SOLIHULL Moors have appointed Simon Redhead and Tim Colledge as Assistant Manager and Head of Physiotherapy respectively.
Redhead, the former Redditch United Manager joined the club 12 months ago as Under 21s Manager as well as being part of the 1st team set-up. He will now work even closer with Manager Marcus Bignot, and his knowledge of the game and local players will continue to prove invaluable.
“I’m delighted to take this opportunity with Marcus and Solihull Moors.” said Redhead.
“Having worked here for the past 12 months I have seen first-hand the professionalism and dedication by all the staff and players.
“I am excited by the challenge ahead, and genuinely feel we have a squad and set-up capable of challenging for honours.”
Through mutual agreement Karl Broadhurst steps down from his role with the club. Moors thanked Karl for his service over the past three years, firstly as a player and leader on the pitch, before taking on the Assistant Manager role. His character and leadership both on and off the pitch were instrumental in the club’s progression over the past three seasons.
Colledge, who takes up the new role of Head of Physiotherapy is no stranger to the current squad, as he has been the Moors’ Under 21s Physio this season, as well as helping to treat the first team players whenever possible. He will provide round-the-clock care for all players through his new clinic located at the club.
“I’m really excited for the challenge ahead, in what will hopefully be a successful year for us at Solihull Moors.” he said.
“I’ve known Marcus for quite a while now, and have also worked alongside the U21s set-up last season. When Marcus was discussing his vision for the club, alongside the other great people already in the club, it was something I wanted to be involved in.
“I am amongst a group of people that have recently set up BeMoreUK, a physio and sports therapy clinic, which is open to the general public at the Autotech Stadium.
This new venture is a part of Marcus’ vision of assisting the players with a full time provision for physiotherapy and injury management, which we hope will only be of benefit for the players and the club in achieving our goals in the season ahead.”
Colledge will take over from Pete Denham, who was not only the club physio, but was also instrumental in raising much needed funds for the club, which included being the driving force behind last year’s fireworks display.
Completing the Moors 1st Team staff are newly appointed coach Mark Fogarty, as well as returning staff members; goalkeeping coach Darren Acton, Sports Scientist Francis Bunce, and Kit Manager James Bradley, all of whom will assist Moors Manager Marcus Bignot in pushing the club forward.
“I am excited by the management structure we now have in place, said Bignot.
“Everybody involved are striving to build and progress the whole club further.
“It is always sad to see good people leave a football club, I wish Karl and Pete every success, and have no doubt that wherever they end up, those clubs will be all the better for having them on board.”
