Darren Moore is the new manager of Sheffield Wednesday after leaving his previous role with League One club Doncaster Rovers

The 46-year-old will start with a home game against Rotherham in the Championship on Wednesday night.

Moore has 12 games to get the Owls out of the relegation zone in the Championship having started the season with a six-point deduction.

A statement from the club read: "Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to announce the appointment of Darren Moore as our new first team manager.

"The highly regarded 46-year-old brings an impressive CV to S6 on both sides of the white line.

"The erstwhile defender made 654 senior appearances for a raft of clubs as a player over two decades, representing Torquay, Doncaster, Bradford, Portsmouth, West Brom, Derby, Barnsley and Burton.

"He also posted three caps on the international stage for Jamaica."

Moore started life in management in April 2018 with West Brom on a caretaker basis and came close to saving the Baggies from Premier League relegation.

He moved to Doncaster in July 2019 and they were six points off the play-offs in League One with a game in hand before the season was brought to a halt by COVID-19.
