Moors Break 2014 Duck

hedna1Just three weeks ago Hednesford rained on Moors parade as they came back from 2–0 down with three goals in the last 15 minutes. A win at their home ground last Saturday would have sent the Pitmen back to the top of the Skrill North league but Solihull, building on last weeks draw, were back to their determined best on a cold, soggy day ay Keys Park.


The home side went looking for an early goal and were only denied on 3 minutes by an outstanding save from Jas Singh as the ball hurtled towards the top corner of the net from on-loan Nathan Blissett. It then became a battle of the midfields as both teams looked for openings. Junior English headed wide on 10 minutes as Moors began to push forward but making the final ball count proved difficult on the muddy pitch. It was English again on the half hour mark picking up a through ball from Jordan Gough, just failing to beat Ex Moors keeper Crane with the goal otherwise at his mercy. An in-swinging corner from Ryan Beswick glanced off English’s head flashing just wide of the upright, whilst in the closing minutes of the first half Singh did well to push a fierce shot from Thompson-Brown (another ex Solihull man) over the bar. Goal less at the interval was a fair reflection of the opening half.


hedna3Solihull made a bright start as play re-commenced – Beswick, Dean and Geohaghon starting to menace the Hednesford defence. Then on 57 minutes Bailey handled the ball just outside the 18 yard box and Dior Angus curled the free kicked into the right hand corner of the net with Crane watching the incoming Gary Birch and not moving. Moors continued to press forward but when Birch was robbed as he looked ready to double the score five minutes later, the big strikers frustration boiled over and he was dismissed for a straight red card offence.


Michael Taylor was immediately brought on in place of Angus to restore Solihull’s shape up front but the Pitmen smelt blood and began powerful forays into Moors back third – just as they had done three weeks earlier. Singh was clattered to the ground needing several minutes of attention from the physio, as he punched away a dangerous cross, whilst Alex Dean cleared off the line from the resulting shot from Anagho-Ntamark. Solihull remained positive and English was unlucky to see his shot on 75 minutes hit the side netting. Then with 13 minutes left on the clock it was substitute Anagho-Ntamark again who found himself free some 15 yards out and blasted his team back into the game giving Singh no chance.


Far from trying to preserve the one point, Moors went looking for all three and on 79 minutes the game swung again: Solihull were awarded a thrown in well within range for the 18 yard box from giant Moors man Exodus Geohaghon. As Hednesford shaped up for the long throw the Solihull defender chose a short ball which was whipped into the box to captain Rob Elvins; he held it up whilst surrounded by three defenders and laid it back to that man English who from twenty yards out drilled a low shot into the corner of the net despite Crane’s best efforts to get a hand on it.

 

hedna2Almost immediately Hednesford’s captain (yet another ex Solihull player) Darren Campion was sent off for a second bookable offence to restore parity numbers wise between the two sides, and Bailey should also have gone minutes later as he scythed down English. Solihull defended the 6 minutes added time resolutely, typified by the hard working Jay Denny literally throwing his body in front of a goal bound shot. Taylor did his job up front keeping the Pitmen’s back four busy as the final whistle signalled the end to a combative encounter but a deserved win for the mighty Moors.

Bay Draw Ends Losing Streak

colwyn bay darryl knights goal 3 redBack in early November Moors took their unbeaten league record to Colwyn Bay who at the time occupied a lowly position in the Skrill North, but came away with a 3-1 defeat. Since that time Bay have been unstoppable and started this return match just 3 points behind seventh placed Moors who were still looking for their first win this year.

colwyn bay dior angus newsMoors were instantly into the fray with Darryl Knights looking particularly dangerous down the left flank – his pass to Dior Angus on 5 minutes being blasted over the bar. The Seagulls first meaningful attack came with a quarter of an hour played when Crowther was off target with an undefended header. Again the visitors failed to gain any benefit from a badly taken free kick on the edge of the box 5 minutes later.

On 24 minutes Knights left his marker standing although his cross was easily cut out by keeper Sanna but the Moors winger had no trouble on the half hour mark as he latched on to Ryan Beswick’s pass, skipped past his defender and delicately dinked the ball from an acute angle over the on-rushing keeper to put Moors one up. It might have been two in as many minutes as Knights rattled in an 18 yarder which looked destined for the top right hand corner but Sanna anticipated well with a finger tip save. Solihull piled on the pressure with chances falling to Beswick, Geohaghon, Blackwood and Birley and with a minute of normal time remaining before the interval Beswick’s cross needed just a touch which was not forthcoming.

Clearly Manager Frank Sinclair had rallied his team with his half time instructions and it was a more positive Bay that emerged for the second half. Jas Singh spilled an innocuous shot from Evans in the swirling wind with 3 minutes played but dived back to save the possible goal before Moors conceded a soft penalty in the 55 minute when Geohaghon pushed Hopley in the box. Ellison duly sent the Moors keeper the wrong way as the Seagulls leveled. Then on 63 minutes Moors failed to deal with a long throw into the box and there was the unmarked Ellison 12 yards out to smash the ball into the net for number two.

colwyn bay jay denny and junioe englishSolihull to their credit rallied immediately and were rewarded within five minutes as Alex Dean cut across the bay box from right to left before slotting the ball beautifully into the path of Angus who was duly clattered to the ground. Referee Dexter pointed immediately to the penalty spot and Beswick obliged to restore parity. With Birch English and Gough on for Nottingham, Birley and Angus, Moors went in search for all three points. Birch might have done better on 68 minutes when he collected Beswick’s pass 10 yards out but Solihull had Singh to thank after a poor clearance from Geohaghon went straight to Hopley who shot straight for goal.

That elusive third goal was close with fifteen minutes left when a long Geohaghon throw was nodded across the goal mouth by Gary Birch but it was just beyond the incoming Michael Blackwood. Dean was enjoying some freedom down the right wing and went close on 82 minutes, but the free kick after English was brought down on the edge of the box is one Ryan Beswick will wish to forget. Four minutes of added time was awarded but neither team could break the deadlock.

Friday, 07 February 2014 15:15

dom_langdonrichard_taundryLong serving defender Dominic Langdon (left) has today re-joined his former club Brackley Town after four years at the Moors, whilst ex-Walsall midfielder Richard Taundry (right) joins the Moors from Worcester City.

Dominic made 139 appearances for the Moors since he joined the club from Brackley in 2010. His versatility as both a full-back and centre-half made him a great asset to the team, along with his dangerous long throws and tremendous fitness levels. During his time at the Moors he represented British Universities at the 2011 World Student Games in China, returning to win the Supporters' Player of the Year that season. Everyone here at Solihull Moors would like to thank Dom for his service to the club and wish him all the very best for the future.

Richard Taundry made 192 appearances for Walsall in his career with the League One side, the 24 year old having progressed through the ranks from their youth setup and making his first team debut in 2007. Since being released in the summer of 2013 he has spent most of the season at Worcester City making 26 appearances. He goes straight into contention for selection for Saturday's home game against Colwyn Bay.

north squareThe Football Conference and Skrill have mutually decided that the current title sponsorship by Skrill will not continue beyond the end of this current season. Skrill has undergone a number of changes since the agreement was entered into and will be aligning any future sponsorship activity to its global strategy.

The Football Conference has always enjoyed excellent relations with its previous title partners and, in the relatively short time it has worked with Skrill, has found the relationship to be a strong and beneficial one. It recognises that Skrills long-term plans have changed and is grateful for the opportunity afforded to it to be associated with such an excellent brand.

Both parties wish each other every success for the future.

The Football Conference, having established itself as a leading participant in the world of football and found a far wider audience for its matches on a major television network, is now commencing the process of seeking tenders for a new title sponsor to commence in 2014/15.

 
Moors Impress Despite Defeat

image033When Brackley travelled to Solihull earlier this season it was an Omar Bogle penalty which separated the sides and with the Saints still in the play off zone, the return fixture had all the ingredients of another tight battle. Moors had two new faces in their line up, Dior Angus up front and Exodus Geohaghon at the back. Captain Rob Elvins was for the first time in a Moors shirt playing at Centre forward a hark back to his West Bromwich Albion days.



Again for the second match running Moors conceded an early goal when the deadly Stephan Moore latched onto a defensive mistake and rifled in from 25 yards. Despite the set back Moors battled their way into the match and started to dictate play. Ryan Beswick’s free kick on 12 minutes was just over, Geohaghons' massive throws were causing problems for the home defence and we were starting to see the best of Alex Dean‘s runs down the right flank. On 20 minutes Angus got onto a Blackwood cross and danced around his defender but his final goal bound touch was somehow scuffed away. Jay Denny shot over two minutes later as Saints cleared another Beswick free kick. On 36 minutes Geohaghon met Beswick’s free kick but the header was deflected for a corner.


diorreeceTowards the end of the half Brackley were twice denied by Dom Langdon, first when a perfectly timed tackled prevented a one on one with Singh and then seconds later as he threw himself in front bravely in front of a goal bound effort. As the interval beckoned Geohaghon just failed to connect with a Beswick cross with the goal at his mercy and after an opening first half where Moors had most of the play they still trailed by the single goal.



Ryan Beswick’s speculative shot over the bar in the first minute from the restart set out Moors stall as they took the game to their hosts. Dom Langdon was inches wide on 50 minutes with Elvins header just off target as Solihull peppered the Brackley box with crosses. Beswick's header from a great Michael Blackwood run fell short on 57 minutes whilst on the counter attack Saints had a rare chance to extend their lead but Singh was equal to a week header from six yards. Ten minutes on Reid saw his 20 yard drive swerve away beyond the upright before Moors resumed the upper hand.


On 73 minutes a finger tip push over the bar by Turley from a Beswick corner kept his side ahead and almost immediately Michael Taylor was through but his shot hit the side netting. With Gary Birch on for Denny, the long throws and crosses kept the hosts on the back foot, but both Blackwood and Beswick saw chances go begging. Then with four minutes of normal time remaining Beswick put a pin point free kick in the path of Birch but his free header was over the bar. There was still time for Dean to try a 20 yarder and a dummy by Birch in the dying seconds eluded Turley but was wide of the mark.


image028Another disappointing result for Moors but they can look back at their performance as a return to normality after a bleak January as they prepare for next Saturday’s visit of Colwyn Bay for another Skrill Conference North Match Kick Off 3.00pm. Bay have stormed up the league in recent weeks but Solihull will not forget loosing their unbeaten record in North Wales last November and have a point to prove.

Friday, 31 January 2014 15:19

diorexodusFollowing the departure last week of Peter Till to Leamington, Manager Marcus Bignot has moved quickly to secure his replacement, with forward Dior Angus re-joining the club. Dior left the Moors in the summer to sign a one-year contract with Skrill Premier side Kidderminster Harriers, but has seen his first team chances limited this season to just six appearances. Having progressed through the youth team at Solihull Moors, he broke into the Moors first team last season and became an integral part of the team making 29 starts for the club and scoring 7 goals.

 

Also joining Solihull is Birmingham born Exodus Geohaghon from Braintree Town. The 6'5" defender was a part of last season's Conference Premier winning Mansfield Town side, with the 28 year old also turning out for Sutton Coldfield Town, Bromsgrove Rovers, Redditch United, Kettering Town, Peterborough United, Barnet, Darlington and Kidderminster Harriers during his career.

Both players join in time to be available to Manager Marcus Bignot for selection in Saturday's match away against Brackley Town.

City Defeat Completes Bad Month

worcester michael matt and stuartJanuary is a month Moors will wish to forget with just two points secured from six matches. They travelled the short distance to Worcester City’s temporary home at Aggborough, Kidderminster Harriers Stadium on Tuesday night, with some positives from the previous home defeat against Hednesford but the start of this local derby could not have been worse. Steven Leslie, only recruited by the Blues last November, found himself with space some 25 yards out in the second minute of play and fired in a thunderbolt, the force of which carried the ball over the line despite Jas Singh’s initial save. Moors had cause to thank their keeper for what followed as Solihull battled to get into the match after 15 minutes under the cosh. Reece Fleet’s in swinger was just wide of the post, whilst Ryan Beswick had a chance to shoot on 16 minutes but opted for a pass some 10 yards out.

 

worcester rob elvinsOn the half hour Alex Dean charged down the right flank, found Beswick in the box who flicked the ball on to Michael Taylor whose shot went across the face of the goal. It was a Beswick corner with seven minutes of the half remaining that found Stuart Pierpoint but his header back into the box was nodded out by Matt Birley. Singh denied Ethan Moore with a one on one opportunity, whilst Nti was foiled twice by the Moors keeper but with Solihull now back in the thick of things, they were failing again to test the keeper. The half went into added time and Worcester were awarded a free kick on the edge of the 18 yard box but the chance was spurned by the home side.


worcester reece fleetWorcester started the second half much as they had the opening segment although Jay Denny‘s header on 48 minutes was on target but saved by Viega. Singh saved well from the tall Aaron Brown on 51 minutes but then as Moors failed to clear a frenzied attack Ethan Moore was on hand to smash the ball home from three yards. To their credit Moors came straight back and on 57 minutes Denny slotted the prefect pass through to Beswick who gave Viega no chance as he rolled the ball into the corner of the net for 2 - 1.


Gary Birch found the back of the net on 61 minutes but was off side. Knights cross on 72 minutes eluded the incoming Junior English. Alex Dean’s effort on 76 minutes was just wide. Both Rob Elvins and Jay Denny joined the attack as Moors battled for the equaliser. However, the game turned when Pierpoint received his marching orders for a second bookable offence as he intercepted Ramsey Dickson. The ten men threw everything at their hosts but in the third minute of added time were caught on the break and Nelson- Eddy smashed the ball in for number three off the underside of the cross bar.

Moors Throw Away Two Goal Lead
( 13 Votes )
Saturday, 25 January 2014 18:15

Was it an ominous sign when 10 minutes before the start of this vital match for Moors, the clouds opened with thunder and lighting whilst another bumper crowd ran to the safety of the stands. Moors did everything to build a two goal lead but poor defending in the final fifteen minutes cost them dearly.

Solihull opened brightly with Michael Taylor hustling through the Pitmen’s defence and Junior English just failing to properly connect from a nod down from Gary Birch 6 yards out. On 15 minutes the visitors had their first meaningful foray into the box when Blissett got onto the end of a cross but his header was fractionally wide as Moors fans held their breath. On the half hour mark Birch was waiting in the six yard area when a Jordan Gough’s cross stuck in the mud and he reacted first to smash home a left footer to edge Solihull in front. With Moors playing better on the wet surface, Hednesford’s efforts to get back were thwarted and Beswick might have extended the lead on 41 minutes but for a brave dive at his feet from ex Moors keeper Crane. Their best chance was reserved for Osborne whose 25 yarder at the end of the half failed to cause Singh any problem.

Robbie Thompson-Brown, another ex-Moorsman went close in the second minute after the restart but Moors might have doubled their advantage on 55 minutes when Birch found himself one on one with Crane but chose a low shot as opposed to a lob which would have beaten the oncoming keeper. Within seconds Beswick’s in swinging corner needed a fine punch out on the goal line. Jordan Gough’s cross flew right across the goal with no one there for a nod, Wint was denied by Crane on 62 minutes and Elvins was inches short at the far post to meet yet another Beswick dead ball. Then on 72 minutes with the best move of the day Moors went further ahead – Aron Wint picked up the ball on the left flank, Birch nodded down the cross to Beswick who slid in for number two.

Whether Solihull took their eye off the ball or Hednesford finally showed why they are amongst the promotion favourites, the final quarter of an hour was a disaster for the home side. Within two minutes of the Moors goal they failed to clear their lines as Hednesford piled on the pressure and substitute Riley gave Singh no chance from 10 yards. Seven minutes later the Solihull defence was out jumped with a corner and Harvey had a relatively easy header for the equaliser. Just when it seemed Moors might hang on to a draw, they failed to deal with another corner and Francis needed only a tap in to send the away fans delirious.

The result still leaves Moors in seventh position but this was a game they should have won. Tuesday’s visit to Kidderminster Harriers ground, Aggborough, for the re-arranged match with Worcester presents another chance for the Moors to kick start the second half of the season and get them back into the play off positions. Kick Off 7.45 pm.

Lions End Moors' Home Run

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 08:45

guiseley1Since their elevation to the Conference North Guiseley have been in the play offs every season but when Moors visited them for the first game of this campaign it was Solihull who produced a stunning performance to take all three points with a 3 – 0 victory. Hoping to bounce back from the defeat last Saturday at Boston, Solihull were without the injured Omar Bogle and captain Rob Elvins taken ill before the start of the return fixture on a cold rainy night at Damson Park.

 

guiseley4Moors started positively with Jay Denny’s shot blocked on 11 minutes whilst Darryl Knight’s bullet on the quarter hour mark was deflected by Junior English. Guiseley could have opened their account on 24 minutes when Alex Johnson went close with a looping effort cleared off the line by Jordan Gough. With both sides playing end to end football Singh was called into action with 15 minutes to run with a diving save at the feet of Johnson and as Moors broke Langdon found Nottingham in the box but his dummy was not picked up by the attack. On 35 minutes Singh pushed a goal bound free kick around the post but just before the interval a short corner found Rothery on the edge of the box and, when his rasping shot was blocked, Hall was there for a simple tap in to give the Lions a one nil advantage at the break.



guiseley2Moors bright start after the interval was short lived when Guiseley doubled their lead as Lawlor’s header from a corner somehow found its way through a packed six yard area ending up in the corner of the net. With Beswick and Wint on after 10 minutes of the half, Solihull did their best to rescue the unbeaten home league record dating back to the start of the season but again the killer punch in the final third was missing and the danger of being caught on the break an ever present threat. On 52 minutes Knights shot rebounded out for a corner and Blackwood’s drive on 66 minutes sailed over the bar. A chipped free kick from Beswick to Birch failed to worry keeper Dredge resulting in another dangerous break as Brooksby found Johnson in the box but his shot hit the side netting.



guiseley3As Moors failed to capitalise on a consecutive free kick and corner it was, however, Brooksby who put the match beyond reach on 70 minutes when he took a defence splitting pass from Johnson, and a one on one with Singh saw the ball into the bottom right hand corner of the goal despite the keeper getting a hand to it. Michael Taylor was on as the match ebbed away but although he made a difference up front, the Guiseley goal was never threatened and thus ends the Moors unbeaten home league reun this season.

Pilgrims Progress Past Moors
( 8 Votes )
Sunday, 19 January 2014 09:10

boston3A bumper crowd turned out for this clash between two promotion hopefuls on a sunny Saturday in Lincolnshire. Moors might have opened the scoring in the first minute with Beswick getting onto a Knights cross but foiled by a fine save from keeper Lewis King. It was King again who denied Beswick, Bogle and English with all three shots on target lacking the pace to damage the score line. Whilst Moors poured forward Boston looked dangerous on the break and Gough cleared from a dangerous goal mouth scramble whilst Singh was in dominant form twice denying centre forward Miller early on. On 21 minutes Langdon was dispossessed in the box but recovered quickly to head away the ensuing pass across the goal mouth. Stuart Pierpoint, as always resolute in defence was knocked to the ground on the half hour – thankfully after a three minute delay Pierpoint was back on his feet and play resumed. Wint was upended some 15 yards from the goal line and Beswick’s subsequent free kick was just wide of the post



boston4The end to end play was brought to an abrupt halt when seven minutes before the interval Ryan Semple fired in from 18 yards and a touch from Garner gave Singh no chance as The Pilgrims opened their account. As the hosts looked to double the initiative Pierpoint was again left writhing in the 18 yard box but referee Miller chose to ignore his plight. Boston drove on and in the confusion Miller hammered the second goal again giving the Moors keeper little chance. Denny replaced the unfortunate Pierpoint as play resumed and In the five minutes of added time Miller’s fierce shot was tipped over the bar, Wint was just wide and finally Omar Bogle latched onto a cross, beat his opponent and slotted a beauty into the back of the right hand corner to reduce the deficit at the interval 2 - 1.

 

boston1Boston’s substitute goal keeper was on from the start of the second half but Moors failed to test him early on. Boston were flying and on 55 minutes Miller volleyed Semple’s corner with a curler into the top left hand of the net for a goal of the season contender. Solihull tried to respond – Reece Fleet saw his shot tipped over, but it was an uphill climb. Peter Till was on for Beswick in an effort to claw something back for Moors and Fleet might have scored on 63 minutes but failed to convert a knock down from Dom Langdon. Wint went wide two minutes later after good work from Knights before making way for Gary Birch with twenty minutes to play but Moors could not find a way through in the final third despite winning the battle of the mid fields in the dying stages of the game. Boston continued to be dangerous on the break - Singh using his legs to stop a one on one extending the lead, before McGhee hit the cross bar with a twenty yarder.



boston2Things went from bad to worse with five minutes remaining when Bogle was stretchered off and with an extended added time the 10 men hung on bravely before Miller was fouled in the box and duly converted for his second hat trick in a week.
