Biography

Since signing for Motherwell in the summer of 2015 Louis Moult has become one of the most deadly strikers in the Scottish game.

A product of the Stoke City youth academy Louis made his Potters debut on 26th August ’09 against Leyton Orient.

Moult would leave his home-town club in 2012 though not before making a single English Premier League appearance and Bradford City, Mansfield Town (twice), Accrington and Alfreton Town.

After leaving Stoke in 2012 the striker signed for Northampton Town on a one year deal. In February ’13 Louis went on loan to Nuneaton and it was here that his career would be kick-started.

A modest return with Boro didn’t deter the non-league side from snapping Moult up when his Northampton contract expired. Their faith was duly rewarded as Louis found his shooting boots and blasted home 17 goals in what would be his only full campaign with the Liberty Way side.

Attracted by the opportunity of linking up with former Nuneaton manager, Kevin Wilkin, at Wrexham Moult signed for the Welsh side in the summer of 2014.

Continuing where he left off at Nuneaton Louis found the net 16 times during his first season with the Dragons attracting the attention of Motherwell.

Signed for an undisclosed fee by Ian Baraclough Louis made his ‘Well bow as a substitute in 1-0 win over Inverness on 01 August ’15.

Taking advantage of an injury to Wes Fletcher Louis assumed the striking role and netted his first Motherwell goal later in the month away to St Johnstone.

It was the first of four goals in four games as the Englishman began to find his feet in the Scottish Premiership.

Perhaps his most notable feat in his first term at Fir Park was to net twice in a memorable come-from-behind victory over Celtic at Parkhead brought.

Despite being troubled by a niggling groin injury Louis ended his first season at Fir Park with an impressive 18 league and cup goals to his name.

With his injury failing to clear up as hoped Louis went under the knife in July ’16 and missed much of the opening stages of the 16’17 campaign. His return however was something to behold.  Netting an equaliser off the bench against Ross County on 10 September ’16 the following Saturday he single handedly destroyed local rivals Hamilton Accies by netting all four goals in a 4-2 win. In fact but for a wrongly disallowed goal it should have been five!

Moult continued to be something of a scourge to the South Lanarkshire side going on to net an injury-time leveller in the Hogmanay derby and the winner in the crucial relegation crunch with just three games remaining.

Despite a season of struggle for ‘Well, Louis once again matched his tally of 18 league and cup goals for the club.

Incredibly the only opponent the striker the striker has failed to score against in a competitive match since joining Motherwell is Berwick Rangers, who ‘Well faced in the recent Betfred Cup tie.
