Moore signs on at Stadium MK

Goalkeeper the latest through the Stadium MK doors...

2 August 2018

MK Dons have further bolstered their squad ahead of the 2018/19 season, with the signing of goalkeeper Stuart Moore.

Moore, 23, moves to Stadium MK from Sky Bet League Two side Swindon Town. As an out of contract under-24 player, the Robins are due compensation and the two clubs are currently in dialogue regarding an appropriate settlement. 

The goalkeeper becomes Paul Tisdale’s 10th capture of the summer.

“I’m very pleased to be here,” Moore told iFollow MK Dons: “It’s nice to get it done before the season starts and now I’m very much looking forward to getting going.

“Everyone knows that MK Dons is a massive Club and it’s great to be a part of that. Speaking to the manager and to Mel [Gwinnett] about the ambition of the club and hunger to do well and succeed - I want to be part of that.

“I’ve met the goalkeepers here and they seem really good lads and are two good goalkeepers. I know we are going to push each other and competition is always good.”

Moore began his career with Portsmouth but later moved to Reading’s Academy, later signing professional terms with the Royals.

The 6ft 2in stopper, brother of Sheffield United’s Simon Moore, gained plenty of first-team experience courtesy of various loan spells, including two stints with EFL clubs Peterborough United and Luton Town.

Moore moved permanently to Barrow in July 2017 before signing with Swindon Town midway through last season.

First Team Coach Mel Gwinnett said of the new goalkeeper: “Stuart is a young keeper that I first became aware of during my time at Exeter City. The thing that struck me with him was how positive he was off his line and how he liked to dominate his box. 

“He’s very competent and is a keeper that, at the age of 23, can only develop and improve.”
