New Moseley Rugby Club Stand
New Moseley Rugby Club Stand

New Stand & Clubhouse Opens

The club saw the first use of their brand new multi-million pound stand and clubhouse facility on Saturday 18th April where they soundly beat Plymouth Albion (29-0) in the last Greene King IPA Championship game of the season. As part of the day the clubhouse hosted their annual Players Association lunch which included many notable ex-players including former internationals. A fitting first event for this important development.

As well as providing 700 covered seats for supporters in the stand, the clubhouse will be hired out for business conferences, exhibitions and private functions such as weddings, dinners and parties, seating up to 250 people. In addition, the newly opened City of Birmingham Bowls facility will allow the club to extend seated events to up to 700 people. The club believes this will allow them to offer a unique facility of this size in the South Birmingham area.

Enquiries for bookings of the new facility should be directed to Bill Redwood, General Manager on 07515 294312 or via info@moseleyrugby.co.uk

Birmingham’s first full time Rugby Academy

The club is also pleased to announce the establishment of the first and only full-time Rugby Academy in Birmingham, which will commence this September. The programme is aimed at developing elite young sportsmen for a career in sport, by studying for academic qualifications and playing in a professional sporting environment.

Students aged 16-18 years will study together at the club’s Billesley Common home, where they will benefit from the use of the recently built new grandstand. First class facilities are available to students to enable them to improve as players and enhance their theoretical knowledge.

The Rugby Academy will offer students the chance to embark on a level 2 or 3 BTEC programme and include additional Maths and English where required. A typical week will comprise roughly half each of academic study and rugby skills with fitness and conditioning.

The Academy squad will compete on the Moseley 1st team pitch in the West Midlands Performance league with matches taking place on Wednesdays. Players will be encouraged to develop both their rugby and their own coaching skills throughout the programme and expand skills required for their chosen progression route.

If you or someone you know might be interested in applying to the Moseley Rugby Academy please come along to Moseley Rugby Club on Tuesday 28th April from 6.00-8.00 pm.
