Solihull Moors bring in three new additions

MARCUS Bignot has moved to strengthen his Solihull Moors side with the capture of three experienced National League Premier players.

Jack Byrne joins from Kidderminster Harriers, along with the Nuneaton Town pair of Adam Walker and James Armson, which takes Bignot’s busy summer of signings to a total of nine new players as his revamped squad begins to take shape.

Byrne leaves the Harriers following a five-year stint at the club where he has made 164 appearances and scored 28 goals from midfield, including a memorable strike in an FA Cup win over Peterborough.

He previously played for Solihull Borough as an 18-year-old prior to the 2007 merger to form Solihull Moors and made the step up to the Conference Premier five years ago with Kidderminster who signed him from Redditch United.

Walker and Armson have been ever-presents in the heart of the Nuenaton Town side ever since they both made their club débuts during the 2010-11 season.

Meriden-born Walker was released by Coventry City back in 2010 despite having made his full debut in the Championship against Sheffield Wednesday and he turned down a move to Luton Town in 2012.

Armson progressed through Town’s youth setup and gained an England ‘C’ cap back in 2013

Both players have since made over 200 appearances for Nuneaton helping the club gain promotion to the Conference Premier in 2012.

Moors have confirmed one departure after Midfielder Reece Fleet agreed to re-join his former club Oxford City next season.

The newly relocated Vanarama National League South side finished sixth in the Conference North this season and have snapped up the former Birmingham City Academy player, who returns to the club where his father, Colin, was a club legend.

Reece made almost 100 appearances for Moors and scored five goals, mostly thunderbolts from well outside the 18 yard line.
