Liam McDonald has vowed to move Rushall Olympic out of trouble after the club this week unveiled the former Solihull Moors manager as their surprise new boss.
McDonald has dropped two divisions after recently leaving Moors – where he has been replaced by ex-Saddlers boss Richard Money.
After parting company with Solihull by mutual consent just two weeks ago after a year in charge, McDonald planned to take a break from the game.
But said the opportunity at Rushall – top-half regulars in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier for the past few seasons but struggling so far this campaign, sitting second-bottom – was too good to turn down.
McDonald said: “It’s nice to get straight back in and I can’t wait to get started. This is a good, well-run football club and I’ll be working with an exciting group of young players that I will be looking to develop.
“It’s a challenge that I face with relish and I feel that I can get the club moving up the table.
“I have a lot of respect for the chairman (John Allen); he’s been in the game a long time and I am looking to forward to working with him for the first time.
“I was preparing to take a break from football, to be honest, but I had a really positive conversation with the chairman and watched the recent game against Barwell.”
