Jed McCrory joins Solihull Moors board

SOLIHULL Moors have confirmed that Jed McCrory has joined its Board of Directors.

McCrory move to Moors with the reputation of a man who knows the game inside out with the experience and connections to restructure the business to meet the needs of a club looking to establish itself further in English football.

He is best known rebuilding both Banbury United and Swindon Town, when both clubs were in turmoil on and off the pitch.

McCrory left both in a financially healthy position with teams challenging for their respective league titles and in September 2014 he aided Bristol Rovers with a restructure before leaving shortly before the club won a second promotion.

Mike Turl, the man who rescued Moors financially some three years back, asked McCrory if he would like to be part of Moors’ success following its elevation to the National league – the highest position they have ever held.

And despite having several other offers on the table from senior clubs, he had no reservations about joining Moors.

He said: “It’s always nice to be involved with a local club, and, with the strong community links that Solihull Moors has developed within the town

“It will enable Mike Turl who wants to devote more of his time to that side of the business and to building up Moors Academy.

“Having reviewed the football side of the club there are areas where my experience will enable the club to develop.”

McCrory was instrumental in bringing exciting wingers Omari Sterling-James and Shepherd Murombedzi to the club in the summer.

And the another reason for his return to football at the Moors was that his wife is Solihull-born and bred and having just had a baby boy, it gives him time to spend time with his family whilst enjoying working in football.

Club Chairman, Trevor Stevens, added: “We are delighted Jed has joined us at the Moors and already you can feel the improvements and professionalism that Jed brings in his jovial way.”
