Moseley have beaten five other clubs to win the BMW Club Development of the Year prize at the Lawson Keys-sponsored National Rugby Awards at Twickenham.
The awards celebrate the great and the good of the sport’s grassroots heroes, acknowledging the dedication to rugby by thousands of clubs and individuals across the country.
“It’s fantastic to win for Moseley at this time because we have built this new facility and we need to tell people who are out there,” said former Moseley flanker Neil Mason, who collected the award.
“Moseley is obviously the premier rugby club for Birmingham city and we are pushing that forward now with that new facility.
“So much of the work has been done by volunteers and it has taken a long time to get off the ground.
“We have actually achieved it and it is a fantastic facility, we have now had three or four functions and everyone has been over the moon with our results, so the question now is – can we do it on the rugby field?”
Moseley’s hope that their new £3.6million stand and clubhouse, which were opened at the end of last season, will rekindle some past glories.
“For years and years gone by Moseley has been a massive club and we have had to rebuild from the bottom,” Mason said.
“We have built this club back from the ashes if you like and we are trying to get them back out there and these facilities are going to make it for us.
“We really have been in the doldrums for some years and this is a start in the right direction, sometime in the future we will be in the Premiership , and this is what we are trying to do.”
