MOORS manager Tim Flowers says he is committed to taking on the challenge of topping the club’s best ever season in 2018/19, after joining assistant manager Gary Whild and first team coach James Quinn in penning new three-year deals until June 2022.
The trio are hoping to continue the success they enjoyed in the 2018/19 season, as the club continues to move in the right direction towards becoming a Football League side.
Flowers said he was pleased to extend his stay at the club for the long-term, and is confident of another positive campaign with the Moors.
“On behalf of myself and my staff, we are all absolutely delighted to have committed our future to Solihull Moors,” he said.
“The Club has found itself moving in the right direction over the last 18 months culminating into a second-place league finish, 3rd round draw of the FA Cup and quarter-final of the FA Trophy.
“Improving on that won’t be easy and it’s a massive challenge, but a challenge that we are relishing, and we looking forward to pushing Solihull Moors on.”
Solihull Moors Chairman Darryl Eales admitted that it was a straightforward decision to enter negotiations with the trio over new deals, and believes the management team will continue to lead the club on an upward curve.
“I’m sure everyone connected with the Club will be delighted that Tim, Gaz and Quinny have accepted and signed extended contracts – it was certainly one of the easier decisions we’ve had to make as a Board!” he said.
“Personally, they are a pleasure to work with characterised by their professionalism, attention to detail and desire to win.
“We are all determined to build on last season’s exploits and develop the Club sustainably both on and off the pitch.
“At its heart, the Club is community based and Tim, Gaz and Quinny share this community vision as well as the ambition and determination to eventually gain Football League status.”
Assistant manager Whild is amazed by the transformation of the club in the last few years, and is looking forward to overseeing the continued progression at the club.
“These are exciting times at the club,” he said.
“The chairman, the board and everyone involved deserve a pat on the back and hopefully we can build on last season and get out of this tough league.
“In terms of the last 18 months and if you look back at where we were, it’s incredible to see how things have progressed in such a short space of time.
“We’ve become a lot more competitive on the field, but the community and family values at the club have remained consistent which is important.”
Meanwhile, Quinn added his excitement to be a part of the long-term project at Solihull.
“I have enjoyed every minute of my time at the Moors since I came to the club,” said the Moors first team coach.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Tim, Gaz, Darren and all the staff and such a special group of players.
“I’m genuinely excited about the project that the club has underway and building on the fantastic season we had last year.”
