Joe Wildsmith believes the Owls can be proud of what they have achieved in the Capital One Cup.
Wednesday exited at the quarter final stage after losing 2-0 to Stoke at The Britannia Stadium.
While disappointed to have the cup run come to an end, Wildsmith says the club can take a lot of pride, explaining:
“It’s been a long while since we’ve had a cup run and the fans have really got behind it.
“We’ve seen some good games this season, particularly against Newcastle and Arsenal but last night was one step too many.
“We’ve got memories to keep forever because we have upset a lot of odds to get to where we did.
“Coming up each round against strong teams from the Premier League, it was likely that it would come to an end but we wanted to ride it for as long as possible.
“The final bit wasn’t quite there and on another day it might have been.”
The 19-year-old, who featured four times in the cup, is now keen to build on the positive experience and he added:
“It didn’t go our way but we don’t want to take any negatives from it, we keep going.
“The gaffer has given me a chance and I’m thankful to him because it’s been a good experience for me playing in these games.”
