Town 0 Solihull Moors 2

Returning to the MoodChimp Stadium on Saturday after three consecutive away games Town faced the most high profile opposition of  their pre-season programme in National League side Solihull Moors.

With several key players ruled out through injury and/or holidays including Guy Clark, James Fry,  Andy Gallinagh and Loyiso Recci it was a tough task for Town against a Moors line-up which included former Town Youth player Jack Edwards, but they weren’t overawed and half time was reached with the game still goal-less.

The Moors upped their tempo after the break with ex-Birmingham City midfielder Darren Carter firing them ahead on the hour mark with a long range special followed by Jermaine Hylton   –  who was at Swindon Town last season having previously been at Redditch United  –  adding their second with a clinical finish seven minutes later.

Town wind up their schedule of  pre-season friendlies with home games against Bromsgrove Sporting on Tuesday August 1st and Sutton Coldfield Town next Saturday (August 5th).
