Birmingham Moseley Rugby Launch Their New Community Rugby Department


Birmingham Moseley are delighted to announce a new Community Rugby Department which will again deliver a wide range of sports projects and supply quality sports coaching to schools and organisations in the local area. Having previously had a very successful community department through the running of rugby projects and government grants, we recognise that a community covers a whole lot more. 

The department - which will be headed by a newly appointed Head of Community - has been established following close work between the Birmingham Moseley Chairman David Warren, current head of community Nick Avgousti and Sports in Schools Ltd. Sports In Schools Ltd specialise in the formation and operating of community departments for sporting clubs and businesses. They already oversee near neighbours Coventry Rugby and Championship side Bedford Blues community departments with others around the country.  

With over 300 schools and organisations across Birmingham and Solihull, there is a fantastic opportunity to build stronger links within the community, deliver high quality sports provision and provide sustained support to the next generation of rugby players who could one day pull on a Birmingham Moseley jersey. It also provides the main body of the club with a sustainable income. 

Speaking about the appointment, Birmingham Moseley Chairman David Warren said: “This is a very exciting development for our already existing community department and one that I believe passionately in. Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club is a huge part of the community already, but we have so much more to offer schools, clubs and organisations, and this appointment will allow us to become far more involved with the local area and beyond.

“We want to make a positive impact on the lives of youngsters across Birmingham and Solihull as well provide school holiday camps and match day experiences. We are also focusing on quality coaching being delivered to schools with long relationships between the two being harboured. 

“All of this will help Birmingham Moseley become more engaged with the local community while also galvanising youngsters to become more involved with the sport that we all love and in turn our club.”

Matt Price, Managing Director of Sports In Schools Ltd added: “A community department is now a major part of a rugby clubs operational activity and with Birmingham Moseley being a major force in their specific area and being well known as a community club, it makes complete sense. Nick Avgousti has done a fantastic job so far and we are looking forward to adding to this. My Operational Director will work closely with Nick on finding the right Head of Community to take Birmingham Moseley Community forward. It’s exciting times all round and Sports In Schools is delighted to be a part of it.”

Birmingham Moseley Community will be running the first of many rugby camps for children at Billesley Common during the February Half Term. The dates are Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd & Thursday 23rd February. 9am – 3pm. Boys & Girls. 5yrs – 15yrs. To find out more just email
