Wolves’ young players have been handed an opportunity to impress during pre-season.
Some senior players have been granted extended periods of rest after Euro 2020.
That means some youngsters have been working with the first team and in turn, some Under 18s have moved up too.
Talented teenager Owen Farmer, who plays for the Under 18s, has had the chance to show what he can do in front of Under 23s manager James Collins.
Collins told the club’s website he likes what he’s seen: “We did play against an Accrington XI last Tuesday and that was a huge challenge for us.
“Because we had a very young team – a mixture of young lads from my team and a few from Steve’s [Davis] under-18s. Owen Farmer scored the goal for us, and he’s a young lad I haven’t seen a lot of before this summer.
“But I’ve been really impressed with him in the last few weeks when we’ve been mixing the groups.
“This is the real plus when people are away, it gives young players the opportunity to show what they can do, and Owen is definitely someone who has caught my eye.”
Farmer is a forward who seems to have a bright future ahead of him.
When the Under 23s come back and things settle down again, it remains to be seen which age group he’ll slot into.
But there’s no harm in impressing the Under 23s manager when you get the chance as a teenager.
He just needs to keep on doing what he’s doing and the rewards will come.
