Sheffield Wednesday starlet Ryan Galvin eyes first team after Darren Moore discussions
There were plenty of eyes on young Ryan Galvin as he made his senior debut for Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season, and now he’s hoping to take the next step on the ladder.
Galvin, who was one of the U23 players to have had their deals extended into the 2021/22 season, made his Owls debut in the FA Cup back in January against Exeter City, before going up against Premier League opposition at Everton a few weeks later.
Having captained the U23 team this season, the left-sided defender says that he’s hoping to make his mark following relegation to League One, admitting that he wants to attract interest from boss, Darren Moore if given the chance.
He told the club’s official website, “I’m just looking forward to being here for another year. I was very happy and yes, my feeling right now is to just look forward… I will be working hard over the summer and when it comes to pre-season, I want to hit the ground running…
“But I don’t want to get ahead of myself, there is a lot of work to do. When I train with the first team, I don’t take that for granted. When I’m there, I want to be effective and at the right levels to compete with them. It’s all about the small details and when given the chance, I want to be in the eye of the gaffer.”
He went on to explain that he and Moore have had talks since his arrival, saying, “If I can play a part next season for the first team that would be great and it’s what I’m out to do.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations with the gaffer, he’s really into the small details, the tiny details that can make such a difference. He’s a lovely person and has really lifted things at the club. I’m really looking forward to coming back for pre-season and getting the work done, I don’t mind that side of it at all, I just love football.”
Galvin joined Wednesday from Wigan Athletic in January of last year, and is highly-rated amongst the youth setup at Middlewood Road – his next step is trying to make his league debut as the Owls begin life in League One.
