He remained with Glossop, then playing in the Football League Second Division for two seasons before moving to Derby County of the First Division for a fee of £1,500 in October 1913. Although Derby were relegated at the end of Moores's first season with the club, they bounced back and returned as champions in 1915. By this time, however, the First World War had broken out and football was suspended until 1919.
In May 1923, Moore was called up to the England team for a tour of Sweden and was one of six débutantes selected for the match against Sweden on 21 May. Although Moore scored in a 4–2 victory, he lost his place for the next game to his namesake, Billy Moore of West Ham United; neither Moore was selected for England again. At the time of his solitary England appearance, Moore was aged 34 years and 11 days.
Moore remained at Derby County until March 1926, helping the club to regain their First Division status, before joining Chesterfield where he spent a season. He then made a few appearances in non-league football for Mansfield Town before winding up his career at Worcester City.
