Nigel Collins, chairman of Blue Square Bet North club Solihull Moors, has announced that Marcus Bignot has been…
….appointed as the man to replace Mickey Moore as manager.
Bignot was appointed assistant-manager towards the end of last season and is seen as the natural successor.
He is a vastly experienced player at both Football League and non-League level. He also represented England at semi-professional level.
Collins was keen to emphasise that, despite considerable interest, it was decided to stick to the club`s tried and tested methods by appointing from within.
Collins said: “It must be remembered that our sadly missed manager Bob Faulkner was also chosen from within and went on to be one of the Midlands outstanding managers.
“With the majority of the players signed with the knowledge of Marcus it was the natural choice to continue the good work from last year.”
Bignot will appoint his assistant in the next few days.
