Omar_GrimsbyMoors Marksman Becomes A Mariner



The club has announced that Moors marksman, Omar Bogle, has today joined National League side, Grimsby Town on a 3 year deal for an undisclosed fee. The Football Conference North’s Top Goal-Scorer Of The Season, Player Of The Season and England C International’s future has been the subject of much rumour and speculation in recent months, as his achievements have not gone unnoticed by clubs in both The National League and Football League, but today we can announce that Grimsby Town have won the race to sign one of the hottest properties currently in non-league football.

 

OmarOmar said of his move, ”I'd like to thank all the fans at Moors for the support they've given me these last 3 years, especially the younger fans who have shown a lot of love towards me, I'll miss them a lot and can't thank those that have supported me enough.“ I'd also like to thank my team mates because without them I wouldn't of had my own success and I've made lifelong friends being at the club. Last - but not least - the Gaffer, he's believed in me more than anybody else and given me the freedom to be myself on and off the pitch, and pushed me to become a better player, and I know that will serve me well in the long run. I am sure Marcus will be a league manager one day and should I get into the league myself, I hope our paths will cross again.”


Omar has been a vital part of Marcus' team since he joined The Moors in 2012, making 121 appearances and scoring 68 goals in that time, he has played a huge part in transforming Moors into a regular top half of the table team, and his input will be sorely missed.


Marcus said, “Omar is now a step closer to fulfilling his ambitions by moving into full time football at a higher level. There is a realistic opportunity for him and his new club to be in the Football League very soon" I have no doubt he will be a success at Grimsby, and we here at Solihull Moors will look on with immense pride watching him fulfil his ambitions on his journey in the professional game.


Everyone at the club would like to thank Omar for his professionalism and his contribution to Solihull Moors, both on and off the field of play, and everyone connected with the club would like to take this opportunity to wish him continued success for the future and we will watch his development at the higher level with keen interest.

 


 

jordangoughMoor Ins & Outs At The Autotech

 

Solihull Moors FC are pleased to announce that Jordon Gough (right) will remain under contract with the Club for the 2015/16 season. The attacking full back will enter into his third season at this level after signing from Gresley in 2013. With the quality of players added to Bignot's squad, there is a real sense of optimism and genuine competition within the team for the forthcoming season at the Autotech Stadium. Furthermore, following ongoing discussions with Dominic Langdon and Owen Story, the Club can now confirm that both players have been given permission to talk to other Clubs.


domlangdonLangdon (left) has been a long standing member of the squad since joining the club in 2010. Over 2 spells with the club he made over 150 appearances and scoring 8 goals. His versatility of playing both left-back and centre-half, along with his professional approach made him popular amongst fans and players.


Winger Owen Story joined us last summer from Brackley Town and made 20 appearances for the Moors scoring one goal. After a mid-season injury, and with limited playing time available, he returned to Brackley on loan for the later part of the season for some regular game time.

We thank both players for their service to the club and wish them well in the future.

Vanarama National League Name Change Now In Effect

 

The official rebranding of the top tier of English non-league football as The National League is now effective. The Parent Company, formerly known as The Football Conference Ltd, will officially enact the name change at its Congress weekend on Saturday June 6th 2015 at Celtic Manor, Newport. Its three Divisions are henceforth officially entitled the: Vanarama National League, Vanarama National League North and Vanarama National League South.

 

Brian Barwick, Chairman of The National League said: “As the incoming Chairman of the Vanarama National League, I am pleased to welcome the new name in the full knowledge that it will be coupled with existing values and strengths of the competition that have been in existence for over 35 years. It is an exciting time to take over as Chairman and I look forward to the new season. I would also like to pay tribute to the person who I am succeeding; as a fellow Brian, I know it will be a tough act to follow Brian Lee who has enjoyed the respect of the game for many years.”


Competition Title Sponsor Vanarama, who last month announced a sponsorship extension and further financial support, employed sports marketing agency SportQuake to facilitate the name change and logo design. SportQuake specialise in creating world class two-way partnerships between rights owners and brands.

 

Managing Director of Vanarama Andy Alderson said: “Vanarama is proud to support the highest level of English non-league football. Re-branding as the Vanarama National League will increase the spotlight as the action kicks off again on 8th August. Next season, we’re thrilled to also support the pioneering NLTV Broadcasting Academy which will provide opportunities and equipment to media students.”

 

 


 

gazdeanMoors Set Stall Out

 

Solihull Moors have further increased their defensive ranks adding the sought after pair of Gareth Dean and Connor Franklin. They join their fellow former Nuneaton Town defenders Theo Streete and Gavin Cowan who joined the Moors last month.

 

connor_franklinCentral defender Gareth "Gaz" Dean (pictured left) had been at Nuneaton throughout his career, making his début for the club as an 18 year old in 2008. He made almost 300 appearances for the club, earning three promotions in his first four seasons at Liberty Way, as the club climbed swiftly to the Conference Premier.

 

Left sided defender Connor Franklin (pictured right) was an apprentice at Leicester City, and had a previous spell at Nuneaton before their liquidation in 2008. He then spent two years at Hinckley United before moving to Alfreton Town, where he picked up a Conference North Winners medal and made over 150 appearances in his four years at the Impact Arena, before returning to Nuneaton last summer.

 

A busy summer of player signings and re-negotiations for Moors Manager Marcus Bignot has seen the squad change extensively from last season. With eleven Conference Premier players brought in and the finalising of current player deals, the rebuilding for the forthcoming campaign is nearing completion at the Autotech Stadium.

 


 

jack_byrneSolihull's Overhaul Continues

 

Following the recent departures of Reece Fleet, Jay Denny, and Richard Taundry; Manager Marcus Bignot has strengthened his midfield options by capturing three experienced National League Premier players. Jack Byrne joins from Kidderminster Harriers, along with the Nuneaton Town pair of Adam Walker and James Armson. This takes Bignot's busy summer of signings to a total of nine new players in a revamped Solihull Moors squad.

Jack Byrne (pictured top right) leaves the Harriers following a five year stint at the club where he has made 164 appearances and scored 28 goals from midfield, including a memorable goal in an FA Cup win over Peterborough. Jack previously played for Solihull Borough as an 18 year old in their final season prior to the 2007 merger to form Solihull Moors. Byrne made the step up to the Conference Premier with Kidderminster in 2010, and is widely respected throughout the league as a technically gifted creative midfielder.

adamwalkerjamesarmsonAdam Walker (left) and James Armson (bottom right) have been an ever-present pairing at the heart of the Nuneaton Town side ever since they both made their club débuts during the 2010-11 season. James progressed through Town’s youth setup, whilst Adam had been released by Coventry City in 2010 having played for City in the Championship. They have since both made over 200 appearances for the club, helping the club gain promotion to the Conference Premier in 2012.

 

Moors supporters can get their first glimpse of this new look Solihull Moors side in their first home friendly of the season, at the Autotech Stadium against Mansfield Town on the 18th July 2015, in a 1.30pm Kick-Off.
