Kevin John Moore (born 30 January 1956) is an English retired professional footballer, who played as a winger.

After making 38 Football League appearances for Blackpool between 1974 and 1977, scoring three goals in the process, followed by a loan spell at Bury, Moore joined Newport County in 1978. Between 1978 and 1983 Moore made 148 appearances for Newport, scoring fourteen goals during the most successful period in the club's long history. Moore was part of the team that won promotion and the Welsh Cup, and in the subsequent season reached the quarter-final of the 1981 European Cup Winners Cup.

In 1983, he had a brief loan spell at Swindon Town, but only made one appearance before joining Swansea City.[1]
