Former skipper Daly completes shock return to Moors after brief spell at Kidderminster

Solihull Editorial 31st Aug, 2017   0

FOOTBALL: FORMER Moors skipper Liam Daly has completed a remarkable move which will see him return to the Automated Technology Group Stadium.

The towering centre-half left Moors in June to join Kidderminster Harriers on a full-time basis.

But, following a brief stint with the National League North side, the lure of working with Liam McDonald at Moors proved too strong for the 29-year-old.

A dominant force at the back and a natural leader, the crowd favourite will now begin a third spell at Solihull having amassed over 200 appearances.

Moors boss McDonald said he is confident supporters will acknowledge his new signing will be a huge capture to his side.

He added: “Before his departure to Kidderminster, Liam was pivotal to my plans and was a massive part of our vision moving forward so it was a blow, albeit understandable, for us when he left.

“That move hasn’t worked out as Liam would have hoped but he has brought into what we have planned at this football club and is eager to play a part in the next chapter as we strive to establish ourselves as a Vanarama National League club.

“It’s been a tough start to the season with the amount of injuries we’ve had so Liam’s return is a massive shot in the arm.

“Hopefully we’ll soon be back to full strength and begin to produce the results we’re capable of.”

Meanwhile Daly revealed he left Kidderminster on good terms and added he never wanted to leave Solihull in the first place.

“I’ve only missed five games so nothing changes for me,” said Daly.

“The aim for me is to keep Solihull in the league and I have no doubt that we will do that. The team looks very strong and I can’t see why results won’t come quickly.

“The move has made me excited about football again. Deep down I didn’t want to leave in the first place and Solihull did try to keep me.

“I’m quite close with the fans and I had a lot of messages wishing me all the best. I just hope that this will give the club a boost to kick on and I can’t wait to get going.”
