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.”
