Sheffield Wednesday winger Adam Reach has been voted by you as the 35th best player in the EFL.
Over the last month, we have been gathering votes from you to find the best managers and players in the EFL. And after counting the votes, we have discovered you think that Reach is the 35th best player in the Football League. This is the first time that he has been on this list.
Interestingly, Reach’s form has been inverse to Sheffield Wednesday’s. He signed in 2016 but while the Owls qualified for the Sky Bet Championship play-offs that season, not many would say that was down to Reach who struggled to adjust. Being a club record signing can lead to a lot of pressure being on your shoulders and that seemed to weigh him down.
This season, Wednesday didn’t do as well as they stumbled into mid-table mediocrity. However one thing that Owls fans could enjoy was how well Reach was playing. In every game he was usually the bright spot, especially in the first half of the season when not many in the team was playing very well. He was a creative force, making 11 assists and scored four goals. And those goals tended to be crackers that will feature on compilations for years to come. He was the best player on the pitch in games against Aston Villa, Barnsley and Nottingham Forest and plenty of other teams won’t be wanting to face him next year.
Reach will hope to get Wednesday back into the play-offs next year.
