Background: With more than 150 goals in his 15 year Football League career, Tommy Mooney arrived at Wycombe with a goal scoring pedigree not seen at the Wanderers since Andy Rammell. Originally a trainee at Aston Villa, he had to wait until a transfer to Scarborough to make his professional debut. His goalscoring talents for Boro got him noticed and a 100,000 fee took him to Southend United and then on to Watford. It was with The Hornets that he continued his goalscoring touch. A move to Birmingham saw him feature strongly in the side that earned promotion to the Premiership. However, after just one appearance in the top flight he was loaned out to Stoke City, the first of three loan deals that season. Taking a step down to Swindon Town saw him top up his scoring record and a further move to Oxford United in the summer of 2004 saw him finish the 2004/5 season as top scorer for the U's with 15 goals. It will the goalscoring touch that John Gorman will hope is retained as he looks to play out his twilight years with the Wanderers. Commenting to the Wanderers official website, Gorman said "He holds the ball up well and scores goals and he'll give us that something we've not had at times. I think it's a great signing for the club, I'm delighted to have him here and I hope the fans are happy with it."
