Barry Bannan named Owls Community Champion

21 April 2021

Barry Bannan has won Wednesday’s Community Player of the Year award for the 2020/21 campaign.

The Owls skipper has shown outstanding support for the club’s community activities in what has been a difficult year for so many.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hindered opportunities for players to carry out their regular community commitments in person, but the Owls have continued to support causes from afar, either socially distanced or via Zoom.

As captain, Barry has led the way to ensure Wednesday’s presence in the community is upheld, helping to arrange and carry out support for those in need during these unprecedented times.


Barry said: “I’m very grateful to win this award, it’s brilliant.

“As a club and as players it’s never been more important to support our local community after this really tough year.

“It’s been a shame that we couldn’t get out into the community more and meet our supporters face to face, but thankfully we’ve worked on new ways of staying in contact.

“This club holds a special place in my heart, the support I’ve had has been amazing from day one, so it’s always a pleasure to do anything I can to give something back.

“It means a great deal to me, to be recognised with this award.”
