SIGNING: Kelsey's a Red

Striker Kelsey Mooney joins the Reds from Boston United on a two-year contract

17 May 2024

Accrington Stanley have today completed the signing of striker Kelsey Mooney from Boston United on a two-year contract.

Born in Hertfordshire, Mooney is a product of Aston Villa's youth system and spent four months on loan at Cheltenham Town in 2018/19 - before permanent moves to Hereford, Scunthorpe United, and Leamington.

The 25-year-old, who joined Boston last summer, found the net on 16 occasions for Ian Culverhouse's side, with half of those coming in the month of March - helping The Pilgrims achieve promotion via the Play-Offs.

Mooney's contract will keep him at the Wham Stadium until the summer of 2026.

John Doolan said: "He looks like a footballer straight away, looks like a number nine, looks like a striker you can play up to, and there's still more to come from him, and that's what we're going to work with.

"We're going to get him better from a tactical point of view, so I'm really looking forward to working with him, and I'm just so happy that we've got that one in.

"Kelsey's his own man, his own player, but he does remind me so much of Colby Bishop. I'm not putting any pressure on Kelsey, but I can see potential there."

Kelsey added: "As soon as the opportunity arose, it was one of them things, it's an easy decision, and then obviously I've come here and met the gaffer and everyone, and it's just swayed me.

"I had to speak to Ian Culverhouse and he was brilliant with me. He was understanding that the opportunity doesn't come around that often to go back to the Football League, so I'm delighted.

"I'd say I'm a traditional number nine, a handful to play up against, a centre-half will know he's been in a game, and score goals."

A full interview video with Kelsey will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel later today, CLICK HERE to find out more!
