Simon Redhead has been appointed assistant manager at Solihull Moors with Tim Colledge joining the backroom staff as head of physiotherapy.
Redhead, the former Redditch United manager, joined the club 12 months ago as the under-21’s manager as well as being part of the first-team set-up.
He will now work even closer with boss Marcus Bignot.
“I’m delighted to take this opportunity with Marcus and Solihull Moors,’’ said Redhead.
‘‘Having worked here for the past 12 months I have seen first-hand the professionalism and dedication of all the staff and players. I am excited by the challenge and genuinely feel we have a squad and set-up capable of challenging for honours.’’
Karl Broadhurst steps down from his role as assistant manager by mutual agreement.
Colledge is also no stranger to the current squad as he was Moors’ Under-21’s physio last season as well as helping to treat the first-team players whenever possible.
He will provide round-the-clock care for all players through his new clinic, located at the club.
“I’m really excited for the challenge ahead, in what will hopefully be a successful year for us at Solihull Moors,’’ he said.
‘‘When Marcus was discussing his vision for the club, alongside the other great people already there, it was something I wanted to be involved in.
“I am amongst a group of people that have recently set up BeMoreUK, a physio and sports therapy clinic, which is open to the general public.
‘‘This new venture is a part of Marcus’ vision of assisting the players with a full-time provision for physiotherapy and injury management, which we hope will be of benefit for the players and the club.’’
Colledge will take over from Pete Denham.
Completing the Moors first-team staff are newly-appointed coach Mark Fogarty, as well as returning staff members Darren Acton (goalkeeping coach), sports scientist Francis Bunce and kit manager James Bradley.
“I am excited by the management structure we now have in place,’’ said Bignot. ‘‘Everybody involved is striving to build and progress the whole club further.’’
n Moors have kept ticket prices at the same level as last season.
Admission remains at £9 for adults, £5 for concessions with under-12s free when accompanied by an adult while season tickets are still £160, £85 for concessions. Under-16s pay just £20 and under-12s will again be able to claim a free season ticket when bought with an adult one.
