Birmingham Moseley announce new additions to squad

First XV // Thursday 6th February 2020

Adam Balding has bolstered his squad with the capture of three new players with Premiership and Championship experience.

Beck Cutting a hooker joins on a dual registration deal from Worcester Warriors.

Beck represented England at Under 20 level, playing in the 2017/2018 Six Nations competition. He also featured in the World Rugby Under 20 Championship scoring in their win against Scotland.

He made appearances for The Warriors in the Anglo Welsh Cup, Premiership Rugby Cup and European Challenge Cup.

Born in Slough and educated at Bromsgrove School he played for England under 18’s and Bath University. Recently he has had spells at Bishops Stortford and Hartpury on dual registration.

Joining Beck are two players on loan deals until the end of the season.

Chester Duff, a winger with exceptional pace arrives from Ealing Trailfinders. Chester gained a reputation while at Leeds Becket University where he was selected to play in the England 7’s student team. Chester joined Ealing Trailfinders from Ayr earlier in the season.

James Forrester a centre arrives from Hartpury College, another player with pace at his disposal. Boasting International status having played 7’s for the Zimbabwe team he will bring a new dimension to the back line.

Adam Balding, Director of Rugby said:

“ We are now two thirds of the way into the season and some of our players have played every minute of every game and that of course takes its toll. I am delighted therefore that I have been able to bring in these three quality players to strengthen our squad for the tough games ahead.

The game against Canterbury on Saturday was a significant turning point for us, it was our first win away from home since last September. This relieves the pressure on ourselves and acts as the catalyst to get the run of results we are capable of achieving. Although the results have gone against us over the last few weeks, in the second half of the season we have gained bonus points in all but one game.   This result builds on that and will lift everyone at the club. Our loyal support both home and away is second to none in this league, the players and management appreciate that and we look forward to a strong end to the season”
