Let's Make Moor Memories Says Solihull Boss Whing

Andy Whing and his Solihull Moors players got a real taste of the big time last weekend.

Now the manager has challenged his players to try to get promoted and play against clubs like Bolton Wanderers more often.

It wasn’t to be for them last Saturday, eventually going down 4-0, pictured, but despite the result the whole afternoon gave everyone at the club an appetite for more.

Whing’s team are well placed after a poor season last year, sitting fourth in the National League table.

Now they can show the country how much they’ve improved as they and the TNT Sports cameras head to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

Problem is they are playing a side they haven’t beaten in five years - and one who are in great form right now.

After a dreadful first few months, the Daggers won for a third time in four matches at Dorking Wanderers last weekend.

Whing says it will be a big test of his team’s promotion staying power and said: “It’s a massive, massive game for us now.

“Our soul focus is on the league now. I’m really looking forward to get back to it down at Dagenham

“We looked at Bolton and what they are and I’ve told the lads that we want our game to try and get somewhere near that level.

“I’m still really excited about what we can do. I want us to use the FA Cup game are a bit of inspiration.

“We want to try and be having games like this on a regular basis. Hopefully we can use it to push us forward,” he told the club’s video player.

Daggers manager Ben Strevens is thrilled with his club’s upturn in fortunes over the past three weeks.

They are now 13th but their home form needs improvement - they’ve lost four of the last five matches in front of their own fans.

“We’re getting results away from home now but we need to back that up at our place,” he said after six home losses already.
