The relationship between Blue Square Bet North club Brackley Town and Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division…..
….outfit Leamington continues to blossom with the Saints signing prolific marksman Stefan Moore on dual registration.
Moore started his Brakes` career in style in the New Year`s Day derby with Bedworth United by netting a hat-trick in the 6-1 drubbing after leaving St Neots Town.
Moore, 29, began his career with Romulus before being signed by Aston Villa where he captained them to an FA Youth Cup final victory over Everton in 2002, alongside his younger brother Luke.
Having made his Football League debut during a loan spell at Chesterfield in 2001, Stefan scored on his Premier League debut for Villa against Charlton Athletic on the opening day of the 2002/03 campaign. A knee injury halted his progress at Villa Park, and he spent spells on loan at Milwall and Leicester City before a transfer to Queens Park Rangers in 2005.
After a three-year spell at Loftus Road which included a loan spell at Port Vale, he had a brief stint at Walsall before dropping into the non-League game with Kidderminster Harriers.
Moore really hit the goal trail during the 2009/10 season at Halesowen Town, where he was team mates with Liam Daly, Jamie Hood and Stefan Morley.
Claiming the Premier Division’s top scorer award with thirty-seven goals, he made the switch to St Neots who were at that time in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League, in October 2010.
In two seasons with the Saints he scored seventy-eight goals in eighty-three appearances and helped the club to back-to-back title successes, claiming the Southern League Central Division’s top scorer crown for himself last season.
He had scored ten goals for St Neots before leaving to move closer to his Midlands roots.
Earlier this month Brackley signed defenders Jamie Hood, Liam Daly and Stephan Morley and midfielder Richard Batchelor from Leamington all on similar terms.
