The lowdown on Jay Glover

23 August 2022

Jay Glover makes his professional debut for the Owls this evening against Rochdale in the second round of the Carabao Cup, so here’s the lowdown on the 19-year-old!

Glover joined Wednesday aged 14 on 8 May 2017 after playing with local sides Sheffield Boys and Greenhill.

The Sheffielder has predominantly played in midfield for the Owls’ younger sides, taking on a box-to-box role in the engine room.

After completing his two-year scholarship, Glover signed his maiden professional deal in June 2021.

A regular for Wednesday’s Under-21 side, the youngster was called up to first team training by Darren Moore at the start of pre-season and played in our friendly against Alfreton earlier this summer.

Owls academy manager Steven Haslam said: “Jay is a Sheffield lad who’s been with the club a number of years and completed his two-year scholarship last year.

“He gained some experience training with the first team in pre-season this summer and he’s a developing player.

“It’s fantastic to see another player make his debut because that’s what the academy is all about, getting players into the first team.

“It’s a big opportunity for Jay and a proud moment for his family and everyone involved with the academy.

“This gives the other young players a real, clear belief that they could be in the same position.“
