Chairman’s hopes for the future …

Chairman Dejphon Chansiri has spoken of his hopes for next season after the disappointment of this campaign.

In part of a statement on the club website, Mr Chansiri (pictured presenting farewell presents to Ross Wallace and Glenn Loovens after the Norwich game) said: ‘I would like to begin by saying a big thank you to all our fans for another year of amazing support and dedication.

The season did not go the way that we planned, reasons for which have been well documented, but we must now look forward in a positive way in the short and long term.

On that note, it has given me a lot of pride to see some of our young players step up from the under-23s and into the first team. They have done themselves proud, helping the team through a period of uncertainty when many of their senior colleagues were unable to play.

We now look forward to a summer of preparation to ensure we try to challenge at the top part of the table next season.

 

As always, the one thing I can promise is that we will do our very best at every level of the club. We have made positive moves behind the scenes to ensure we continually improve the foundations of our club.

Finally, I will conclude this statement where I began. The love you all have for Sheffield Wednesday is the bedrock of our club. To have the ability to call on your level of support makes us the envy of many of our peers and only drives my passion to bring sustained success to Hillsborough. I say thank you to you all and also to our dedicated staff who work so hard day in and day out.’
