Darren Moore is expected to appoint Paul Williams into his Sheffield Wednesday technical team.

Moore was confirmed as Tony Pulis’ replacement at Hillsborough earlier this morning, taking over the reins from Neil Thompson after he held the fort for over two months.

The Star understands that Thompson is set to remain part of the Wednesday first team as things stand, while his interim assistants, Lee Bullen and Steve Haslam, will return to their duties among the youth setup at Hillsborough.

Doncaster Rovers, who said they were ‘disappointed’ by their former manager’s exit, also confirmed that Jamie Smith had left, and it’s thought that he will be appointed as part of his Moore’s technical team at S6 as they take their place on the bench against Rotherham United on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, The Star is also led to believe that former Norwich City U18s head coach, Paul Williams is also set to join Moore at Hillsborough to work alongside Moore, Richie and Thompson in an attempt to take the Owls forward.

Williams made his name playing for Derby County and Coventry City amongst others during his playing days, and will no doubt be a welcome addition to the setup at Middlewood Road.

Moore is expected to meet the media in a couple of hours following on from his first training session where he met the players that he’ll be hoping can keep the Owls in the Championship for next season.

Wednesday face Rotherham at 7.45pm on Wednesday evening.
