FOOTBALL - Redditch United midfielder Soleman signs on for next season

REDDITCH United have agreed terms with Aram Soleman to keep the midfielder at the club for the 2024/25 season.

The 24-year-old is currently the club’s longest-serving player following his arrival in December 2021 and recovered from an ACL injury sustained in the 2022/23 season.

Soleman scored six goals in 36 appearances last season including the winner against rivals Bromsgrove Sporting at the Valley Stadium in January.

Redditch manager Tim Flowers said: “I’ve known Aram for a long time, he was at Solihull Moors as a very young lad when I was there as manager and I’ve followed his career since.

“I remember he played against me when I was at Stratford and he was absolutely outstanding. I know all about him, he’s strong, combative, physical and just a really nice lad. He’s got a goal in him alongside his technical ability.

“Again, he was a part of that core dressing room spirit that we all know existed last season. I’m absolutely delighted and again, he was another lad who had options as I’m sure we all know, but has chosen to stay with us and most of these lads are doing so for less money which is just a testament to last season and what we have as a football club. I’m delighted to have him.”




Soleman added: “It’s a special time at the club right now, and I wanted to be a part of this new chapter of the club. We had a successful season and I want to push on and build on that.

“The club is heading in the right direction. The fans turning up, the players, staff and how we are performing – the club is going upwards.


“Of course, I want to contribute, help the team to score more goals and win games. I set myself personal targets last year and will do so again this year.

“Scoring more is definitely one of them. Being injured two seasons ago, I worked hard to get myself fit and get back into the team. I feel physically fit and want to hit the ground running when the season starts.

“I’m proud to be the longest-serving player at the club and I want to thank the fans for their support whilst I’ve been here. There’s been ups and downs but as a club, we’re in a good moment.”
