PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Darren Moore has issued a passionate plea to Sheffield Wednesday supporters to respect players who decide to take the knee on the pitch. A section of Owls fans booed Shrewsbury Town's players when they took the knee near the centre circle ahead of last Saturday's League One fixture at Hillsborough. Owls boss Moore said: "I do remember the incident last week. While I can understand there was a bit of confusion with the players lining up in a line and that it looked a delayed taking of the knee and the way some of our fans could have seen it, I'm addressing this as we have had a lot of Sheffield Wednesday fans call and write into the club (this week) and show their disappointment. "I was obviously disappointed at the time to hear it. What we have got to remember is the taking of the knee is a stance for everybody. It's an equality purpose worldwide.

It is something that is going on worldwide and will continue. "Shrewsbury's players have continued to take the knee and our players have chosen not to do it this season. It has been an approach by the players as one as a group. That's not to stop the Shrewsbury players doing it and they went ahead and wanted to take the knee. "All I would say is we have got to use last week as an educational purpose. I'm not patronising anyone by any shape or means. The taking of the knee is a stance clubs are taking each to their own. Shrewsbury chose to do it last week and we didn't. "I'm not saying all fans should agree with it but what we don't want as a club is to be showing boos as our disapproval of it. What it does is paint a picture against Sheffield Wednesday that's not us. "We are a wonderful, historic club. We are a community football club that is recognised for its wonderful fan base and the tremendous support that we have.

. We are a fantastic football club and we want to be remembered for those positive things that we are. "We don't want to be remembered for a section of our fans booing the taking of a knee for five or six seconds. We want to be spoken about as a huge club with the wonderful fan base that we have and all the magical memories that we have had here at Hillsborough and will continue to have here. "England are playing at 7 o'clock tonight and will be taking the knee and we will be supporting them. It is no different to what happened last week and could potentially be having to other teams. "What we want to do is make Hillsborough a respected place, no matter whether a team takes the knee, stand in a circle or drop a knee in an individual place before kick-off. "To boo them (Shrewsbury players) and show our disapproval with boos paints the club in a wrong picture. We have got a fantastic fan base that is part of a community as well. We along with fans and other people take a unified stance with it. "Equality is for all; it is right across the board. It doesn't matter what skin colour, nationality or religion you are. It (football) is for everybody. "We want to be remembered as a fantastic football club and not be painted with negative connotations. I don't stand alone. We have had a lot of Sheffield Wednesday fans ring in and write in about their disappointment in terms of the boos. "Let's turn it around. Let's stick together. We have got targets and aims this season and to get those targets and aims we have to be together going forward. "That's my message to the supporters and hopefully last week was just a minor confusion."
