Ardley’s Out As Moors Must Make Managerial Change

Solihull Moors says they are “disappointed” to announce the departure of Neal Ardley.

The manager, 50, leaves the club almost exactly two years after taking over.

In 2022 the former Notts County and Wimbledon boss guided the club into the National League Promotion Final, eventually losing out to Grimsby Town.

Last season was challenging as they failed to put in a sustained bid for the EFL - but a number of summer signings hinted at better things to come.

However the club will be under new management next season after Ardley’s exit was today made public.

Moors will immediately begin their hunt for a replacement with the players set to report for pre-season next week.

A statement confirmed: “Solihull Moors is disappointed to announce that manager, Neal Ardley, has left the club by mutual consent, with immediate effect.”

Chairman Darryl Eales says things are amicable as the club search for their new boss.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Neal over the past two seasons,” he said.

“He has overseen our continued push as a club to punch above our weight and operate to the highest professional standards.

“He led the club to our best ever season in 2021/22 where we reached the National League Promotion Final and generally introduced a fast paced, style of play which is attractive on the eye and has been at the forefront of our player development philosophy.

“This is an amicable and respectful parting of the ways, wholly consistent with Neal’s values and character, and I wish him every success in the future.”
