Alan Moore, born November 25, 1974 in Dublin, Ireland is a retired Irish footballer.

Club career[edit]

Moore moved to Derry City after a short spell without a club as he had left Shelbourne in January, 2007 when his contract was up.

His previous clubs included Burnley, Barnsley and Middlesbrough. During his time at Middlesbrough, he was once described as "the Ryan Giggs of the north-east".

Moore returned home to Ireland during the summer of 2004 and signed for Shelbourne where he had an immediate impact on the team. In the UEFA Champions League qualifiers he scored away to KR Reykjavik to help secure a 2–2 draw that would see the team progress on away goals and in the Second Round he scored a hat trick at home and scored away against Hajduk Split who Shelbourne knocked out 4–3 on aggregate. Shelbourne were eventually knocked out by Deportivo La Coruña in the last round before the group stages.

By the end of 2004, Moore had helped Shelbourne retain the League of Ireland Premier Division title for the first time. In 2006, Moore won another League of Ireland championship medal as the Dublin side pipped Derry City to the title on goal difference.

Despite this, however, on the 5 March 2007, Moore signed for Derry City to work with his former manager, Pat Fenlon once again.[1]

However he failed to settle at Derry City and he signed for Sligo Rovers in February 2008 [1]
