Orlando Pride sign Jade Moore from Reading
Orlando Pride have announced the signing of Jade Moore from Reading.
Moore joins the Pride ahead of the 2020 National Women’s Soccer League season on a one-year contract with an option for an additional year.
Orlando manager Marc Skinner told the club website “She possesses a great skill to travel quickly in small spaces, control the pace of the game and her ability to, not only read the game well, but destroy attacks before they start will bring a much needed dynamic to our midfield.
We’re very excited to bring her into the Club and look forward to seeing her in purple when we get back to play.
On her new adventure Moore said “I think one of the biggest things for me is that this is a fresh challenge, a new league. Obviously, back in the UK I’ve played in the league for over a decade and you kind of get used to the same things, the same teams, the same player pool.
So I’m really excited about that, coming overseas, and taking me out of my comfort zone to play against different players and play against the best players in the world”.
“When this came about it ticked every single box of what I wanted at the next part of my career.”
Moore made a total of 54 appearances for the Royals since joining in 2017, including 14 this season in the Women’s Super League, scoring 4 goals and adding 2 assists in the process.
She has 50 caps for England and was part of the side that won the Bronze Medal in the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
She has already worked under the Guidance of Orlando boss Skinner at Birmingham City as she helped the Blues lift the FA Cup in 2012.
