Moore calls for togetherness in battle against relegation

New manager Darren Moore has called for unity between club and fans as he sets about the task of trying to steer us to Championship survival.

There has been mounting criticism from some supporters in recent weeks, aimed at the chairman and players, but Moore said after his appointment today: “I’m here to express my honour at managing this wonderful club. It’s a huge a challenge, what I will say to everyone is, what has gone has gone and we all need to come together. I’m calling on the fans, we need unity, let’s look forward as one. Let’s join forces.”

He went on: “We come here now and my message is clear to the supporters and community … get behind us, get behind the team. We know it’s a tough task but we will work hard, we will give everything. We need hard work from everybody.”

Moore, who took charge of training this morning with assistant Jamie Smith and first team coach, Paul Williams, will be in charge of his first game in the ‘must-win’ basement battle with Rotherham at Hillsborough on Wednesday evening.

He said: “I am ready to get started and I will be in the dugout on Wednesday. To join this wonderful club, it’s what you’re in the business for – to challenge yourself. I see good players, people and staff around me. I’m really excited to be here.”

Moore added: “The chairman identified me as a candidate to lead the club and take the club forward. It’s an excellent club, and the opportunity was too much to resist.
“I want to give Sheffield Wednesday every ounce of myself and get started as quickly as possible.
“I’m just being me, I am working honestly and openly. Hopefully people have seen things in me that can help bring everyone together. There are many aspects that must come together, as well as the team on the pitch, to be successful and that’s what our focus will be on.”
