Palmer makes 250th Owls appearance

27 February 2020

Liam Palmer reached a significant milestone on Wednesday evening as he made his 250th appearance for the Owls.

The boyhood Wednesdayite marked the occasion by contributing to the home side’s late winning goal against the Addicks.

His free kick found Tom Lees who nodded on for Steven Fletcher, and the Scot made no mistake to head in from close range to fuel jubilant scenes.

Palmer made his Wednesday debut back in August 2010 during a 1-0 victory over Bury in the first round of the League Cup at Hillsborough.

Back then, the academy product operated as a midfielder, making 20 appearances for Wednesday as they gained promotion from League One in 2011/12.

His solitary goal for the club came in September 2011 in a 3-1 victory over MK Dons at Hillsborough.

After a productive loan stint with Tranmere in 2012/13, during which he was a near ever-present in the engine room, Palmer returned to S6 and moved to full back, and his impact was deservedly recognised by Owls supporters.

He was crowned Wednesday’s official Player of the Season, also scooping the same prize from the Wise Old Owls, SODA, Owls Foundation and the Sheffield Star.

The 28-year-old twice helped Wednesday reach the Championship play-offs in 2015/16 and 2016/17 respectively and is the longest-serving player currently at the club.

Palmer’s impressive performances for Wednesday have also seen him step onto the international stage with Scotland.

His first call-up came in March 2019, making his debut the same month against Kazakhstan, and Palmer has since racked up five caps for the Scots.

Congratulations on 250 appearances, Liam!
