Double Wembley winner will always be fondly remembered
Crewe Alexandra’s longest serving player Byron Moore will be moving to pastures new this summer after informing the club that he wishes to pursue a new challenge after almost a decade here with us. The Stoke-on-Trent born winger scored 33 goals in 297 appearances for the club and was a double Wembley winner after helping us to victory in the League Two play-off final against Cheltenham Town in 2012 and then in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final against Southend almost a year later.
Moore’s most memorable moment in a Crewe Alexandra shirt was scoring the second goal in the 2-0 win over Cheltenham Town at Wembley, a result that sealed our return to League One. Moore enjoyed his best season in terms of goals during our promotion winning season, scoring ten goals.
Moore has played under four different managers at Crewe Alexandra, making his debut way back in August 2007 at home to Brighton and Hove Albion – the occasion marked Steve Holland’s first game in charge of the club after succeeding Dario Gradi.
Moore, 25 continued to be a regular in the side under every manager and in his final season with the club he scored four goals in 45 appearances.
Everyone at the Football Club would like to wish Byron every success in the future.
