SOLIHULL Moors have announced the signing of Kidderminster Harriers defender Lee Vaughan on a contract until June 2020.
The 30-year old from Castle Bromwich arrives having been an ever-present on the right side of Harriers defence in National League North this term, and adds further depth to Moors’ back four.
Having signed for Kidderminster in 2010, he made 157 appearances in all, either side of moves to Cheltenham Town and Tranmere Rovers, before returning to the Harriers in 2017.
Vaughan becomes available for this weekend’s trip to Ebbsfleet United in the league, and has stated his delight at getting the deal with Moors done.
“It’s good to finally get it all done and hopefully I can get on with playing football.
“It’s a club I’ve always looked out for being local. For me, at the moment, it’s the right time and the club’s only going in one direction.”
Manager Tim Flowers only had praise for his new player and looks forward to the impact Vaughan can have on the their season.
“He gives us a different type of option at right back. I’ve known Lee for quite a long time and Gary Whild’s probably known him even longer than I have.
“I’ve always thought that he is a Football League player and he has been. He brings a very attacking threat from right back or right wing-back.
“He’s another experienced player who’s been promoted out of this division, he’s a winner and he’s got an edge to him – in a good way.
“We’re delighted to have him around and on board for the next 18 months.”
Moors’ Sporting Director sees the signing as a further step in the right direction for Solihull this season.
“We are delighted to have been able to sign Lee who is well-known to our staff and some of our players,” he said.
“Vaughany is vastly experienced and is known as a dynamic player who can play either in the full back role or as a wing back.
“He will add competition to our squad and hopefully be a vital cog towards success in what has so far been an outstanding season.”
Vaughan will wear number 25 during his time at Moors.
