Moors feeling blissful with Blissett

Ben Tyler 21st Dec, 2018

SOLIHULL Moors have added to their ranks with the signing of Nathan Blissett from Macclesfield Town on a deal that runs until the 2019/20 season.

The 28-year old striker has previous experience of winning two promotions from the National League, and Tim Flowers will hope his new forward will add a third promotion to his CV come May.

Blissett as recently as last season won promotion from the fifth tier as league winners with his former side, where he made a permanent move following a loan from Plymouth Argyle, but has decided to move back to the Midlands to try and add more firepower up front to a Solihull side which has surprised everyone this term.

The West Bromwich man is very much acquainted to this level, having turned out for Kidderminster Harriers after starting out with Romulus, scoring 11 goals for Harriers before moves to Cambridge United and Tranmere Rovers, winning a first promotion with Bristol Rovers in his next career move.

12 goals in 41 games at Torquay at the same level followed in 2016 – and that earned him recognition from Plymouth who’s gamble on the striker paid dividends as they were promoted to League One.

After failing to make any appearances during his permanent spell with the Silkmen in League Two, Blissett is feeling upbeat about his move to the Moors.

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be a challenge in what we’re looking to do, but the main aim is to try and push for promotion or at least a play-off place.

“I’m a Midlands boy and there’s staff here that I know very well. There are players here that I want to play with and create some good memories” admitted Blissett.

Assistant manager Gary Whild re-iterated the striker’s quality at this level, going on to say: “Nathan has a great record at getting promoted from this level and even in the Football League.

“He will massively add to our frontline and, most importantly, Tim and I have worked with him before.

“He’s good on the pitch and is the right type of person to bring in – he’ll add to the group off-the-pitch as well with his attitude.”

Blissett becomes available for Solihull’s next game as they play host to Barrow in the National League, 3pm kick-off at The Automated Technology Stadium.

Tickets start at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for under-18s.
