Well, that will make Exeter harder to score against. I'd hoped he'd return to TNL

It’s a strange one- I can only assume we didn’t offer him a contract.
The next goalie signing will be a big indicator

similarly would have readily been very pleased to see him be signed for FGR .

i think he will only get better-and would have thought he was in the mould of the type and age of player MC and FGR want to have in the squad.

very good goalkeeper imo-missed opportunity as has alreadt been posted

not quite a done deal yet-but very close :

KMB most likely to be Wayne Rooneys strike partner in the MLS next season .

1 goal in 16 appearances for Newport last season, spent most of the time warming the bench. He must have a very good agent if this is true. The MLS isn't that bad surely?

Good snatch there. I always thought he was rock solid when called upon as a damage limitation sub.

Whenever i saw him, i thought he gave 100% and made an impact on the game when appearing as a substitute.Sorry to lose him, but realise the way to move on in life.

I see Jonny Maxted has joined Exeter from Accrington. Good competition for Lewis Ward.

Exeter look as though they are going to be making another serious bid for promotion this season.

Championship sides Millwall and Bristol City will compete to sign Barnsley's 26-year-old English striker Kieffer Moore, with both clubs preparing £3m offers.

Definitely a player we should have been patient with

Kieffer or Christian?

Must admit, I always felt Kieffer had more dangerous talents - speed and height will always make you hard to contain at any level provided your finishing is up to standard. That is the area of his game that has improved the most since FGR. But would Keiffer have accumulated the vital tally of goals that Christian notched and with them promotion from NL and survival in EFL2? We'll never know!

Mind you, the Kieffer sell on clause gave us a good return. Does that apply still?

Keiffer was one of my favourite players during his time at FGR. I nominated him to score most goals during season but he was sold mid-season.
At the time he seemed to be played anywhere from defender to centre forward.
Since then he has obviously greatly improved and settled down as a pure striker.
And now we find he is in competition with Christian D for an international call up with Wales.
It was a pleasure to have both him and CD at TNL and I wish them both well.

echo that OTC.

that given-answering the question ,even though MC for whatever reason did not seem to value him (rumblings of inconsistent ) i would always rate KM the more valuable and frankly better player .

was it MC or Pennock who brought KM to FGR in the first instance ?

Pennock signed Moore.

People seem to be forgetting that we sold him to Ipswich, who had been tracking him for a while, and he was out of contract at the end of that season. So whether we'd got more out of him or not, he would still have left at that point anyway. We did pretty well without him though, what with getting promoted that season.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
