FOOTBALL: FANS’ favourite Jack Byrne will not feature in Liam McDonald’s Solihull Moors side next season.
The 28-year-old midfielder joined Moors at the start of the 2015/16 promotion season following a five-year stint at Kidderminster where he made 164 appearances and scored 28 goals, including one memorable strike during an FA Cup win over Peterborough.
Byrne previously played for Solihull Borough as an 18-year-old in their final season prior to the 2007 merger to form Solihull Moors and featured in the club’s last ever match at Berkhampstead.
He made the step up to the Conference Premier in 2010 with Kidderminster who signed him from Redditch United.
Technically gifted, he quickly made his mark at the ATG Stadium with his battling no nonsense ‘never say die’ attitude which soon earned him the respect of home fans
In all Byrne played 85 games for Moors over the last two seasons, during which time he notched nine goals – none more important than the brace scored against Yeovil to earn a replay in the First Round proper of the FA Cup.
He also bagged the second goal at Macclesfield in a match that sealed Solihull’s National League survival.
