Solihull Editorial 6th Aug, 2014 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

SOLIHULL MOORS Youth and Junior sections of he club have been named winners of the Birmingham County FA Development Club of the Year for 2014.

The Club received the award at last Monday nights annual Presentations of the BCFA from Tony Sealey OBE, Business Franchise Operator for McDonalds Restaurants Ltd.

“Solihull Moors achieved Charter Standard Development status in August 2013, only nine months after they initially became a Charter Standard Club, testament to the hard work from Tim Delaney (Football Secretary and former Head Of Youth Development), Claire Graham (Youth and Junior Secretary and Welfare Officer), Paul Mason (Youth & Junior Co-Ordinator/Assistant Head of Youth)and the rest of the Youth Development team involved at the club.

They initially started out in the 2012/13 season with just 2 teams and now currently support over 30 teams, both boys and girls from Under 9’s upwards. The club are committed to the safe and sustainable running of their club and they are proactively implementing the FA Youth Review.

They are very active in their local community and run summer camps in schools and colleges local to the club. They are now looking to work with the County F.A. to obtain the Charter Standard Community Status which we are sure is not far away.”

Marcus Bignot, the Club’s Manager & Director of Football said: “Well done to everyone involved – you should be very proud of the contribution you have made to the Club and to be recognised for this is well and truly deserved.

“I’m very proud of where this Club stands within Football and the Community.”

Trevor Stevens, The Club Chairman added: “This Award is a credit to all the many good hard working people devoted to the success of Solihull Moors Youth and Juniors and indeed the Whole club.”
