Former Owls player and diehard Wednesdayite Richard Hinds has been handed a one-week trial with League Two side Crewe Alexandra.

The 31-year-old was released from his four-year spell at Hillsborough in the summer and Crewe boss Dario Gradi will take a look over the defender over the next week.

Hinds played in Crewe’s reserves in their 1-0 victory over their Notts County counterparts on Monday.

Alex are keen to bolster their defensive ranks after suffering a poor start to the campaign, losing all five competitive matches so far this term.

Hinds made 75 appearances for the Owls following his move from Scunthorpe United.
