Darlington make another signing
Darlington have tonight completed their second signing inside a week with a former winger returning to the club.
After leaving Spennymoor Town at the end of his contract, Chris Moore has rejoined Quakers where he has signed a two-year deal.
The 29-year-old first signed for the club in 2009-10 when they were in the Football League and also played in the Conference as well as at Wembley when Darlington won the FA Trophy in 2011.
He is Martin Gray’s second addition this week, following the arrival of Paul Robinson, who played alongside Moore at Whitley Bay.
The manager said: “With Chris Emms leaving due work commitments and the travelling involved next year, I’m delighted to be able to bring in another wide player so quickly.
“He’s played much higher up, he knows what the club is all about and I’m sure he will do very well.
“He’s been there and done it. He was a big player for Whitley Bay when they got to Wembley in the Vase and he also won there with Darlington.”
Moore lost two of his teeth after being on the wrong end of a challenge early on during Darlington’s Trophy win against Mansfield Town two years ago.
It turned out to be his final game for the club as then manager Mark Cooper released him and he joined Gateshead, spending a year at the International Stadium.
He was released last summer and joined another Conference club, Barrow, but he left midway through the campaign to join Moors.
Gray added: “I tried to bring him in last year, but he had a chance to join Barrow in the Conference. It didn’t work out there, but he’s direct and he has great pace so I’m sure he’ll be a big asset to us.”
