Two sign for Owls Under-21s

4 August 2022

Sheffield Wednesday have bolstered the Under-21 ranks with the additions of Adam Alimi-Adetoro and Luke Cook.

The duo have enjoyed excellent trial periods at the club and join Neil Thompson’s Under-21 side ahead of the new campaign which begins on Monday.

Towering defender Adetoro previously represented Athlone Town in his native Ireland, while centre forward Cook featured for Enfield Town and Merstham FC in the Isthmian League Premier Division last season.

Cook told swfc.co.uk: “It’s a really proud moment for me and my family.

“I have worked so hard and for a long time for this and I feel like I deserve it. Hard work continues now.

“It’s been a difficult journey, I have had a lot of nos, a lot of rejections but I’m happy I never gave up because, being here, it is all completely worth it.

“I came here on trial and did really well and the club believed in me. It’s been positive, I like all the boys, the coach – Thommo has told me exactly what he wants from me as a striker, hold up play, runs in behind, pressing and having the right attitude.

“The rejections in the past made me more determined to prove everyone wrong and that I am good enough. I want to put myself out there and show people what I can do.”

Adetoro said: “I am delighted, it’s been a long time coming and good to get over the line.

“I am a tall and physical defender with pace and I want to show everyone those qualities and that I can do a bit of everything!

“I played a couple of games on trial last season, they went well and I am here now and looking forward.

“Myself and Neil talk all the time and I know exactly what he wants from me. The club have faith in me and of course, that makes me happy.”

The Owls Under-21s kick off their campaign on Monday 8 August, with a clash against Swansea at Stocksbridge (midday).
