Solihull Moors in move for Jake Edwards

SOLIHULL Moors are hoping to tempt former Exeter City striker Jake Edwards to join them.

SOLIHULL Moors are hoping to tempt former Exeter City striker Jake Edwards to join them.

Edwards featured for Moors this week and netted in their 2-1 defeat against a youthful Blues side.

Previously with Blue Square North rivals Tamworth, Edwards featured prominently for Burton Albion last season during their promotion push for Football League status – but has since been released by the Brewers.

Moors are optimistic Edwards will agree terms with them, especially as he lives locally in Dickens Heath.

Manager Bob Faulkner is also considering bringing striker Gary McPhee back to Damson Park as well.

It would be McPhee’s second spell under Faulkner, who initially sold him to Nuneaton Borough for an undisclosed four-figure fee.

Originally with Coventry City, McPhee’s star has waned somewhat in recent times and the striker spent last season having spells with Stratford Town and Bromsgrove Rovers.

Moors chairman Nigel Collins said: “Gary has been struck with injuries of late, but now he’s able to get fit again and we’ll see what he can really do.’’

Rivals Redditch United are set to offer Moors central defender Lee Ayres terms.

Ayres has featured for Reds in part of their pre-season programme. He also had a spell under Reds boss Gary Whild while out on loan to Stourport Swifts when on Kidderminster Harriers’ books.

Ayres also attracted interest from Mansfield Town following their relegation from the Football League.

The Stags have also been running the rule over Kidderminster trio Michael Blackwood, Alex Jeannin and Gavin Hurren, all of whom were released by manager Mark Yates this summer.
