Winger Omari Sterling-James has signed a new contract with Solihull Moors.

Fresh from scoring 4 goals in his last two games, the 23-year-old has decided to commit his immediate future to the Moors by putting pen-to-paper on new terms.

The Birmingham-born talent joined Solihull in the summer following his release from League Two outfit Cheltenham Town having previously represented Alvechurch and Redditch United as well as loan spells at Oxford City and Gloucester City.

The former Birmingham City trainee has so far been a star performer this season having made twenty-seven appearances in all competitions with a return of 6 goals.

Commenting on the news, manager Liam McDonald said: “It’s good to be back working with Omari again having originally taken him from step five to step three when he joined me at Redditch from Alvechurch in 2013 before he went on to the Football League with Cheltenham.

“It’s an absolute pleasure working with a player of Omari’s ability and the next priority for me is to make him an even better player which is why we’ve given him a new contract.

“Omari has the potential to be a very good player and the challenge now is to make him more consistent. He’s shown his value to the team in our last two games (against Dagenham & Redbridge and Chester) where at times he was unplayable and scored great goals. He’s been fantastic and deserves all of the plaudits he’s been getting. Teams are fearing him at the moment because he’s not just good for scoring goals but creating them too.

“Omari’s playing with a smile on his face and enjoying his football at the moment which is always important but we want to keep him focused and help to make him an even better player.”

Sterling-James added: “I’m thoroughly enjoying my football at the moment and feel in a good place in my playing career here at Solihull.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Liam McDonald again and feel that this football club is going places which is why I decided to sign a new contract”.
