Irvine makes swift Owls return

08 Jan 2010 - 13:07:52

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed the former Preston North End boss Alan Irvine as their new manager.

The 51-year-old, who has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract at Hillsborough, replaces Brian Laws who parted company with the Owls last month.

Irvine, who was sacked by Preston just two weeks ago, said of his appointment: "I am delighted to take up the position of manager at Sheffield Wednesday. It is a club with great traditions and a brilliant outlook for the future.

"While the league table shows us that there is a lot of hard work in front of us between now and the end of the current season, it is a challenge I am relishing and I believe the squad here at Hillsborough is more than capable of pulling away from the current situation at the bottom of the Championship.

"Sheffield Wednesday has made excellent progress off the pitch in the past 12 months and it is now my job to make sure that progress is mirrored on the pitch.

"I am really looking forward to starting work with the players and I can't wait to get out on the training pitch to start preparing for the vital matches we have coming up this month."
