He was named player of the year for the 2011 season and went on to make over 160 appearances for the Dons.
He then moved onto Leyton Orient making thirty-four appearances.
Moore will be joined by Jack Midson as assistant-manager.
Midson has also enjoyed a very successful career and along with Moore, played over 120 times for AFC Wimbledon and seventy-nine times for Eastleigh before moving to Leatherhead with Moore and forming a formidable team on and off the pitch.
