FOOTBALL - Shock as manager Neal Ardley departs Solihull Moors by mutual consent

SOLIHULL Moors manager Neal Ardley has left the club by mutual consent after just over two years in charge at the ARMCO Arena.

Ardley took Moors to within one game of the Football League in 2021/22 as they lost in the Promotion Final against Grimsby Town following a third place finish in the league.

However, after the sale of key players and several injuries, Moors were only able to finish 15th in the National League last season as they failed to win any of their last eight matches.

Moors chairman, Darryl Eales, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Neal over the past two seasons.

“He has overseen our continued push as a club to punch above our weight and operate to the highest professional standards.

“He led the club to our best ever season in 2021/22 where we reached the National League Promotion Final and generally introduced a fast paced, style of play which is attractive on the eye and has been at the forefront of our player development philosophy.

“This is an amicable and respectful parting of the ways, wholly consistent with Neal’s values and character, and I wish him every success in the future.”

Ardley departs the club having won 47 of his 104 games in charge as Moors begin the search for his successor.
