Former Norwich City academy director Richard Money has resigned as Solihull Moors manager after less than a month in charge.

The 62-year-old was appointed boss at the Midlands club on October 4 and during his four league games in charge he picked up one victory.

However, Moors are currently bottom of the Vanarama National League following Saturday’s 4-0 defeat at home to AFC Fylde.

A club statement said: “Solihull Moors are disappointed that Richard’s short time in charge has ended so soon and will commence the search for a replacement immediately.”

“There are so many people at this club who have worked so hard to get it to the level it is playing at right now and it deserves to stay there,” he said.

“To do so it needs someone who can fully commit to the clubs future and unfortunately I am unable to do that right now. I wish everyone, board, players and supporters every success and thank them for their help, kindness and understanding.”

Money left the Canaries in August as their academy manager to get back into senior football. Steve Weaver was announced as Money’s replacement in September, joining from sporting director Stuart Webber’s former club Huddersfield Town.
