Osborne extends Moors stay

Solihull Moors are delighted to announce that midfielder Jamey Osborne has signed a contract extension with the club.

The 27-year-old was due to be out of contract next summer but has now extended his stay at the SportNation.bet Stadium until June 2022.

Osborne is in his second spell with the club after initially joining from Redditch United in 2016. He previously departed to play in the Football League with Grimsby Town, where he made 21 appearances but returned midway through the 2017/18 season.

A firm-favourite with the Solihull supporters, Osborne’s flair and creativity in the attacking third of the field has made him a key cog in Tim Flowers’ side.

He is primed to make his 100th appearance in yellow and blue against Aldershot Town tomorrow afternoon.

In his previous 99 outings for the Moors, Osborne has scored 16 goals – two of which came in Tuesday evening’s 3-0 victory at home to Torquay.

After signing his two-year extension, Osborne said: “I’m delighted. I wanted to do it sooner rather than later.

“It’s something that we first spoke about last season, but we put it to one side, and we spoke about it in the summer.

“It’s unbelievable where the club was 18 months ago to now. The club’s only going one way and I think that’s a massive thing as to why I wanted to commit myself to the club for another few years.”

Manager Tim Flowers said: “We’re delighted to have secured Jamey’s signature for the next two years after this one.

“He’s been an integral part of the team and I consider him to be one of the best footballers in the National League.

“He’s an outstanding player but also a great person to have around. He’s the type of person we want around the club and to build a team around.”

Chairman Darryl Eales added: “We are delighted to have secured Jamey on a longer-term basis.

“Not only is he a great player but he is a superb ambassador for the club in the community.”
