Pacific FC Signs Striker Reon Moore: Trinidad and Tobago International joins Tridents on a two-year guaranteed contract

Pacific FC today announced the signing of Trinidad and Tobago international Reon Moore on a two-year guaranteed contract, with a club option for the 2026 Canadian Premier League (CPL) season.

The striker, 27, is a veteran of the Trinidad and Tobago men’s national team, the Soca Warriors, which he has represented on 25 occasions, scoring eight goals. He has played professionally, predominantly in his home country, since 2016.

“Reon comes to Pacific with ambition and a clear focus on his football,” said James Merriman, Head Coach, Pacific FC. “He’s scoring goals at the international level consistently and this comes down to his strong mentality.”

Moore made his debut for Trinidad and Tobago in March 2021 in a friendly against Guadeloupe. He has since gone on to play for his country in such competitions as the 2021 Gold Cup and the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 iterations of the Concacaf Nations League. Moore netted three goals and added an assist over five 2023-2024 Nations League games last year, including scoring the equalizer in an upset of the United States in November. Moore will play against Canada in a one-match play-in series to qualify for the 2024 Copa America on March 23rd, 2024 in Fresco, Texas.

He will get his first taste of professional soccer in Canada with Pacific after eight years in the pro game. The 6-foot native of Sangre Grande, Trinidad and Tobago has spent nearly his entire club career to date in the TT Premier Football League (TTPFL), representing the likes of North East Stars F.C., and Matura ReUnited before moving on to Defence Force in 2017. Moore competed with Defence Force until 2022, when he made a brief move to Guatemalan side CSD Municipal, where he made six appearances before returning to Defence Force. Moore finished the 2023 season with Defence Force in style, helping the team win the double by claiming league title and the TTPFL Knockout Cup.

“Reon will add presence to our group and continue to grow in his leadership,” said Merriman.

Moore will lead Pacific FC’s attack alongside Ayman Sellouf, Adonijah Reid, Dario Zanatta and Josh Heard during the 2024 CPL season. Pacific will open its 2024 season at Starlight Stadium on Saturday, April 13 at 4 p.m. PT against Halifax Wanderers FC.
