SOLIHULL Moors continued their remarkable start to the season with an impressive 2-0 victory away at Hartlepool United.

First-half goals from Joe Newton and Callum Maycock extended Moors’ unbeaten run to 12 matches at Victoria Park.

The result means Moors sit second in the National League table, five points behind leaders Chesterfield.

Moors head coach Andy Whing said: “The whole performance was absolutely fantastic, we were brilliant, it was the perfect away performance.

“We dominated the game, all in all it was an outstanding performance, it was really important to keep a clean sheet.

“Away from home we’ve been brilliant, we nullify the opposition, we’ve dug deep and the players nail the gameplan every single week, they work their socks off, I’m delighted with every single one of them.”

Moors opened the scoring on nine minutes when Newton finished coolly into the right corner of the goal from Jamey Osborne’s through ball after a lovely flick from Mark Beck to open up the pitch.

And the visitors doubled their lead on 35 minutes when Maycock scored his first goal of the season with a simple volley from close range from Newton’s dangerous left-wing cross.

Moors goalkeeper Tommy Simkin made a sensational save at the start of the second period somehow clawing out Mani Dieseruvwe’s header with the ball destined for the top left corner.

The visitors went close to a third goal when Beck headed inches past the post from a floated free-kick as Moors comfortably saw out the game to seal another fine victory.

Solihull are next in action away at York City on Saturday, September 30 with kick-off at 3pm at the LNER Community Stadium.
