Hirst shortlisted for Apprentice of the Year award

27 March 2017

Owls striker George Hirst has been shortlisted for the LFE Championship Apprentice of the Year award.
 
The 18-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic season for the Owls Under-18s and Under-23s, being a regular on the scoresheet for the SWFC youth teams.
 
The 16/17 campaign has also seen the youngster make his senior debut for Wednesday.
 
In August 2016, Hirst came on from the bench in the Owls’ EFL Cup clash with Cambridge at The Abbey Stadium, and then again in the December Championship clash with Reading at The Madejski.
 
Hirst has also made great strides on the international stage with the England Under-18s.
 
Back in September, he fired home a first half brace as the young Lions defeated Israel 5-1 at The Globe Arena.
 
His goalscoring exploits continued in November against Poland, when the frontman struck either side of the interval in England’s 2-0 win at The Lamex Stadium.
 
Hirst added to his international tally last week in England’s 2-1 victory over Qatar in Doha.
 
The Owls academy product broke the deadlock after 15 minutes at the Aspire Complex.
 
The winner will be announced at the EFL Awards 2017 ceremony which will take place in the capital next month.
 
Also in the running for the LFE Championship Apprentice of the Year award are Ben Brereton (Nottingham Forest) and Lloyd Kelly (Bristol City).
