- Matt Young makes professional debut
- Owls defender on loan with Carlisle
- Cumbrians lose out 1-0 to Cambridge
Owls right back Matt Young made his professional debut on Saturday for loan side Carlisle United.
The 20-year-old has impressed in the Under-21s league this season and is now gaining vital first team experience with the Cumbrians.
Young stored 90 minutes under his belt and although the Blues went down 1-0 to Cambridge United at Brunton Park, the defender says he will not forget his first involvement in the Football League.
He said after the game: “For me personally, it was a day I won't forget making my competitive professional debut, just gutted we couldn't get a win to mark the day!
“I want to say a massive thank you to all Carlisle fans that have welcomed me and all Sheffield Wednesday fans that have wished me good luck!”
Carlisle boss Keith Curle added: “I think there’s more to come from Matt. He came in and slotted into the right back role really well.
“It’s very difficult for a young man to make his debut in those conditions but he integrated well into the squad.
“He has a fantastic pedigree and he’s been monitored for a while by Lee Dykes.
“It was a case of getting the timing right as to when we could get him here. He didn’t look out of place and that’s what you want from your first game.”
