Nothing but pride

12 July 2019

Owls full back Liam Palmer says he is filled with pride after signing a new contract with his boyhood club.

The Wednesday academy graduate has agreed a new three-year contract with the Owls, and the upcoming season will mark a decade since Palmer turned professional at Hillsborough.

The 27-year-old said: “I’m delighted! It’s my tenth professional season coming up, but I’ve been here since I was seven, 20 years in all.

“I’m not looking at testimonials or retirement yet though! There’s still plenty of life in me!

“I know the club inside out and I’ve seen it go from strength to strength since the chairman came in.

“It’s something you want to be a part of as a player.”

After 20 years with Wednesday, the defender remains grateful for his long-standing affinity with the club he supported as a youngster.

He added: “When you come in each day, you remind yourself of how lucky you are.

“You take a step back and show gratitude for the position you are in.

“There are players out there struggling to find clubs, so when a club like Sheffield Wednesday wants you to stay, you feel nothing but pride. You want to do the best you can for the club.”
