Freescoring Wednesday made light work of their opening domestic friendly fixtures – beating Stocksbridge Park Steels 6-1 and Hallam FC 9-0 tonight.

The Owls split their senior squad down the middle for the double header – and the move seemed to have paid off with two emphatic wins.

At the Look Local Stadium, new signing Neil Mellor made a superb introduction to the Wednesday faithful in attendance by bagging four goals on his debut in the blue and white stripes.

Jermaine Johnson also bagged a brace in a match which saw assistant boss Rob Kelly take charge from the sidelines.

It got better at Hallam FC as Wednesday, watched by boss Alan Irvine, smashed nine by their hosts.

Marcus Tudgay bagged a hat-trick, while Paul Heffernan also showed Wednesdayites his scoring ability with a brace, as did Tommy Miller, while Lewis Buxton and Luke Boden also netted.

Wednesday are now set to field a stronger squad for the trip to Grimsby Town, who beat Frickley Athletic 3-0 tonight, on Saturday.
