Graham Moore (born 7 March 1941 in Hengoed) is a Welsh former football player. During a 16 year playing career, he made over 400 appearances in The Football League, scoring 61 goals, and attained 21 caps for Wales.[1]

Early life

Born in Hengoed, as a child Moore attended Gilfach Primary and Bargoed Secondary schools. After leaving school he began working alongside his father and brother at Penallta Colliery.[2]

Club career

In 1956 Moore joined Bargoed YMCA, where he spent one year playing for the club's under-16 side before he was spotted by Cardiff City, joining the club along with team mates Tommy Mills and Graham Franklin. After playing for a year in the reserve side, he made his debut for the club at 17, scoring a last-minute equaliser in a 2–2 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in September 1958.[3] The following year, he made 41 league appearances, helping Cardiff win promotion to Division One. With Cardiff struggling financially,[2] Moore signed for Chelsea for £35,000 in December 1961, and helped the Blues win promotion to the First Division. He made 72 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 14 goals. In 1963 he was sold to Manchester United for £35,000.

His time at United was hampered by injuries, and he left the club a year later having made just 18 league appearances. Moore then joined Northampton Town, playing for the club in their only top-flight season, before enjoying spells with Charlton Athletic and Doncaster Rovers.

International career

Moore made his debut for Wales at the age of 19 on 17 October 1959 in a 1–1 draw with England, scoring Wales' goal.[4] He went on to win a total of 21 caps.
