Alan Moore
Moore, who suffered with a series of injuries during his time at Turf Moor, left the Clarets in the summer of 2004 and returned to his native Ireland to play for Shelbourne. He played in the Champions League for the Shels but from there he moved again to play for Derry City.

In February of this year he signed for Sligo Rovers, managed by former Claret and former Burnley team mate Paul Cook, in readiness for the new Eircom League season and he was in the starting line up for the first game of the season a 3-1 away defeat against St. Patrick's Athletic.

He's been in and out of the side since, often used as a substitute, because of injury although he was involved in one amazing incident in the 3-2 home win against Shamrock Rovers at the beginning of May. Moore was an unused substitute that day but found himself the centre of attention when he was struck by Shamrock full back Patrick Flynn whilst warming up on the touchline. The incident led to Flynn receiving a red card.

Yesterday it was reported that the 33-year-old Moore had left Sligo after his appearances had been curtailed by injury.
