Former AFC Wimbledon and Margate forward Luke Moore has signed for Ryman League Premier Division newcomers Dorking Wanderers.
The 29-year-old, who started his career at Ebbsfleet United, made more than 160 appearances for the Dons in a three-year spell, many of which came in League Two. During that time he scored 30 goals for the south-west Londoners.
Since leaving the Cherry Red Records Stadium, Moore has played for Margate, Billericay Town and Leatherhead. He has also played for England C.
And Moore is excited to be signing for Marc White’s Ryman Premier side.
“I feel the vision the management team have for the football club is something I want to be a part of,” Moore said.
“The way Marc was showing interest demonstrated how much he wanted me, and I want to be at a club at this stage of my career that is moving forward, playing good football and has that winning mentality.”
“Everything about Dorking Wanderers is telling you that it is moving forward. The playing staff are young and hungry and are only going to get better, and there is also the new ground to look forward to. Hopefully I can help with the progression of the club and be here for several years to come”.
And White believes the striker will add valuable higher league experience to the Wanderers’ attack.
“We’re absolutely delighted to sign a player of the stature of Luke Moore,” the manager said. “I’ve watched Luke play many times from the early part of his career at Ebbsfleet, and latterly at AFC Wimbledon, and he’s an exceptionally hard working player with an eye for goal, as well as a natural leader.
“I think it’s testament to how far the club has come off the field that we can attract a player of Luke’s pedigree, and once again it demonstrates the intentions we have regarding our progression”.
