Wildsmith coaches young shot-stoppers

30 May 2019

Young aspiring goalkeepers were treated to a special Soccer Camp with Owls shot-stopper Joe Wildsmith this week.

The Wednesday custodian took time out of his summer break to coach a dedicated goalkeeper camp at the Owls’ Middlewood Road training ground.

There was an excellent turnout too from the young goalkeepers, who were all keen to learn from the Wednesday academy graduate.

Wildsmith, who was recently crowned the Owls’ Community Player of the Year, first coached at Soccer Camps last year.

He told “It was good to get down there and see such a good turnout.

“I’ve been to the camps at the training ground when I was a young lad and it’s nice to see lots of kids still wanting to be goalkeepers!

“It was nice to see familiar faces from the youngsters that came last year as well.

“I was more involved this year, last year it was new to me. This time it was nice to take more of a lead role and do a few more things myself.

“When the season is over the kids miss out on seeing the players. So it’s nice for them to still see people being around the place.

“It’s good to show that we as players care about what is happening at the club’s Community Programme.”
