Moxon: It's Worth The Drive

Midfielder delighted to make Pompey switch

1 February 2024

You cannot move much further from home without hopping on a plane or boat and departing this sceptred isle.

But Owen Moxon did not have any doubts about leaving hometown club Carlisle to make a deadline day switch to Pompey.

The midfielder – who shone when the Cumbrians won promotion from the fourth tier last term – has put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half year deal.

And he wants to help ensure that his new side can maintain their lofty position at the top of the table.

Moxon said: “It’s been a crazy 24 hours and I’m absolutely buzzing to be here. It’s a long drive down, but well worth it.

“Once I’d spoken with the manager it was a no-brainer and I just wanted to get here as soon as possible. I’m excited to get started.

“I had a great last season, getting to play at Wembley and winning promotion, but now I’m delighted to be here at a massive club.

"I want to be getting promoted and Pompey match the ambitions of where I want to be, so we’re looking to finish the season strongly."

“I’m looking to help this club get back to where it needs to be and that starts with getting into the Championship.

“I want to be getting promoted and Pompey match the ambitions of where I want to be, so we’re looking to finish the season strongly.

“This team is top of the league for a reason and I’ll be trying to add to that to get us over the line, while playing as many games as possible.

“I like to get forward, but also do the defensive side – I’d say I’m a box-to-box midfielder who wants to score and create goals. I can’t wait to show the fans what I can do.”

Moxon could be making a quick return to Cumbria, who Pompey having an away match at Carlisle next weekend.

He said: “I’m looking forward to going back up and hopefully there will be a good reception, but we’ll have to wait and see!

“I’ve got nothing but love for Carlisle. I grew up around there and it’s an amazing club with amazing people, but this was the right time for me to move on.”
