MOORS have their biggest game in their history on Saturday as they take on Conference side York City in the first round proper of the FA Trophy.

York play in the Blue Square Premier, a tier above Moors, and Solihull will travel to Bootham Crescent for a 3pm kick off.

Moors chairman Nigel Collins said: “It’s our biggest game ever, certainly since we merged six years ago.

“We’re going to have a good day and have a good shot at it. We going there confident, but not over confident.

“We’re bound to be underdogs, but we’re going to have a good go at it.”

On Tuesday night Solihull failed to take their chances away to Histon, with Richard Walker having the best opportunity on 25 minutes.

Daniel Sparkes put the home team in front a minute later and the game went from bad to worse for Solihull when Histon’s Dan Holman made the most of poor communication from Danny Spencer and Jas Singh, and slotted the ball into an empty net on 35 minutes.

Man of the match for Histon, Jim Stevenson, added a third on 49 minutes.

On Saturday Moors recorded a 5-1 win over Harrogate Town in the league.

Dominic Langdon opened the scoring on 37 minutes before Lee Morris skipped infront of the Harrogate keeper and headed home from a corner to double Moors lead on 55 minutes.

Stuart Pierpoint headed home for number three on 63 minutes. Harrogate scored from a freekick for a consolation goal in the 77th minute, but Moors went on the offensive again and Jordan Fitzpatrick scored from 12 yards to make it 4-1 on 84 minutes.

Fitzpatrick sealed the win for Solihull in injury time with a 35 yard blockbuster of a shot.
