The Owls have taken two young Manchester United players to Middlewood Road as part of the Premier League giants’ new Pro Experience Programme.
A number of United’s Professional Development Phase (Under-17 to Under-23) players will have the opportunity to experience a senior football environment over the course of the season.
Players will gain a true taste of the Football League environment, enjoying varying periods with clubs distinct from a formal loan move, experiencing first-hand the training standards and situations that come in the build-up to important matches.
The first two players are already benefiting from the programme by spending time with Wednesday this week.
Both players have gained key experience from working with Darren Moore’s squad, seeing exactly what goes into a busy training schedule in senior football.
The programme also provides players with an ideal platform to prove themselves ahead of potential loan moves in the future.
