Richard Money was installed as Solihull Moors pretty quickly following Liam McDonald’s departure on Wednesday.

Tuesday night was embarrassing on the whole and a repeat performance will ensure several players are moved on as Money aims to turn things around.

Hartlepool United may be one of the biggest clubs in the division but they have started the season slowly, sitting in 15th position having won just 5 of their 14 matches since relegation.

Can we defy the odds? Let’s hope so!

Vital Quotes:
Darren Carter is hoping to impress potential new supporters:

Player to watch: Oladapo Afoloyan

Regardless of how we perform, Oladapo Afolayan always seems alive. An absolute joy to watch and out stand-out this season.
