Sheffield Wednesday Youth’s Treble Saves The Mighty Imps

Vadaine Oliver is certainly following in the footsteps of one of his Sheffield Wednesday heroes. Having seen both play this season we can safely say the 21 year-old is a chip off the Jermaine Johnson aka  JJ’ block, albeit at a much lower level. For now at least. The two certainly have a similar swagger, the power, pace panache and energy that fills a fan with hope and expectation, gets you on your feet, as soon as the ball goes anywhere near them.  Vadaine has a long way to go to reach JJ’s quality, but he has the help of manager and Owls  fan Gary Simpson, not to mention 10 years to do it.

Since missing the Hillsborough cut in May, Vadaine Oliver’s debut season has certainly been IMPressive, cemented with a hat-trick at Hyde that banished the relegation worries for the Imps on the final day of the season.  Vadaine Oliver never lost  a header today, against two mean centre-halves who know all the tricks.  He scored three second half goals and had a hand in the all important penalty.  Young Oliver- in true Dickensian style the boy always wants more – won the header that put in Jones, only for him to be pushed for a 27th minute penalty.

On 48 Sheridan beats the offside, crosses superbly and Oliver uses his strength to power home a towering header.  On 62 minutes a Gray throw finds Oliver and his salmonlike leap sees him beat the keeper to the ball and head home. The deserved hat-trick and first matchball. On 86, Miller threads an intelligent ball, that Vadaine takes in his powerful thoroughbred stride to send him home to meet his maker, just inside the left hand post.

The Imps signed Vadaine as a free agent after the Owls released him in May. As a 20 year-old we would be entitled to a fee should the vultures come circling when the window opens in the summer.  He has said he wants to continue to work with Simmo, who he knows to have a pedigree in developing players at clubs and selling them on for million plus fees. We’ll be frying tonight in Lincoln then. lets throw the boat out and add some prawns.

Striker Returns To Strengthen Imps

The Imps are set to welcome back our steal from steel, as ex- Sheffield Wednesday striker, Vadaine Oliver, returns for tomorrows game at Braintree Town, after a three match ban for violent conduct.  Vadaine’s addition up front, alongside in-form Jamie Taylor, will be vital as the Imps go in search of another 3 point haul in our quest to achieve BSP safety. Keep the faith – one drum-one-voice-one passion

His 81st minute altercation with, Southport centre-half Neill Byrne, where he was pushed into the advertising hoardings, meant the sharp-eyed sharp-shooting ex-owl missed the Wrexham, Nuneaton and Telford games.  This limited the Imps options at vital times as 21-year-old Vadaine had been shouldering a big responsibility as he led the line superbly up front.  Thus far he has bagged 9 goals in a struggling side.

Save The Mighty Imps welcome back our contender for young player of the year.  As an aside a big thanks to Sheffield Wednesday for the free tickets to the Owls V Blackburn game on 6/4 – we will be honoured to do a match report, we’ll call it the Leppings view in honour of the cause
