'Moyo has bright future'

HARARE - Northampton Town coach Chris Wilder has predicted a bright future for Zimbabwe Under-23 striker David Moyo saying the termination of his contract at the League Two side last week was a blessing in disguise.

The 19-year-old made 18 appearances during his Sixfields spell, scoring twice, playing the majority of his games coming off the bench.

Moyo, who featured for Zimbabwe U-23 in a friendly against Morocco in November, has since signed for Conference North neighbours Brackley Town where he spent time on loan.

The teenager fell out of favour at Northampton after falling down the perking order.

However, Wilder feels Moyo’s move away from the Cobblers could help the Zimbabwe born teenager kick-start his career adding it was in the youngster’s best interests to move on and have the opportunity of regular football.

“I was always going to bring the numbers down and I didn't think David would get a run in the side,” Wilder told English publication Herald and Post last week.

“Sometimes you have to make a decision, I did and David goes to Brackley with our best wishes as he’s a good lad.

“I looked at it, I’ve got Emile [Sinclair], I’ve got John-Joe [O’Toole] who has been playing, Ivan [Toney] to come back in and Marc Richards, I think sometimes you’ve got to make decisions for the players as well.

“There’s going to be a ridiculous amount of players at the end of the season who’ll be without football clubs and David does really need to play football.

“If he does well that’s great and he kick-starts his career but for him to just be hanging around the place, be a sub or not in the squad, I don’t think that’s right for David and for us and we move on.”
