Moors quick to snap up Jake Sedgemore

SOLIHULL Moors have pulled off a major coup by signing central midfielder Jake Sedgemore.

SOLIHULL Moors have pulled off a major coup by signing central midfielder Jake Sedgemore.

The versatile 29-year-old has been snapped up by Bob Faulkner after leaving Blue Square Premier side Altrincham at the end of last season.

Sedgemore is no stranger to the Midlands as he was born in Wolverhampton and his presence will bring a wealth of experience after previous stints at Shrewsbury, Kidderminster and Burton Albion.

New Moors chairman Nigel Collins is delighted with the signing and will be hoping the former West Bromwich Albion trainee will prove a valuable asset to the squad.

"We're looking at Jake as a major signing," Collins admitted. "He wanted to leave full-time football and concentrate on business interests."

Sedgemore joins Micky Tuohy at Damson Park after the right-back was Faulkner's first summer capture.

Dogged by injuries last year, the promising 20-year-old will be hoping to prove his worth and force his way into the long-serving manager's first team plans.

Meanwhile talisman Danny Davidson has joined rivals Alfreton Town after two years in Solihull. The move was decided by the giant striker so that he could be closer to his home in Derby. Richard Follitt has also left the club to re-locate to the North-East. ..SUPL:
