James Shan joins Owls coaching team

30 September 2022

Darren Moore has bolstered his backroom staff with the addition of first team coach James Shan.

Shan worked with Moore previously at West Brom, coaching the younger age groups before joining the first team staff at the Hawthorns.


In his career to date, the 43-year-old has also held the role of caretaker manager with the Baggies and Kidderminster Harriers, before taking the top job at Solihull Moors.

Shan’s most recent role was assistant manager with Rochdale and he now rejoins Moore in S6.

The Owls boss said: “Jimmy has come on board to supplement the first team squad as first team coach.


“He’ll be helping to prepare the team for training sessions in the week and on a matchday.

“Bringing Jimmy in allows me to divide up the squad in training sessions so we can work on specifics in small groups to develop team understanding, combination plays, relationships and other extra details.

“He understands how Jamie, Simon and I work, he’s someone I’ve worked with before. When I first started in my management career he was my assistant manager with West Brom in the Premier League.


“Now, the opportunity has presented itself to work together again.

“I’m really grateful the chairman has allowed us to bring him in, and on a day-to-day basis, he allows us to divide the team into smaller numbers and work the sessions in more detail.”
