Solihull Moors' players and coaching staff have agreed to take a 25 per cent reduction in salary for three months.

In late-March, chairman Darryl Eales confirmed that the club’s staff would receive March and April salaries in full, with all staff on furlough. In the latest update from the club, the following has been explained: "After discussions between the players, manager and the board, coaching staff and first-team players have collectively agreed to take a 25 per cent reduction in their salaries for three months to assist the club during this period of uncertainty and, in particular, help ensure that the club can pay all other staff in full during the furlough period.

"Alongside this, several directors and shareholders have agreed to donate £20,000 to the Solihull Moors Foundation, the club’s charitable arm, through which Moors is able to proactively help and support the local community."

After finishing 2nd in last season's National League, Moors have been in promotion contention again, and were three points outside the play-off places (with a game in hand on Stockport County in the last position) prior to last month's season suspension.
