Former Moseley 1st XV Captain John White has continued to do a magnificent job as Head Coach of Moseley Oak during their rise up the league table this season. John is a very distinguished former player for both Moseley and North Midlands and played for Midland Counties (West) when they defeated the All Blacks at The Reddings in 1972.
John has had 2 successful spells as Moseley 1st XV Coach and has also been Head Coach at Birmingham & Solihull as well as Coventry.
While John has a driven ambition for success he is also a huge advocate of the importance of player development. He is a keen and accurate judge of a player’s strengths and weaknesses and works very hard at improving both.
He has a deep knowledge of physiology and bio-mechanics and again, is able to integrate physical development guidance alongside the development of personal and team skills.
John heads the training and coaching team which also benefits from Terry Malins and three of the current 1st XV are also qualified Level 2 coaches.
Training takes place at Billesley Common on the IRB Approved Third Generation (3G) Rubber Crumb All Weather floodlit pitch on Wednesday's at 7:30pm.
