signed my first professional contract. Having first team football art Barnsley at the end of last season and with Wednesday this season has brought me on even further.

“It is a brilliant feeling to play for your hometown club and a dream come true really.  I am really happy here and I am lucky to work with great people.

“Cammy and myself have come through since the Under-16s, we train together, we see each other outside football and have become really good friends.  All the hard work for both of us has paid off.

“Andy Rhodes has been a great influence on both us. He is a big factor in why we have these new contracts, he has shown faith in us and I thank him a lot.”
