Solihull Moors have completed the re-signing of former captain and fans favourite Liam Daly from Kidderminster Harriers.

The 29-year-old originally left the Moors in June to join full-time Kidderminster Harriers, after being offered a lucrative contract by the National League North side.

After five appearances for the Harriers, the defender has now made a sensational return to the Automated Technology Group Stadium, in what will be his third spell at Solihull.

Solihull Moors boss Liam McDonald was understandably delighted with the news and told the club’s official website: ‘I’m sure all supporters will acknowledge that this is a huge signing for us.

‘Before his departure to Kidderminster, Liam was pivotal to my plans and was a massive part of our vision moving forward so it was a blow, albeit understandable, for us when he left.

‘That move hasn’t worked out as Liam would have hoped but he has brought into what we have planned at this football club and is eager to play a part in the next chapter as we strive to establish ourselves as a Vanarama National League club.’

‘It’s been a tough start to the season with the amount of injuries we’ve had so Liam`s return is a massive shot in the arm. Hopefully we’ll soon be back to full strength and begin to produce the results we’re capable of.’

Daly himself also spoke of his delight at his return to the Moors adding: ‘I’m delighted to be back. Leaving was tough and it was only down to the circumstances that I had to leave. I’d just had a child and the contract that Kidderminster offered me was too good to turn down at the time. I didn’t want to leave Solihull in the first place.

‘The move only came about today and I can’t say a bad word about Kidderminster, they’ve let me leave the club on good terms.

‘Once I spoke with Liam (McDonald), who I’ve always kept a good relationship with, it was a no brainer. Me and Liam get on very well.

‘I’ve been keeping an eye on the results and some haven’t gone the way you’d have wanted them too but you’ve got to remember that there are key players out at the moment.

‘Having myself back with the group and a few others back fit, I can’t see why results can’t change round rapidly.

‘I’ve only missed five of the games so nothing changes for me. I come straight back and I just can’t wait to get going. Nothing bad has happened at Kiddy, it just hasn’t worked for me.

‘At Solihull, the club know what I’m good at and I know what I’m good at doing for the club. I just want to get back in and start now.’

‘The aim for me is to keep Solihull in the league and I have no doubt that we will do that. The team looks very strong and I can’t see why results won’t come quickly.

‘The move has made me excited about football again. Deep down I didn’t want to leave in the first place and Solihull did try to keep me.

‘I’m quite close with the Solihull Moors’ fans personally and I had a lot of messages wishing me all the best. I just hope that this will give the club a boost to kick on and I can’t wait to get going.’

Daly will wear the number 26 for the Moors.
