Bucks Ask for Moore

Do you want more?

Then we’ll give you Moore.

We are pleased to confirm that Byron Moore will return as a Buck for the 2024/25 season.

Byron, who celebrates his 36th birthday in August, becomes the thirteenth player to agree terms with manager Kevin Wilkin this close season.

Injury prevented Byron from participating in last season’s playoff campaign, a disappointing conclusion to a campaign where the vastly experienced Potteries-based player made a notable contribution.

Byron’s calmness in possession aided the Bucks’ game management, and his eye for an opportunity brought him several vital goals. He secured three points with a calmly-taken winner at home to Barwell in December and opened the scoring with a Southern League ‘Goal of the Week’ winner in March’s 2-0 victory at Alvechurch.

Speaking about Byron, Bucks manager Wilkin said:

“I’m delighted to have Byron return. He is probably one of the quieter members of the group, but he gets a lot of respect from the lads, and we missed his experience when he missed games with injury last season.”

“He lives the right way when he’s away from the football club and knows his body and how to manage the load on it, which is important, and he’s someone the lads, especially the younger lads, can learn from.”

Byron was perhaps a surprise retention for some fans when the Bucks experienced relegation at the end of the 2022/23 season; however, Kevin understood what he could bring to the side, as he explained:

“Byron looks after the ball well, and if you’re going to be successful and win matches, the more players who can do that, the better. He knows when to play and in which areas, and players like Remi Walker can only benefit from playing with him.”

The quietly influential midfielder will also have his 100th appearance for the club in his sights when the season kicks off on 10th August.

Since signing for the club in February 2022, Byron has represented the Bucks across three seasons, and his fourth season is likely to see him reach three figures.

He is the club’s second-longest serving player, after Jordan Piggott, and both are on target to become Bucks centurions in the forthcoming campaign.

Welcome back, Byron!
