A clutch of young Owls have been added to the senior squad list ahead of tonight’s clash with Leicester City Under-21s.
Wednesday’s Papa Johns Trophy campaign will come to a close this evening and Darren Moore has given the youngsters an opportunity to experience the first team environment.
Here is the lowdown on those stepping up this evening together with David Agbontohoma, Jay Glover and Leojo Davidson, who have already featured this season.
The 17-year-old shot-stopper joined Wednesday from Manchester City in the summer of 2021 and signed his first professional contract with the club last week. The young goalkeeper trains regularly with the Owls first team, supporting senior custodians Cameron Dawson and David Stockdale.
The towering centre back joined Wednesday at the beginning of the season having impressed during a trial period at the end of the last campaign. He represented Athlone Town in his native Ireland prior to joining the Owls.
The second-year scholar joined the Owls academy system early and is a regular for the club’s Under-18s and 21s. Fusire can play in central midfield but is equally adept as a right-sided full back.
Brazilian-born, Aguas joined the Owls on a scholarship after moving with his family to Sheffield. The 19-year-old is a regular for Wednesday’s Under-21s and often operates as an attacking left wing back. He signed his first professional contract in June 2021.

Another local prodigy, Shipston has been with the Owls academy from the foundation phase. Currently a second-year scholar, the talented central midfielder features for both our Under-18s and 21s.
London-product Dunn made the switch to S6 in the summer after completing a trial period last season. The 19-year-old came through Charlton’s academy system and operates in the centre of midfield.
Powerful forward Cadamarteri signed his first professional contract with the Owls in June after joining Wednesday’s academy in the Under-9s. The 17-year-old features for both the club’s Under-18s and 21s.
