Another former Brentford player has taken the plunge into management after Chris Moore last night stepped into the Egham Town hotseat.

Striker Moore was famously dubbed the Coca Cola Kid when Brentford used the cash won by a fan in a competition run by the soft drinks giant to buy him from Dagenham & Redbridge in the summer of 2006.

He got off to a flier with two goals in his first two games for the Bees, but then failed to net in 18 subsequent appearances and spent the rest of the season back on loan with the Daggers, as Brentford were relegated from League One.

His low point was being sent off in a 3-0 Carling Cup exit to Luton, and his final Bees appearance was in the 4-1 Boxing Day home drubbing by Millwall, before returning to the Daggers permanently the following summer.

Having started out with Uxbridge and Northwood, Moore drifted back into non-league football with Chelmsford, Farnborough, Uxbridge again, Wealdstone and finally Egham, where he was still playing last season.

He takes over a Sarnies side who finished fifth in the Southern League Central last season, but lost to one of his former sides, Farnborough, in the semi-finals.

Moore's appointment follows the announcement last month that namesake Sammy Moore, who played at Brentford the season after Chris left, has taken over as manager at Ryman Premier side Leatherhead.

Other former Bees to have played for Egham include Karle Carder-Andrews, Gus Hurdle, Luke Muldowney, Richard Pacquette, Simon Spencer and Scott Weight.
