One of the stranger stories of 2020 has taken a Liverpool-related turn, as ex-Liverpool FC Chief Executive Officer Peter Moore is set to join National League club Wrexham as an advisor.
Wrexham are, of course, being taken over by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds (of Deadpool and Van Wilder fame) and Rob McElhenney from long-running sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Moore left the CEO post in July this year after a three year stint as CEO of the club, passing on the mantle to Billy Hogan. Presumably, an advisory role will still give Peter plenty of time to spend more time with his family and kids stateside.
I’ll provide help as an advisor to the club that gave me so many great moments in the historic seasons of the 70’s, and to the community in which I lived before leaving for the US...not be as an employee or in a full-time capacity, but just as someone that wants to give back..2/2 https://t.co/JNAqMjT5TH— Peter Moore (@PeterMooreLFC) November 29, 2020
The former Sega, Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Reebok head honcho has ties to the Dragons (as they are nicknamed), having watched Wrexham as a youngster during a period when he lived in north Wales. We wish Peter all the best in his next role.
