Solihull Moors have confirmed that Tim Flowers will be stepping up to the role of first-team manager.
The 51-year-old, who famously won the Premiership title with Blackburn Rovers in 1995, had been brought in last November alongside boss Mark Yates. With the pair helping ensure survival in the Vanarama National League despite Moors’ perilous position when they took over, Yates this week took over the reins at League Two Macclesfield Town.
The club have therefore announced that former goalkeeper Flowers, an 11-cap international with England, will be stepping up as manager. Assisting Flowers will be Gary Whild.
Flowers told Moors’ website:
“The great escape ranks as one of my biggest achievement in football and now to have the opportunity to build on everything we achieved last season is the icing on the cake. I would like to thank the board for their confidence, both in me and Gary Whild, with whom I have an excellent working relationship.
“With the pre-season games scheduled in less than three weeks there is much to do and I cannot wait to get started.”
