Owls to pay respects to Kevin Austin

26 November 2018

Sheffield Wednesday were saddened to learn of the passing of former academy coach Kevin Austin.

The former Barnsley and Chesterfield defender worked with the Owls youth set-up after hanging up his boots following a two-decade playing career.

Kevin was an immensely popular figure with staff, players and parents at Sheffield Wednesday having coached the schoolboy age groups in the Owls academy.


He later joined Scunthorpe as Youth Development Phase Lead Coach in September 2016.

The Owls Under-16s and Under-18s face Hull City on Saturday morning at Middlewood Road, while the schoolboy age groups face Leicester on Sunday morning.

All academy fixtures this coming weekend will be preceded by a minute’s silence.

RIP Kevin [1973-2018]
