Signing: Kelsey Mooney arrives from Aston Villa

31 August 2018

Cheltenham Town have welcomed their fourth new signing in the past week this morning with the arrival of Kelsey Mooney from Aston Villa.

The 19-year old striker has signed a loan deal until the start of January.

Mooney is the son of former professional player Tommy Mooney, who had a distinguished career with a number of clubs including Watford and Birmingham City.

Tommy Mooney is now a coach at Aston Villa and his son Kelsey has made a strong start to the new season in the Villa Under-23 team. Cheltenham caretaker manager Russell Milton won the race to sign the promising young player despite interest from clubs in League One.

Russ Milton said “We’ve seen Kelsey play a number of times for Aston Villa U23’s. He is an impressive player with very good movement and a good runner. He has started well for the U23’s scoring 5 times this season. He will be a good fit here and we now have a number of strong options which we can use accordingly”.
