Moore signs extended deal
Motherwell Football Club are delighted to confirm young striker Craig Moore has signed a new two-year contract at the club.
Although yet to make his full debut for the first-team, Moore has impressed both for the Under 20s this year and on-loan at Cowdenbeath, where has netted four in four starts.
That figure would have been even more impressive but for fog, after the Blue Brazil’s match with Partick Thistle was abandoned twenty minutes from time with Moore already on a brace.
Moore has appeared on the bench for Stuart McCall’s side back in November but was an unused sub in the 2-1 win at Tannadice.
He did appear in the pre-season friendly against Raith Rovers at Starks Park and impressed despite such a short time on the pitch.
The 18-year old will spent the rest of the season at Central Park and will return in the summer hoping to push for a spot in the first-team for 2013/14.
His new contract ties him to Fir Park until the summer of 2015.
Speaking exclusively to motherwellfc.co.uk, Moore said: “I am pleased with how this this season has gone so far, and signing this contact is the icing on the cake.
“I really enjoyed playing for Jonathan Johansson with the Under 20s and although the results weren’t going for us, I could feel the benefit of coming up against some experienced opponents.
“Going on loan has also proved a great experience; I enjoy competitive football with Cowdenbeath every weekend.
“With my future sorted, I am looking forward to the next few years. I will work as hard as I can to try and win a spot in the first-team squad then we’ll take it from there.”
