It was confirmed over the weekend that the young Owls pair had agreed to stick around at S6 after being offered fresh terms at Hillsborough, and they’ll both be looking to make their mark this season when given the chance.

Maltby, 18, and Glover, 20, both spoke of their pride at extending their stay at their boyhood club, and Haslam has heaped praise on the pair as they settle in for another season in blue and white.

“Mackenzie has been with us for a long time, he’s come up from the schoolboy programme,” he told the club’s official website. “He’s come out of his scholarship really well and captained the U18s last year, so it shows that he has the respect of the staff and his colleagues.

“His standards are high on a day-to-day basis, he’s got a good character and he’ll go into the U21 squad and look to develop further…

“Jay is a couple of years older than Mackenzie and he’s been involved with the first team, he’s played some games in the cup and he’s been on the bench… We think there’s more to come from Jay, it’s up to us a group of staff to support his development and ultimately for him to buy into what we’re trying to do.

“He’s had exposure being around the senior professionals, he’ll learnt from those experiences and now he’ll look to kick on.”
