Two former internationals centre Alex Grove (Scotland) and back row forward Jacques le Roux (Portugal) joined the squad, captained by Greg King. The campaign began with a victory in wet conditions at Fylde before the contest for the Moseley Trophy was renewed for the first time in seven seasons when, in a close encounter, Coventry were defeated 19-14. There was then a narrow away win at Hull Ionians, a comfortable home victory against Blaydon and a first defeat of the season at Ampthill and District. The club’s next opponents, at Billesley Common, were Cambridge who were defeated 72-14, the home side scoring 11 tries. The next fixture was at Rosslyn Park where Birmingham Moseley narrowly wion 31-24. Birmingham Moseley’s next opponents were Old Albanian and in a disjointed performance, during which wing Ed Sheldon scored a try hat-trick and in which Alex Groves was sent off in the 79th minute, the home side won 56-33. A long trip north followed to play Darlington Mowden Park, who were narrowly beaten 15-7. November began with a visit from Loughborough Students who were defeated 47-19. Two away games followed, a bonus point defeat at Plymouth Albion and a narrow two point victory at Macclesfield which was only secured when the referee awared a penalty try in the final minute. Blackheath were then beaten at Billesley Common after a second half comeback. Birmingham Moseley then visited runaway league leaders Hartpury College where they lost 5-64 before acheiving an error-strewn home win over Esher in torrential rain. The second half of the league season began with a visit to Coventry, who regained the Moseley Trophy. Hull Ionians were then beaten at Billesley Common 38-19, James Wiilliams kicking 18 of the points. After the potponement of the game at Blaydon Birmingham Moseley entertained Ampthill and District. The home side led by four points going into the final quarter but the visitors scored 21 points in the final 13 minutes to acheive a ‘double’ over their hosts. Birmingham Moseley then put together a three match winning run with victries over Cambridge (away), Old Albanian (away) and Rosslyn Park (home). On 24th February Billesley Common hosted a floodlit international between Englad Counties and Scotland Clubs, won by th home side 45-28. The England Counties starting line-up included two players, lock George Oram and flanker Jack Preece, from the host club and they were later joined by replacements fly-half James Williams, scrum half Dave Brazier and back row forward Chris Brightwell. Despite having five players involved in this fixture Birmingham Moeley were forced to make the long journey to Blaydon on the following day to play the postponed fixture and, perhaps not surprisingly, were defeated. There was then a successful visit to Loughborough Students where the visitors twice recovered from ten point deficits to record a bonus point win. Plymouth Albion then visited Billesley Common and did the ‘double’ over their hosts. THis game was folowed by a visit from Macclesfield and Birmingham Moseley again struggled to overcome the Cheshire side, conceding four tries and only winning by the margin of their visitor’s two missed conversion kicks. A visit to Blackheath followed ground a narrow victory was gained. The next visitors to Billesley Common were Hartpury College, who as expected won, but not by a runaway score. The final result being a defeat by 14-32, however, 20 of the visitors’ points were scored when Ed Sheldon was in the sin bin. The two remaining league fixtures saw Birmingham Moseley lose at Esher before rounding off the season in style with a resounding 57-0 triumph over Fylde at Billesley Common. The club finished fifth in National League One behind promoted Hartpury College and Plymouth Albion, Ampthill and District and Coventry.
