Liam McDonald named new EVO-STIK League Rushall Olympic Manager

The 32-year-old, who left the National League's Solihull Moors at the start of the October, was named on Monday as the successor to Wayne Thomas at Dales Lane. The former Worcester City, Hednesford Town, Barwell, Kettering Town and Tamworth midfielder, will be assisted by Nick Green, David Bridgwater and current Pics coach Trevor Burroughs.

Considered one of the brightest young coaching talents in the Non-League game since hanging up his playing boots at the age of 27, McDonald turned Redditch United into promotion candidates in the EVO-STIK Southern's Premier Division, guiding the club to the runners-up spot in 2015-16 before missing out on promotion via the play-offs.

After a spell at Hednesford Town last term taking the Pitmen to the top of the table in the EVO-STIK League Premier Division before Christmas, the new Pics boss moved on to keep Solihull Moors in the top flight of Non-League.

McDonald told Pics fans he is relishing his new challenge back in the EVO-STIK League in a 5pm statement confirming his appointment. "It' nice to get straight back in and I can't wait to get started," said the new manager.
