Moore, 25, cuts ca­reer short due to in­juries

Gloucestershire Echo - - BRAIN TEASER -

FOR­MER Chel­tenham Town and Glouces­ter City striker Ethan Moore has re­tired from foot­ball at the age of 25.

He made the an­nounce­ment on Twit­ter af­ter suf­fer­ing two se­ri­ous in­juries in the last two years.

Moore missed the en­tire 2016/17 sea­son hav­ing just joined Glouces­ter when he rup­tured an an­te­rior lig­a­ment in his knee and he hasn’t played since suf­fer­ing a bad ACL in­jury while play­ing for Hart­pury Col­lege in March last year.

“What I’ve been through men­tally in the past six months, foot­ball is no longer for me,” he said.

“I wanna move away from foot­ball and try and find a new ca­reer. Just want to thank ev­ery­one who’s been in­volved in my ca­reer.”

A for­mer As­ton Villa and Southamp­ton youth player, Moore signed his first pro­fes­sional deal with Chel­tenham Town but was re­leased in Novem­ber 2011 without mak­ing a first team ap­pear­ance.

He fired Cin­der­ford Town to the South­ern League Di­vi­sion One South and West ti­tle in 2015/16 and had spells at Worces­ter City and Chel­tenham Saracens, while he spent time on loan at Eve­sham United when he was re­build­ing match fit­ness fol­low­ing his first bad in­jury.

Moore scored five goals in 18 ap­pear­ances for Glouces­ter be­fore leav­ing the club last sum­mer.
