Veth: Pacific Sign Trinidad and Tobago Striker Reon Moore
Transfermark’s Manuel Veth looks to have cracked one of Pacific FC’s first signing of the new year, stating that the Vancouver Isle-based club has come to terms with Trinidad and Tobago international Reon Moore.
The 27-year-old striker looks set for Starlight Stadium following his second spell with Trinidad and Tobago top flight side Defence Force FC, for whom his form in the Concacaf Caribbean Cup turned heads: he scored back-to-back goals against Jamaica’s Cavalier FC and Martinique’s Golden Lions FC before adding an assist against fellow T&T side AC Port of Spain last fall. Despite his strong form over for four games, however, his club would fail to progress out of Group A.
Moore is also an established presence within the Trinidad and Tobago national team, tallying a healthy return of eight goals in 25 appearances for the Soca Warriors. The centre forward displaying some exceptionally good form in the fall, tallying two assists in Nations League A before scoring the first goal in Trinidad and Tobago’s 2-1 quarter-final comeback win over the USA.
Moore’s professional career began with with hometown side North East Stars before a move to Matura ReUnited came the following year. He then enjoyed five fruitful years with Defence Force before testing himself internationally with Guatemalan side Municipal in 2022, but with no goals coming there he returned to Defence Force last year and has clearly found his footing in the time since.
Veth has been covering the CPL offseason closely: he recently reported that multiple CPL sides were chasing Canadian international Frank Sturing, while also reporting that the Halifax Wanderers had signed Italian midfielder Giorgio Probo.
Moore wouldn’t be the only Trinidad and Tobago international in Canada’s top flight, with Wanderers captain Andre Rampersad recently breaking through the team, along with Atletico Ottawa forward Malcom Shaw – though the league once played host to the likes of Ryan Telfer, Kareem Moses, and Federico Pena, too.
