EXPERIENCED coach Gary Whild has been announced as the new assistant manager at Solihull Moors.
Whild has many years experience at non-league’s top level following five years at Kidderminster Harriers between 2010 and 2015, firstly as Assistant Manager to Steve Burr and then as number one when he took over the reigns.
As manager he tasted just two defeats in 25 games and Kidderminster were in the play-off positions until financial problems forced the club to sell three of its best players.
His vast knowledge of what it takes to compete at this level will be vital as Moors look to establish themselves as a National League team.
“I’ve known Marcus for a while and I’m confident that I can help him to establish Solihull Moors in the National League,” said Whild.
“After enjoying a successful time at Kidderminster Harriers I’m looking forward to working with a young, bright, ambitious Manager and I intend to help him and the club in any way possible.”
Moors manager Bignot added: “I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to further develop the infrastructure at the club by appointing Gary Whild in a full time capacity to the management team.
“In order to develop and prepare the club for the transition into the National League and for what is expected and required at that level, having Gary on board will benefit everyone concerned, including myself, the staff and the players, that’s how good I believe he is.”
Following Whild’s appointment, Moors have confirmed that Simon Redhead will now focus more on the role of ‘Football Operations’ within the club.
