BOHEMIANS CONFIRMED THEIR 23rd squad member for the upcoming 2018 SSE Airtricity League campaign on Thursday with the return of winger Karl Moore.

The player spent four seasons in Phibsborough between 2012 and 2015, making 105 appearances before departing to join Bray Wanderers.

Moore grew up as a Gypsies supporter and spent time at St Kevin’s Boys before enjoying six years at Manchester City, moving to Eastlands aged 16.

“Karl coming back to the club is a really good signing for us,” said Bohemians boss Keith Long.

“He’s a player with bags of ability and he’s returning to us more experienced now after two good seasons with Bray.”

Moore made 56 appearances during three seasons at the Carlisle Grounds, with Bray finishing two places outside of a European position during a controversial campaign in 2017.

Manager Long took over from Owen Heary at Dalymount Park just as Moore was leaving towards the end of the 2014 campaign.

He said the versatile forward would add to a strong squad as his side aim to build on a promising year which culminated in a fifth place finish last season.

Long said: “He can play on either flank but he’s been equally as good at left-back for Bray too.

“We believe he can reproduce that form here and that we can rely on his experience to help bring some of our younger players through too.

“We’re starting pre-season on December 28 and I’m looking forward to working with Karl again.”

Moore’s arrival comes a day after ex-UCD striker Ryan Swan joined the Dublin club having spent last season at Cabinteely.
