UK-based starlet Joey Phuthi delighted to make Sheffield Wednesday debut


England-based Zimbabwean rising star
Joey Phuthi has expressed his delight after making his first team debut for English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day.

The gifted 18-year-old winger came on as a second half substitute for Sheffield Wednesday in their 2-0 away loss at Coventry City.


Phuthi was introduced as an 84th minute substitute and played the remaining part of the game.

Afterwards he took to social media to express his delight.

Phuti, who signed his first professional contract with the Owls in August, was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the UK six years ago when he was 12 years.

The pacey winger who can also play at right back immediately joined Wednesday after his move to England and has risen through the ranks to play a key role in our Under-21 side.

Having featured for the first team in pre-season friendlies against York and Chesterfield over the summer, the 18-year-old has now made a big step by making his professional debut for the Owls.
