Simon Moore joined the Sky Blues in July 2021 on a three-year contract after half a decade in the Steel City with Sheffield United.

Hailing from Sandown, Moore is one of only two footballers from the Isle of Wight to play in the Premier League but would make his professional debut for Brentford in the third tier as a second half substitute for Wojciech Szczesny in 2010.

2012/13 would prove to be Moore’s breakout season as he played 52 times for the West London club as they reached the League One Play Off Final.

That summer Moore would head to Wales to newly promoted Premier League side Cardiff City, where he would spend time on loan across the Severn at Bristol City, before returning to the Cardiff City Stadium to make 25 appearances for the Bluebirds before returning across the border permanently to sign for Sheffield United.

Moore would make 70 appearances between the sticks for the Blades, earning himself a place in the League One Team of the Year, as the Blades stormed to the title in 2016/17 before playing his part as they reestablished themselves in the second tier.

The next season would see the South Yorkshire outfit return to the Premier League and it was here where Moore would make his Premier League bow against Manchester United before departing the following summer for Coventry.
