This morning Solihull Moors have confirmed Liam McDonald as their new manager.

The 31 year old has been appointed following an impressive spell at Evo-Stik Premier side Hednesford Town.

Having taken over at Keys Park in May, he has lead Town to the play-off positions. In his first managerial role, he was credited with turning around Evo-Stik Southern Premier side Redditch United. Taking them from mid-table to promotion contenders, and Worcestershire Cup winners, within 3 years.

McDonald’s incredible start to his managerial career has caught the eye of Solihull, and they believe he is the ideal candidate to follow on from the good work started by former boss Marcus Bignot.

Following his step up to the National League, McDonald will be able to draw on the experience of recently appointed Head Coach Keith Bertschin. He will also be joined by some of his Hednesford backroom staff, Nick Green and David Bridgwater.

Speaking to the club’s website, the former Non-League player said,

“At the age of 31, the opportunity to manage Solihull was just too good to turn down”

“I’m a young, ambitious manager who’s excited to carry on the good work Marcus Bignot has done over the years because he’s transformed this club.”

“After speaking with the club, in particular Jed McCrory, the ideas and what they are strive to achieve at this football club made me want to be part of it. The experience guys like Jed have are invaluable not only to the future of Solihull Moors but also my development.”

McDonald will be getting straight to work, as he prepares for Solihull’s FA Cup replay against League Two Yeovil Town on Tuesday night.
