Moore looks ahead after Tribes move

FORMER Manchester City man Karl Moore hopes that a move to Galway United can get his career moving.

The Dubliner spent the second half of last season with UCD and he had hoped to go back to England but a move to Yeovil Town was held up by red tape so he's decided to remain in the League of Ireland and signed a one-year deal with Galway.

"I'm 22 now and I need to be playing regularly so this is a big season for me and Galway is the right club to join," says Moore, capped four times at U21 level.

"I still have ambitions of playing in England again and hopefully I can do that but for now I need to concentrate on doing well for Galway. I haven't played that many games in my career and at this stage of my career I need to be playing so hopefully I can do that with Galway United.

"I only signed the other day, the season is very close to starting and we don't have much time to build a squad but Sean Connor has a good eye for players and hopefully we can get a few more bodies in."

Galway also signed former Sligo Rovers man Steve Feeney and re-signed Stephen Walsh, Gary Curran, Paul Sinnott and Shane Keogh.

Limerick's place in Division One for the 2011 season was confirmed with the news that the Munster outfit had been granted a First Division licence for the new season.

Bohemians drew 1-1 with First Division side Longford Town in a pre-season friendly last night while Derry City defeated Institute 7-0, with David McDaid scoring four for City.
