Keiren Westwood extends Owls stay

9 July 2019

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has signed a new contract with Sheffield Wednesday.

The popular shot-stopper has penned a two-year deal at Hillsborough.

The coming campaign will be Westwood’s sixth with Wednesday having joined the club in July 2014.


A clean sheet in the 1-0 win away at Brighton kick-started a superb debut term for the Republic of Ireland international.

The 34-year-old went on to win the Player of the Year award and posted an outstanding 17 clean sheets, equalling the long-standing club record.

He was also named in the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Championship Team of the Year.


Wednesday posted another 17 clean sheets in 2015/16, with Westwood making 37 appearances in total, in a season which saw the Owls miss out on promotion at the last in the play-off final.

Westwood was a key figure in the Owls’ backline again in 2016/17, helping Wednesday to achieve a place in the Championship play-offs for the second year running and scooping the club’s official Player of the Year award for the second time in his S6 career.

With opportunities limited throughout the first part of the 2018/19 campaign, the experienced shot-stopper fought his way back into contention and thrived under new manager Steve Bruce.


He made 21 appearances in the second half of the season, 11 of which were clean sheets.

Westwood has made 164 appearances in total for the Owls.
