Moseley Players Association
Anyone who has played for ANY Moseley team, including Moseley Oak and MWRFC, is able to join the MPA and is most welcome. This includes those who have had a significant involvement with managing, coaching or providing on-field care for the players and who are therefore an essential part of the wider playing team.
The MPA plays a key role in keeping former players involved in the club and providing both help and advice to all areas of the club. If you’d like to help in the continuing Moseley revival – use any of the contacts below for further information.

Annual Reunion & AGM –
The annual reunion & AGM will usually coincide with the last home match of the season. Former players are warmly invited to Billesley for the AGM and annual reunion. This is a great chance to meet up with former playing colleagues. The lunch is also open to guests and others involved in Moseley over the years whether from a playing, administrative or supportive perspective. We expect a bumper attendance for the lunch and all the usual festivities and the AGM, the match and evening entertainment. We particularly look forward to welcoming former players who haven’t yet visited our new home at Billesley.

Anyone who has coached, managed, medically attended to or otherwise been essential to a team’s playing activities, such as 4th officials and touch judges can also become a member in the same way.

What is the MPA? Essentially it’s a network of connections, within the Birmingham Moseley family. A network which tries to keep anyone who has contributed to the club in touch with the club and with each other, enabling them to continue meeting socially during the many years after they have stopped playing. But it’s much more than that…
MPA organises social events, such as…
- An Annual Reunion Lunch
- Autumn Supper
- Annual Remembrance Day Service at the Club Memorial
- There’s also a hospitality box at First team home games, available for all MPA members to use.
MPA Contributes to all areas of the club by …
- Raising substantial amounts of money – over £23,000 in the last 3 years – which supports the club infrastructure e.g. Watt Bike, Gym Equipment, Analysis Camera, Trophy Cabinet
- Administration of the ‘300 Club Draw’ which directly supports the development of rugby at the club with financial assistance.
- Administration of the ‘David Cathcart Memorial Fund’, providing grants for Youth Section players who need extra support
- Providing a route for getting up-to-date news on the activities of the club and former players.
