The new and improved three-year contracts are set to keep them with Moors until the summer of 2022. As Flowers stepped up to take charge last season, having worked as assistant to Mark Yates in 2017/18, the team massively confounded expectations.

After the great escape of the year before, Moors sustained an unlikely title challenge and finished runners-up to Leyton Orient, before losing to AFC Fylde in the play-off semi-final. The club also reached the second round of the FA Cup and the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy.

Former England goalkeeper and Premier League winner Flowers featured in depth on Non-League Daily on the eve of the season, which you can find here.

Chairman Darryl Eales told the club’s website: “I’m sure everyone connected with the club will be delighted that Tim, Gaz and Quinny have accepted and signed extended contracts. It was certainly one of the easier decisions we’ve had to make as a board!

“Personally, they are a pleasure to work with, characterised by their professionalism, attention to detail and desire to win. We are all determined to build on last season’s exploits and develop the club sustainably both on and off the pitch.

“At its heart, the club is community-based, and Tim, Gaz and Quinny share this community vision as well as the ambition and determination to eventually gain Football League status.”

Flowers said: “On behalf of myself and my staff, we are all absolutely delighted to have committed our future to Solihull Moors. The club has found itself moving in the right direction over the last 18 months, culminating into a second-place league finish, third round draw of the FA Cup, and quarter-final of the FA Trophy.

“Improving on that won’t be easy and it’s a massive challenge, but a challenge that we are relishing and looking forward to pushing Solihull Moors on.”
