Following a two-year spell with the Glovers, Moore spent a brief period in Norway with Viking FK before moving to Forest Green Rovers in 2016.

A loan spell with Torquay United followed and Moore impressed at Plainmoor, securing a move to Ipswich Town as a result.

Moore’s professional career was kickstarted by a loan to Rotherham in July 2017, as he scored 13 goals and made five assists in 24 appearances, prompting Barnsley to add him to their squad in January 2018.

Since his move to Oakwell, he's scored 23 times in 55 appearances, being named in the PFA League One Team of the Year last season as the Tykes won promotion to the Championship.
