Adem Poric (born 22 April 1973 in London, England) is a former Australian professional footballer, most famous for playing for Sheffield Wednesday.


During the 1991-92 season he had an unsuccessful trial at Arsenal, playing in three reserve team games. Sheffield Wednesday signed Poric for £60,000 from St George Saints on 1 October 1993. He found it difficult to break into the first team at Hillsborough and loan spells at Southend United and Rotherham United followed. He made just 13 league appearances in two seasons for the Owls, then a Premier League side, under Trevor Francis.

He eventually joined Notts County on a free transfer on 27 March 1998. He had not appeared in a competitive game for Sheffield Wednesday for almost three years by this stage, his last appearance coming as a substitute against Manchester United in a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in the league on 7 May 1995.


He represented Australia at youth level.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Poric has returned to Australia where he is involved in running the Total Football Academy. The Academy has developed links to Sheffield Wednesday[2] with the first of an anticipated influx of academy players coming to Hillsborough in September 2008.
