Darryl Lachman relishing Sky Bet Championship football with Sheffield Wednesday

26 June 2015

New Sheffield Wednesday recruit Darryl Lachman says he can't wait to get started in the Sky Bet Championship following his arrival from Dutch side FC Twente.

The defender joins the Owls on a two-year deal and brings international experience into the set-up at Hillsborough, having won four caps for Curacao.

The 25-year-old admits a move to England has been a long-term aspiration of his and he is already fully aware of the explosive nature of the Championship.

“I’ve always dreamed of playing in England so I’m really looking forward to playing for Sheffield Wednesday and in the Championship," he told

“The Championship excites me and the plans of the club going up higher makes me excited. I’ve always played in Holland and I want to try something different.

“Playing in a stadium like Hillsborough is new for me, you don’t see many stadiums like this in Holland.”

Lachman promises to bring an exciting style of play to Wednesday next season, and says he is anything but conservative in defence. 

“I’m a player that likes to play football, I like to take risks. I’m a confident player," he added.

“I am not the kind of player who kicks the ball into the stand, I like to keep the ball at my feet and play the game.

“I want to show that I am good enough to be a first choice and I am ready, waiting and excited to get started.”
