Owls starlet will ‘do everything I can’ to make it at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday youngster, Liam Waldock, says that he’ll do whatever he can to take his opportunity at the club – admitting that there are things he needs to work on.

The 20-year-old made his senior debut for the Owls against Fulham in the Carabao Cup last September, but that was to be his only appearance of the campaign although he did make the bench on a handful of occasions.

Now, following the news that the club had exercised his one-year option, Waldock will be eager to try and show Darren Moore what he’s capable of, especially given the fact that relegation into League One may well give him a better opportunity to get some more senior games under his belt.

Waldock, a lifelong Wednesday who has been at the club since he was just eight-years-old, has played a pivotal role for Lee Bullen’s U23s this season – captaining them on occasion – and is likely to get his chance to show Moore what he can do when preseason begins in a few weeks’ time.

Speaking to the club’s official website about the season just gone, the young midfielder knows he’s got a way to go – but he’s prepared to work for it.

He explained, “For the U23s, we had a difficult start to the season, and lost games we shouldn’t have but after Christmas we were very good. I have played a lot of games at youth level, I’ve captained the team on occasion, on my academy journey here, I’ve played up in age groups and I’ve enjoyed doing all that and it shows I’m doing the right things.

“There are parts of my game I need to work on, I think I finished the season with five goals for the 23s, I’d like to get that tally higher given the position I play but I am really motivated and given a chance next season, I will do everything I can to take it.”

Waldock was one of several U23 players who have been confirmed for next season alongside the likes of Ryan Galvin, Declan Thompson and Lewis Farmer, while there are hopes that Josh Dawodu and Charles Hagan will sign new contracts for next season.
