Owls kid moves on

Have your say

SHEFFIELD FC have signed 19-year-old right back Jack Barnett after his release by Sheffield Wednesday.

He graduated from the Owls academy a year ago and was given a one-year pro contract.

Sheffield coach Ian Whitehorne said: “Jack had a number of options open to him after leaving Wednesday but we had a meeting at the ground, with him and his dad, and it didn’t take him long to decide that his future was best served by him joining us.”

Barnett joins fellow newcomers Matt Varley, Charlie Weir and Shane Kelsey at the city outfit.
