Solihull Moors boss Liam McDonald has returned to former club Hednesford Town for attacking midfielder Ashley Sammons and has also signed Kristian Green from the Pitmen`s Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division rivals Stourbridge.
A prolific midfielder, Sammons followed McDonald to Hednesford from Redditch United in May 2016.
Sammons is a product of the Birmingham City academy, where he captained the under-18’s to a FA Youth Cup semi-final in 2008/09 and made the bench for a number of Premier League games under Alex McLeish.
His first-team debut in the starting eleven came in a Carling Cup tie away at Sunderland in 2009.
Injury disrupted his Birmingham career and he joined Hereford United after his contract expired at St Andrews.
He scored one goal in nine appearances for the Bulls, before a brief spell at Worcester City.
He then spent four seasons with Redditch, scoring 20 goals in the league in 2015/16 and surpassing his equally impressive total of 17 during 2013/14.
Despite United failing to finish in the play-offs last term, Sammons ended the campaign in style with 4 goals in his last four games, including a double on the final day against Arlesey Town.
He joined Corby Town in June 2015 but, after a blistering start in which he scored 6 goals and was named the division’s player of the month for August, work commitments meant he found the travelling difficult and he returned to Redditch in November.
Sammons has also represented his country at under-17 level, playing for England against Finland, Sweden and Iceland in the 2007 Nordic Tournament.
An energetic right-sided defender or wing-back, Green joined Stourbridge from Halesowen Town in the summer of 2015.
He enjoyed a highly successful 2012/13 season with Gornal Athletic before making the step up to join Halesowen in the summer of 2013.
He quickly impressed for the Yeltz as they secured the NPL First Division South title in 2013/14.
Another fine campaign at Premier Division level the following season saw him named as a joint winner of the players’ player of the year award by Halesowen.
