Demanding division

1 June 2022

Darren Moore is looking forward to the 2022/23 campaign with pre-season preparations well underway at Hillsborough.

The Owls boss believes League One will be as demanding as ever, with several clubs aiming for promotion to the Championship.

Speaking exclusively to, Moore said: “League One has respect for nobody, it’s a demanding and challenging division and there’s lots of variation in terms of how teams set up and play.


“When you look at the top teams from last season, we all have different styles and there’s no right or wrong way for success in this league.

“Last season, there were eight former Premier League teams in the division, it shows the stature of clubs in League One.

“But reputations hold no bearing, you have to perform. Only three can get promoted and there’s no God-given right for the former Premier League clubs to succeed.


“It’s a very entertaining league and you only had to see our fixtures against Sunderland in terms of the national interest surrounding those matches. It bodes well for another exciting and tough campaign, and we need to be prepared.”

Last week, Moore confirmed transfer discussions were happening in the background in S6, and the Wednesday manager is enjoying this period of planning for next season.

He added: “The planning is the exciting bit!


“We’ll look at the fixtures when they come out and when the players come back the competition starts. They all want to play and I wouldn’t have it any other way, that’s how it should be.

“We look forward to it but there’s a lot of work before we even get to that point, in terms of getting the right blend and right type of players to move us forward, to give us more cutting edge and balance throughout the team.”
