Today Limerick FC have announced the signing of Jordan Moore for the 2016 season
The former Dundee United, Queens Park and Dunfermline has signed a deal with Martin Russell’s men after impressing in a pre-season friendly against Cork City in which he had a strong performance and a goal ruled out for offside.
In 2014, Glaswegian born Moore announced that he had been having treatment for Skin Cancer and thankfully he also beat the cancer as he announced his return to football in May 2014.
Since then he has battled to get back to full fitness and was on loan from Dundee United at clubs such as Dunfermline and Queens Park but just before Christmas Moore was told Dundee United would not be renewing his contract.
A former team mate of Moore’s at Dundee United Jon Daly reached out to David Crennell to see if there would be any opportunities in Ireland for Moore and with that Pat Sullivan (Owner of Limerick FC) & Martin Russell wanted to set up a meeting with Moore and see about arranging a trial.
Sullivan & Russell were notably impressed by Moore and offered him a one year deal.
Sullivan stated that ‘The Limerick ethos is that they are always willing to offer opportunities’
‘Moore stood out as a player that can help Limerick reach their goals so we are delighted to have signed him’.
He was presented with a special merit award by PFA Scotland in recognition of his recovery from the disease at the end of last season.
