PETER Denham admitted that it was a ‘gut wrench’ decision to leave his position at Solihull Moors after walking out on the club this week.
The long-serving physio left Damson Park citing the need for a fresh challenge as his main reason for turning his back on the Blue Square North outfit.
Denham’s departure comes just days after Joe Murphy resigned his position as Football Secretary.
But the 37-year-old insists that he wants to stay in football and is already planning his next move.
“It has been a really difficult decision to make because I’ve been involved with Moor Green [one of the teams that merged to become Solihull Moors] nearly all my life,” he said.
“Ultimately I feel like I need a fresh challenge although it’s a gut wrench to back away.”
“As a young boy I used to watch Moor Green with my grandad who followed them in the 1930’s.
“The merger was exciting although it was sad to see the ground itself knocked down because it’s less than a mile from my home.
“I met a lot of good people in my time but I feel that moving on is the only sensible way forward.”
Moors are preparing for their third season since the merger of Solihull Borough and Moor Green.
Last season’s 16th place finish saw Moors survive relegation by six points but Bob Faulkner will be hoping a summer re-shuffle helps his side move up the table in the next campaign.
