FOOTBALL - Solihull Moors chairman Darryl Eales determined to take club into Football League

Solihull Editorial 16th May, 2024   0

SOLIHULL Moors chairman, Darryl Eales, has penned a message to the club’s supporters following the conclusion of the 2023/24 campaign.

Moors enjoyed an excellent season on the pitch as Andy Whing guided the club to the National League Promotion Final and FA Trophy final at Wembley.

Solihull ultimately lost both matches on penalties in heartbreaking fashion and chairman Eales is more determined than ever to take the club into the Football League for the first time in their history.

Eales said: “After a challenging couple of days, I wanted to write to all supporters to thank each and everyone for their fantastic support, both at Wembley and throughout the season.

“To come so close is heartbreaking but this should not detract from a wonderful season which has created so many memories and new friendships.

“Your messages of personal support are truly appreciated and make me even more determined to do everything I can to enable us to help us take that extra step and reach the Football League.

“Events over the past month have reinforced what a wonderful community club we are, with everyone – fans, staff, players and our brilliant foundation – coming together and truly demonstrating the real contribution grass roots football can bring to local people‚Äôs lives.

“Hopefully, there will be a halo effect from the Wembley appearances and more families will come and support the team next season.

“The work starts now to plan pre-season and the league campaign and I would urge everyone to spread the Moors word.

“I wish everyone a relaxing and recuperative Summer and look forward to seeing everyone again for pre-season in July.”
