Solihull Moors have secured the services of striker Danny Newton, who has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal with the club.

Newton, 30, has spent the last four seasons in the Football League with Stevenage, scoring 26 goals in 115 appearances.

That move followed a prolific spell in non-league football, which included netting 29 goals for Tamworth in the 2016/17 season.

Born in Liverpool, Newton began his career at Hinckley United and went on to enjoy goal scoring success with Barwell, Leamington and the Lambs.

His participation in the V9 Academy in 2017 attracted the attention of a number of EFL clubs before an eventual move to Stevenage, who Newton departed at the end of June.

On signing for Moors, Newton said: “It’s exciting to be at this club, it’s a progressive club. I had a few good chats with the manager in the summer, talked about how he wants to play and where the club’s going – it’s an exciting place to be, so I’m delighted to get it signed.

“From what I’ve seen of the gaffer and the lads, we play quite attacking football and hopefully I get the chances – I back myself to put them away.

“I’m known for my work rate, it’s a given. I’m good in the air, like to rough defenders up and I always give 100% no matter what.”

Manager Neal Ardley added: “Danny is a striker we have followed closely and was at the top of our list at the start of pre-season. We understood Danny may have had league clubs battling for his signature, so had to play a patient game with him.

“We have stayed in touch throughout pre-season and we are delighted to bring him to the club. His energy and work rate is first-class and added to his goals, will be a big asset for us.”
