Striker Kieffer Moore is looking forward to finally making his debut for Torquay United.

The 24-year-old, who was born in Torbay, was in the Gulls youth set-up before it was scrapped in 2004, and also served as a ball boy at the club.

The former Yeovil Town player is now back at Plainmoor on loan from National League leaders Forest Green.

"It'll be good to step on the pitch finally as a player and see where it takes me," Moore told BBC Sport.

"I haven't been playing that much of late so it will be good to get some games, and when I found out it was Torquay it was right on my doorstep so it was a no-brainer."

Moore began his career at Truro City, having been spotted playing in the amateur South Devon League in Paignton.

He went on to play for Yeovil Town in the Championship and League One before moving to top-flight Norwegian side Viking FK.

"I think I've done well and I'm hungry and want to succeed," said Moore of his one-month loan at Torquay.

"I want to go further with my career and see where it can take me.

"This is my hometown club, I'm going to relish playing here, I'm going to love it and if it helps me get back in the Forest Green squad that's brilliant."
