*An in-depth look into the youth ranks at Solihull Moors - by James Williams*
Solihull Juniors has seen a ‘superb improvement’ since Steve Hensel has took on the responsibility of both the U18’s and U19s, says Director of Sport, Mark Fogarty.

“The turnover in results has been great. The work from Steve Hensel, Tony Lalor and Dexter Hewitt has seen the juniors make excellent progress and there has been a superb improvement all round.”

The U18s recently played in their highly anticipated quarter-final tie against Mickleover Sports Football Club, which lived up to expectation.

Moors came out victorious in a 3-2 victory – which saw goals from Bridges, Taylor and Bour with the winning strike in what was a momentous coup for the team.

Mark Fogarty, Youth and Junior Director of Sport, said: “It was a great game of football. The winner from James Bour was a great moment, but for me, the man-of-the-match performance from youngster Jack Harris was very superb – a stand out.

“Harris has been outstanding for us in the last couple of months and it really showed with that inspiring performance in a very important game for the football club.”

On the juniors’ progress, Mark Fogarty reaped the praise from Steve Hensel’s endeavour and commitment, which has seen him take control of “not only his U19’s, but the U18’s squad as well” and combined them “all as one”.

“The work has seen improvement, which is what we all strive for here. The combination of the U18’s and U19’ squads has allowed the team to learn together and it has also given players the chance to learn from players from a wholly different squad.”

The progress has also seen the Moors’ reserves take a top two position in BCFC League, where their latest game was a 3-0 win against Birmingham City.

Goals from Romario Martin, Callum Coyle and Jerome Clarke shifted Moors hope of clinching the league title into reality before their crucial top of the table clash with Coventry City on March 4th, however the reserves agonisingly failed to take advantage and slumped to a 3-2 defeat.

Overall, the youth and junior teams have taken stride under new leadership, with progression a clear factor under their impressive achievements. If these players continue to impress officials there could be a few take that leap into the first team next season.
