Sheffield Wednesday just missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season, losing in the play-off final to Hull City.

The Owls have improved their playing squad massively with some excellent transfer business under the guidance of Portuguese manager Carlos Carvalhal.

However, the club must not forget their ability to bring through top young talent.

One such player who could be in with a chance is 19-year-old Jack Stobbs.

Highly rated by fans the Leeds born winger recently put in a fantastic performance as Wednesday won a pre-season friendly against Worksop Town.

His wonderful display caught the eye of many a Wednesday fan, who clearly feel that the teenager has what it takes to be a regular in the Wednesday first-team going forward.

He featured for Wednesday just once last season, toward the end of the campaign, in what was his first appearance for Wednesday in two years – the other appearance being his debut for the club.

If he can keep catching the eye the way he has during pre-season, it will certainly not be two years until his next appearance.
