National League side Solihull Moors have appointed former Ipswich, Birmingham and Norwich striker Keith Bertschin as their new head coach.

The 60-year-old comes in following Marcus Bignot's departure to take over League Two club Grimsby Town on Monday.

Bertschin has previously worked as Steve Bruce's assistant at Birmingham, Wigan, Sunderland and Hull City.

His first match in charge of the Moors, who are 15th in the table, will be Saturday's home game against Dover.

The club say Bertschin will be supported by captain Theo Streete, goalkeeping coach Darren Acton and academy manager Mark Fogarty for Saturday's game, but that a further coaching appointment will be made "in the near future".

Bignot's assistant Micky Moore has also left the club to move to Grimsby.
