His previous role saw his programme gain national recognition, produce five England Colleges International players and develop a further seven students who went onto sign semi pro contracts.

Simon Bartlett, Birmingham Moseley’s Youth and Academy Manager:

“We believe there is a big demand in and around the UKs second city for talented young rugby players to be provided with outstanding coaching and competitive matches whilst continuing their academic studies at one of the area’s most successful colleges.

Our pedigree and reputation for developing potential is well known, and a curriculum based around our sport will bring its own rewards to Birmingham Moseley, Bournville College and most importantly the young players involved.”

Bournville College Rugby Coach Travis McIntyre, commented:

“The PPP enhances rugby at all levels in the area and region. Professional sport is a dream for many and The Player Pathway Partnership offers students an outstanding opportunity to achieve their goals.

However, we also recognise that further education is vitally important whether the players make the grade or not. It provides potential professional players with the essential academic grounding for use within professional sport whilst also giving them essential skills for following a career outside sport.”
