Moore will be part of the interview panel that will assess candidates on Thursday as some of the burden of the recruitment of players is removed from the manager’s shoulders.

While finding the right person for the job is key, he is also looking for someone who buys into the ethos of the club.

“It’s someone who shares in the ideas of what we’re trying to bring in here,” Moore told the Free Press.
