Reach excited by Wednesday challenge

31 August 2016

New recruit Adam Reach is excited by the next challenge of his career following his deadline day switch to Hillsborough.

The left winger joined the Owls for an undisclosed fee from Premier League Middlesbrough and has his sights fixed firmly on flourishing in Sheffield.

He exclusively told “I’m really pleased. It’s been a whirlwind day and I went into it not really knowing what was going to happen.

“I trained with Boro and then as soon as I was told of the interest from Sheffield Wednesday, I wanted to get straight down here.

“Everyone knows what the club achieved last season and everyone knows what they want to achieve this season. I want to be part of that.”

Having spent the lion’s share of a successful campaign with Preston in the Championship last time out on loan, Reach is fully aware of second tier demands.

The wideman proved a hugely popular performer at Deepdale, making 35 appearances with four goals, and leading to transfer interest from a range of rivals.

But focused fully on Hillsborough, he said: ““This is a huge club and the next challenge of my career, the time feels right.

“You try not to get involved in speculation but once I knew Sheffield Wednesday were interested, I knew where I wanted my next move to be.

“This place rocks and I know because I have played here. I can’t wait to pull on the shirt and get cracking.”
