Solihull Moors

Solihull Borough, another club to have emerged after the emalgamation of two regional neighbours, had spent most of their recent years in Division One of the Southern League, and Moor Green, one of the best known old amateur clubs in Birmingham, were holding their own in Conference North, decided to get together in 2007 and play at Damson Park in Solihull.

So far, its been a tough battle to survive and establish a challenge in Non-League football’s second level. One season in the top ten ( 7th in 2010-2011), but three other seasons struggling to avoid the drop, probably points towards another tough campaign.

Perhaps a cup run would lift expectations, as it did in 2007, when the trip to the 4th Qualifying Round lifted morale. Long serving manager Bob Faulkner had always encouraged a youth policy and the club’s youth team had produced some promising talent but the club were dealt a sad shock when the popular manager died in February 2011.

Mickie Moore took over the manager’s job but was invited to join Blue Square Premier club Mansfield Town. Marcus Bignot has taken over at Damson Park and will be hoping the promising youngsters can cope with Blue Square North standards.
