Club career

Moore joined Lincoln City from Doncaster Rovers Belles in 2005.[2] In 2007 Moore signed for Leeds United and played in that season's FA Women's Cup final defeat to Arsenal.[3] She also started a 3–1 Premier League Cup final win over Everton on 11 February 2010, to help Leeds win their first major silverware.[4] In December 2010, Moore was revealed to have signed for Birmingham City's FA WSL squad.[5]

Moore started against Chelsea Ladies in the 2012 FA Women's Cup Final, which Birmingham eventually won after a penalty shootout.[6] In June 2016, Moore and teammate Jo Potter both bought out the last six months of their Birmingham City contracts and left the club as free agents. Despite the players' long service, a statement on Birmingham City Ladies' website called the development "an excellent deal for the club".[7]

Later that month Moore and Potter joined Notts County on short term deals until the end of the 2016 FA WSL season.[8] Less than a year later, however, the club folded before the 2017 FA WSL Spring Series.[9] Becoming a free agent, Moore joined Reading along with teammates Jo Potter and Kirsty Linnett in May 2017.[10]

International career

A 15-year-old Moore made her debut for England Under-17s.[2] She has since represented England at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-23 levels. Moore played in the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in both 2008 and 2010.[11]

Moore also featured in England's 2009 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship final win, against Sweden in Belarus.[12] She received her first call up to the senior squad in October 2011, ahead of a UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifying tie against the Netherlands.[13] Moore won her first senior international cap in February 2012, playing 90 minutes of England's 3–1 Cyprus Cup win over Finland.[14] On the occasion of her third cap, Moore scored against Italy as England were beaten 3–1 in the competition's third place play–off.[15]

National coach Hope Powell picked Moore in her squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013, but she remained an unused substitute in all three matches as England crashed out in the first round.[16] When Mark Sampson replaced Powell as England coach, he named Moore in his first squad in December 2013.[17] In May 2015, Sampson named Moore in his final squad for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, where the team finished third.[18] Moore was named to her third consecutive major tournament finals squad when Sampson selected her to his UEFA Women's Euro 2017 squad in April 2017.[19]

In May 2019, Jade was called up to the 2019 World Cup squad.[20]

Moore was able to resume training two weeks after surgery.[22] After graduating from university in 2013, Moore set up her own sports therapy business.[23]
