After moving to England, Moyo began playing football at the age of thirteen for local youth club Duffield Dynamos and later played for Milton Express and Stone Dominoes in the Stoke area, also spending time on trial with Stoke City. He was chosen to represent the Staffordshire County team at the age of sixteen. He joined Barrow at the age of eighteen, signing a one-year deal, and began studying a sports science degree at Staffordshire University alongside playing football. His university commitments would eventually lead to his departure from Barrow in 2013 as he decided to take a three year break from the game after struggling to make the three hour journey from his home for training and matches due to his studies.
Following his release from Barrow, he spent short spells with local sides Witton Albion, Trafford and Nantwich Town during his break. Following his graduation from university, Moyo joined Alfreton Town after featuring for the side in pre-season matches. He spent one season at the club before joining FC Halifax Town in 2016. His departure from Alfreton drew criticism from manager Nicky Law who claimed that Moyo had verbally agreed to sign a new deal with the club and that the player did not inform him of the move. In his first season with Halifax, he helped the club win promotion to the National League.
After playing for Staffordshire, he was called up to the England under-18 team.
Moyo was called up by the Zimbabwe national teamfor the first time in March 2018. He made his debut in the semi-final of the 2018 Four Nations Tournament, during a penalty shootout defeat against hosts Zambia on 21 March 2018.
In May 2018 he was called up to the Matabeleland football team for the 2018 ConIFA World Football Cup.
