Congratulations are in order for Wednesday central defender Mark Beevers, after he scooped the Wickes Apprentice of the Year gong on Sunday night.

The 18 year old beat five other Championship youngsters to the coveted award: recognition of his progress through the ranks at Hillsborough, and his selection for the England under 19 squad this year. Recent first team performances alongside Richard Wood at the heart of the Owls defence show immense promise. The future is bright!

At the Football League Awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Park Lane, Mark also picked up a cool five grand for the Owls Academy and a stack of travel vouchers for himself.

Good work, fella!

(The Football League Awards show will be aired on Sky Sports 1 on Thursday 6th March at 8pm)
