Experienced wingman Byron Moore became Rovers’ second signing of the 2016 close season, as the side looked to establish itself in League One.
His career had begun with an August 2007 Crewe début against Brighton, before he scored seven times in 15 Northern Premier League matches at Kidsgrove.
Thereafter, despite relegation from League One in 2008/09, he accumulated a large number of League appearances with Alexandra, playing alongside Steve Phillips, Billy Bodin and Nathan Ellington and appearing against Rovers in five League fixtures.
The 2010/11 season had offered a range of odd scores in the League, Moore playing as Crewe beat Barnet 7-0 that August and Cheltenham Town 8-1 in April, as well as scoring in the 5-5 draw at Chesterfield that October.
An apparent paucity of goals preceded contributing the second at Wembley in May 2012, as Cheltenham Town were defeated in the League Two play off final. He also added two assists at the same venue, as Southend United were defeated 2-0 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final in April 2013 and scored two first half goals in the League encounter at home to Swindon Town that campaign.
In two seasons with Port Vale, he contributed four goals in 51 games.
