Though the Lilywhites have played both Solihull Borough and Moor Green on many ocassions in league matches, neither club at that time were playing in Solihull itself. They were actually at that time sharing Moor Green's ground in Hall Green. So it was not until they played Solihull Moors in 2007 that they first really played in Solihull.

Proposed new home of Solihull Borough F.C. (1994)


Solihull Borough

Founded at the Lincoln's Cafe in Acocks Green in 1951 and orignally named as Lincoln F.C. they became Solihull Borough in 1965. They originally played their matches in Widney Lane, Solihull, which remained their home until 1988 when they were then forced to sell off their ground to property developers having run into finanicial problems. Solihull Borough then went to ground share with near neighbours, Moor Green, in Hall Green. It was here they played all their homes matches against the Lilywhites. After ten years sharing with Moor Green, they moved in 1998 to share with Redditch before finally moving in 2000 to their own ground, Damson Park, having purchased a former golf driving range, Damson Park.
