Sheffield Wednesday starlet, Liam Shaw, on Owls’ new ‘feel-good factor’ - And praise for Atdhe Nuhiu

He’s still new to first team football, but lifelong Sheffield Wednesday fan and recent debutant, Liam Shaw, says there is a ‘feel-good factor’ to the Owls after returning for preseason.

Shaw, who is still just 19, made his Wednesday debut last month as he came on in the 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, and has been tipped for good things by current SWFC boss, Garry Monk.

The tall midfield man is hoping to get even more minutes under his belt in the 2020/21 as the Monk revolution continues, and he admits that the intake of new staff such as James Beattie has been a boost for the players as they prepare for what will be a tough season ahead.

Speaking to the club recent, the Owls academy graduate said, “I want to keep working, and trying to impress the gaffer. We’ve got new coaching staff, so there’s like a new kind of ‘feel-good factor’ type thing when everyone has come in.

“I want to get as many minutes as I can, and every time I play try and do my best for the club.”

Meanwhile, Shaw also praised a former teammate, Atdhe Nuhiu, for his role in his development so far, adding, “I would’ve said Atdhe, he’s always been giving me advice and talking to me. Giving me pointers and stuff, he’s been really helpful.”

Wednesday are currently in preseason training at Middlewood Road, but will head out to Loughborough next week as preparations take a step up ahead of the new campaign.
