Darren Moore departs Sheffield Wednesday

Darren Moore has left his position as Sheffield Wednesday manager a few weeks after leading them into the Championship.

The 49-year-old led the Owls to a 1-0 extratime win over Barnsley in the League One play-off final last month but is remembered for the epic comeback in the semi-finals where Sheffield overturned a 4-0 first leg loss over Peterborough United to win the return leg 5-1 and ultimately 5-3 on penalties.

Moore and his entire backroom staff have now left Hillsborough with Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri stating: “Both parties believe that now is the right time we go our separate ways.

“The journey of Sheffield Wednesday with Darren has been in many ways unique and always as a team. In the football industry, journeys come to an end and now is that time, which we both agree.

“The mutual respect we have for each other is immense on a personal and professional basis and I offer my sincere thanks for the dedication and commitment Darren has given to our club.”

Moore previously managed at West Bromwich Albion and Doncaster Rovers before joining Sheffield Wednesday in 2021.

He was Jamaican international during his playing days, featuring for eight different clubs across the English Football League system, including Doncaster, West Brom, Portsmouth, Derby County and Barnsley.
