FOOTBALL - Moors held again as Reid opens account

Solihull Editorial 18th Aug, 2022   0

ALEX Reid scored his first goal since returning to Solihull Moors as the home side were held to a 1-1 draw against York City in midweek.

The striker came off the bench to open the scoring on 57 minutes only for Lenell John-Lewis to equalise for the visitors on 65 minutes to deny Moors a first home win of the season at the ARMCO Arena.

And the result means Moors sit seventh in the National League table after three matches.

Moors made a strong start and had the ball in the net inside the first 10 minutes only for Joe Sbarra’s strike to be ruled out for offside.

And Solihull went close soon after as James Clarke’s shot cannoned back off the woodwork before Louie Moulden made an expert save at the other end to tip Mitch Hancox’s effort around the post.

Moors boss Neal Ardley introduced Reid shortly after the break and was rewarded when the striker converted Andrew Dallas’s low cross into the box.

However, the home side were in front for just eight minutes when John-Lewis turned home Maz Kouhyar’s cross.

Solihull had Moulden to thank for keeping the scores level when the on-loan keeper made a flying fingertip save to deny John-Lewis his second of the game and divert the ball over the bar.

New signing Connor Parsons was also used from the bench and he almost made an immediate impact with a jinking run into the box only to be denied by the legs of Ethan Ross in the York goal.

Moors are next in action away at Scunthorpe United on Saturday, August 20 with kick-off at 3pm at Glanford Park.
