Owls to face first ‘twansfer’ signing

Have your say

Sheffield Wednesday head to Yeovil Town on Saturday, knowing they could come up against the player hailed as football’s first “twansfer” signing.

Kieran Agard’s arrival at the Somerset club is credited by the club’s manager, Terry Skiverton, as being down to his followers on the social networking site, Twitter.

After losing a number of players at the tail-end of last season, Skiverton took to “tweeting” in a bid to get suggestions for possible signings that could be achievable for Yeovil.

Agard was one of the mentioned names and following a trial, the former Everton striker signed a one-year deal in June.

The striker made his first league start in the midweek 1-0 win over Wycombe playing more than an hour, and could keep his starting place for the visit of the Owls. He is a regular tweeter himself - recently he revealed he was “at bowling getting beat by my mum & lil cuzin ... I better step up my game”.

Wednesday head to Huish Park looking to replicate last season’s win there.

Goals from Jermaine Johnson and the now-departed Tommy Miller earned the Owls the spoils in the first ever league meeting between the two clubs.
