Thompson appointed manager of under-23s

Neil Thompson has taken over as manager of the Wednesday under-23s following Lee Bullen’s move to become boss of Scottish Championship side Ayr United.

Thompson joined the Owls as part of Gary Megson’s coaching staff in 2011 and later managed the 23s before moving back into his role with the first team, including a spell as caretaker manager prior to Darren Moore’s appointment last year.
Speaking on the club website, Thompson said: “The link between the 23s and the first team is vital and I know the role very well. Some of the lads train with and play for the first team and it’s about managing that transition. I know the coaches, the players, the staff so the transition will be a smooth one.”
Moore said: “Neil knows the academy inside out and will give us that continuity which is really important. He’s an exceptional coach and person and I wish him all the very best in this key position at the club.”
