  • Callum Reilly’s Career To Date

Callum Reilly is a product of the Birmingham City academy and made his professional debut aged just eighteen back in 2012 in the Championship. He made sixth appearances in total for the Blues, scoring twice as well as making eight appearances for the Republic Of Ireland U21s between 2013-2014.

Towards the back end of 2015, Reilly joined Burton Albion on loan which was then made permanent that summer. However, he only made fifteen appearances for the club before joining Coventry City on loan in January 2017. He was a regular with the Skyblues helping them achieve the EFL Trophy final but missed out on a winners medal due to an injury the previous day. He left Burton in June 2017. 

From there, Reilly signed for Bury FC and played almost half the season before again going out on loan, this time to Gillingham FC where he made fifteen appearances in total before making the loan permanent that summer. During the 2018/2019 season, Reilly scored five goals in twenty-five appearances and really stood out at The Gills which earned him a move to AFC Wimbledon.

At the Dons, he spent two years there making over fifty appearances and again scoring five goals as he became a key figure in their survival in League One. However, during the second season, injuries disrupted his season and he was released in Summer 2021. 

Last summer, Reilly joined League Two side Leyton Orient originally managed by the experienced Kenny Jackett but once again, injuries kept him out the side and he only managed a handful of appearances in total which opened up the option to leave on loan, which he now has. 

  • The Agreement In Detail

The original deal will see the twenty-eight year old, join Solihull Moors on an initial one month loan deal. However, there is an option for the Moors to extend that deal to cover the remainder of the season should they finish in the play-offs in the National League. 

It isn’t in the agreement, but Reilly’s contract at Leyton Orient expires this summer so there is potential to discuss a permanent option should he impress and should his parent club decide to let him go this summer. 

  • Callum Reilly’s Comments

“I’m delighted to get the deal done as Moors are a team having a really good season.”

“I grew up and live in the area so it’s a local club I’ve always looked out for and I’m looking forward to being part of the remaining games this season.”
