18s update, recent form and sharing the goals

30 September 2021

The Owls Under-18s return to action on Saturday after almost three weeks without a league fixture.

Andy Holdsworth’s side have 10 points from a possible 15, sit top of the table, and have impressed at the start of the 2021/22 season.

A trip to Crewe this weekend is next up (11.30am).

But while there has been a gap in our league schedule, the 18s have been busy over the past few weeks with cup competitions and friendly games.

Wednesday are involved in the Clarets Cup, a competition founded by Burnley for Under-17s.

First year scholars and players from the lower age groups are permitted to feature and the Owls kicked off their Clarets Cup campaign with a 1-1 draw against Blackburn.

The competition begins with a group stage format, each consisting of five teams with the top two progressing to the knockouts. The venue for the final is Burnley’s Turf Moor.

Along with Blackburn, we have Grimsby, Salford and Bradford in our group.

In-form striker Bailey Cadamarteri bagged the Owls’ goal against Rovers.

Throughout the league campaign so far this season, Wednesday have scored six goals equally shared between impressive duo Cadamarteri and Leojo Davidson.

A recent friendly with Rochdale last week saw other members of the squad on the scoresheet which pleased Holdsworth.

He told swfc.co.uk: “Bailey scored last Tuesday in the cup which continues his run and is a major plus because you always want your forwards scoring. But we also played Rochdale on Friday in a private friendly and those two lads didn’t score on this occasion.

“Murtadha (Al-Jahadhmy), Kamil (Maciag) and Denai (Rhule) got the goals on that day, so it was good to see the goals shared round.

“It doesn’t matter who scores as long as they go in but it’s pleasing for us that we have our forwards scoring a lot of goals.

“Leojo played right back for us last year and is now playing as a number 10, we like to make changes to find the best positions for the lads and he is doing really well.”
