Here’s your round-up for this week’s National League news, featuring Barrow, Bromley, and Solihull Moors.

Moore leaves Barrow

Neil Hornby has taken caretaker charge of Barrow following the departure of Micky Moore from his managerial role with the club.

Moore initially took charge on an interim basis in August before signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with the club in late September.

Since then, Barrow have taken one point from their four league games and lost to seventh-tier side Shaw Lane in the final round of qualification for the FA Cup last weekend.

Chairman Paul Casson said: “We are all disappointed that it hasn’t worked out. Micky inherited a difficult situation and he gave his all.”

Bromley sign former Wolves defender

Former Wolves, Birmingham, and Cardiff City centre-back Rodger Johnson has signed a short-term deal with Bromley.

Johnson was released by League One side Charlton at the end of June, and has been a free agent ever since.

The 34-year-old started as Bromley defeated Dover 3-0 to qualify for the first round of the FA Cup proper on Saturday.

Moors make double signing

Solihull Moors have completed the signing of left-back James Bown from Hereford FC and the re-signing of Akwasi Asante from Grimsby Town.

Asante scored 21 goals as the Moors won promotion to the National League in the 2015/16 season, before departing for the Mariners in January. He has re-joined his former side on loan until the new year.

21-year-old Bowen has agreed a permanent deal until the end of the season, and began his career with Cheltenham Town in League Two. He is also capable of playing as a winger.
