Solihull Moors have confirmed that Kyle Storer has been named as the first-team captain for the 2018/19 season.

Liam Daly has been named vice-captain, while Darren Carter, who held the armband last season, remains as club captain.

Storer, 31, arrived at the Automated Technology Group Stadium in January 2018 and went on to become an integral part of Moors’ great escape last season. He made 16 appearances, scoring his one and only goal to date for the club against Dover Athletic in a 3-2 victory.

A natural leader, Storer is vastly-experienced having amassed 500 senior appearances in his career and previously captained Cheltenham Town in the Football League and Kidderminster Harriers. He was part of the Robins side, along with Danny Wright, who won the National League title in the 2015/16 season.

On his appointment, Storer said: “The news got broken to me this morning by the gaffer and Gaz (Whild).

“I’m very delighted. I’ve been fortunate to captain every team I’ve played for so far, so it’s another honour.

“My game doesn’t change if I’m captain or not. I like to organise people around me and be vocal on the pitch.

“People take responsibility in different ways. Mine’s to talk to players, organise them, myself and my midfield. I’m happy to do it and I’m delighted to be given the role.

Manager Tim Flowers said: “Kyle Storer is a very experienced player, has got promoted out of this division and finished second with Kidderminster. He’s vocal, he’s got leadership qualities on the pitch so Kyle will do that.

“I’ve had a chat with Darren and he’s the recognisable face of Solihull Moors, if you like. He’s carrying a lot of weight on his shoulders and seems to be running round doing everything.

“I’ve got a lot of experienced lads here, so my view was to lighten the workload for them. Kyle, Darren and Liam Daly will form a sort of leadership trio. Liam’s a very popular man around the football club, with the supporters and has played x amount of games here.

“Liam will be involved at a vice-captain level. That trio are the representatives, if you like.

“There’s more leaders than that in the dressing room. I’m fortunate in the respect that I’ve got lads full of leadership quality and the younger ones look up to them.”
