Westwood scoops Owls Player of the Year award

6 May 2017

In the closest ever Player of the Year vote, Keiren Westwood has emerged as the winner.

Fans were asked to cast their vote earlier in the week for their SWFC Player of the Year.

Owls goalkeeper Westwood narrowly pipped Sam Hutchinson for the prize, attracting 30.95% of an extremely close vote.

Midfield man Hutchinson came in second spot with 30.63%, while Ross Wallace finished third gathering 15%.

Three seasons into his Wednesday career, Westwood has had enjoyed another stellar campaign with his consistent displays playing a key role in the Owls securing a spot in the Championship’s top six for the second successive season.

On the clean sheet front, for the third season running, the Owls are on course to equal the club record.

During Westwood’s time at Hillsborough, in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 season, the Owls posted 17 clean sheets to equal a long-standing club record which was set in 1978/79.

This time around, Wednesday are currently on 16 clean sheets, with only Brighton and Newcastle able to boast a higher figure, highlighting once again the resolute nature of the group.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the vote and congratulations Keiren!
