Leatherhead have signed striker Luke Moore from Ryman League Premier Division rivals Billericay Town.

Experienced 28-year-old Moore joined Billericay in November 2016 from Vanarama National League South side Margate.

Gravesend-born Moore began his career in the youth set-up at Ebbsfleet United before progressing to the first-team where he was a regular for three seasons, scoring 20 goals in 124 appearances.

He was part of the Fleet squad which beat Torquay United 1-0 to lift the FA Trophy at Wembley in 2008, but the following year he joined AFC Wimbledon, who he helped win promotion to the Football League courtesy of a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Luton in the 2011 Conference Promotion Final.

Moore’s five years with the Dons saw him score 32 times in around 160 games and on his release he was signed by Margate in May 2014 by Terry Brown, who had also been his boss at Wimbledon.

He was part of the Gate team which won promotion to Conference (National League) South in May 2015 and only this summer he agreed a new one-year deal.

He has been capped by England C, scoring on his debut.
