FOOTBALL - James Clarke signs new deal with Solihull Moors

Solihull Editorial 23rd Jun, 2023   0

DEFENDER James Clarke has signed a new two-year deal with Solihull Moors to keep him at the ARMCO Arena until 2025.

Clarke has made 77 appearances for Moors since arriving on loan from Mansfield Town in 2021, a move which later became permanent.

The 23-year-old is itching to return to the pitch next season having won the club’s community contribution award, players’ player of the season and supporters’ player of the season awards last term.

Clarke said: “I’m buzzing, the gaffer has shown a lot of trust in me over the past year and a half, and I’ve really enjoyed playing under him, playing here.

“For him to put that trust in me again and give me another couple years means a lot to me and hopefully I can repay him over the season and next.

“Everyone at the club has made me feel so welcome, when I initially came on loan I think I only signed for a month to get some game time.

“As soon as I came here I fell in love with everything about Solihull Moors.

“We’ve needed a long break after a tough season but I’m itching now to get back to training, to see the lads again and hopefully have a successful season.”

Moors boss Neal Ardley added: “It’s a huge boost to the club that James has extended his stay at Moors.

“I’m sure everyone at the club agrees that Clarkey’s commitment is huge. He sets the standards day in day out in training and is a leader within the group.”
