Stranraer and legend Moore to part company

Stranraer legend Michael Moore will call time on his career at Stair Park at the end of the season and the club are hoping that he has does not reach a 300 game landmark before he goes.

Moore has played for the Blues on three separate occasions in a career that started at Hamilton Accies back in 1998 and has also had stops at St. Johnstone, Ayr United and Dumbarton and at the moment he has played 297 games and scored 94 times for Stephen Aitken’s side.

A win in their last League game over Stenhousemuir on Saturday would see Stranraer avoid the relegation Play-Offs and leave Moore two games away from the 300 game mark and long serving committee member Shaun Niven is hoping that the 32-year-old club hero falls short.

Niven explained: “Michael is looking to move on as he has not played as much football this season as he would have liked. I have seen nearly all his 297 games for us and he has been a wonderfully committed player. I would like to thank him for all that he has done.”

“It would have been nice if he stayed on and got to over the 300 games mark next season, however hopefully he will help us to safety and not pass it because we are in the Play-Offs.”
