Birmingham Moseley announce new Director of Rugby
Birmingham Moseley are delighted to announce former England ‘A’ and England 7’s back row Adam Balding as its new Director of Rugby.
Adam brings a wealth of experience at both International and Premiership level, he has toured Argentina with England ‘A’ and has represented England at every age level. He was also selected for the World 7’s Series in Chile and Argentina.
Currently Balding is Head Coach at Cinderford RFC a role he has occupied since May 2016. During his first season at the club he steered the just relegated side to a respectable 7th place in National League 2. The following year he led them to promotion back into National 1, losing only one game along the way.
Adam Balding said:
“Cinderford is a club which is not only traditional but also embraces all of the core values of grass roots rugby, this is magnified through DOR Paul Morris who I personally want to thank.
Over the past 3 and a half years I have enjoyed an incredible journey working alongside such a special group of players, coaches and back room staff which has seen great success both on & off the field.
Birmingham Moseley is a huge club steeped in history and success, seeing many top class players pull on the prestigious jersey over the years. The challenge ahead of the 2019-20 season is great with a lot of hard work to be done but I am extremely excited to be getting started.”
John Richards, Director, Birmingham Moseley Rugby said:
“I am delighted to welcome Adam to our club and very much look forward to working with him. While his primary focus will be our 1stXV his brief will also include the progress and success of Moseley Oak and our Academy”.
