Trialist Padraig Amond has left Hillsborough after failing to impress Owls boss Gary Megson enough to earn a contract at the club.

The Irish striker has played in four friendly matches for the Owls since arriving at the club last Tuesday on trial.

Megson had revealed following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Leeds United that he’d like to keep the former Shamrock Rovers man for another week to assess his qualities.

But following last night’s defeat at Oakwell Megson has decided not to offer him a deal to stay at the club.

‘It was difficult; he was chucked in against a decent side,’ he told the Sheffield Star.

‘We won’t be offering him anything. He is a great lad and I hope somebody else will give him the opportunity.

‘I have to do what is right for the club. We are going to bring players in, in that (forward) position but they have to be the right ones.’
