A former Wealdstone defender is releasing a book detailing his career around the lower leagues.

‘And Sometimes, The Dog Was Busy!’ charts Fergus Moore’s career through non-league football since being released as an 18-year-old by Brentford, with his dreams of being a professional put on hold.

The book, co-authored by Roger Slater, details the managers, players and clubs Moore has come across, and the things he’s seen in his 28-year career to date.

After playing for 20 non-league clubs in Middlesex and Hertfordshire and with over 1200 games under his belt, Moore now strives to feed that knowledge and experience into his management style as player-boss of Edgware Town.

Earlier in his career, Moore enjoyed three spells with Stones, having played for the club from 1995-1999, again from 2001-2002 and finally 2006-2008.

‘And Sometimes, The Dog Was Busy’, detailing Moore’s career in non-league football, will be available from all good booksellers from September 24.
