We look forward to welcoming Plymouth Albion and their supporters on Saturday 26th April 2014 to Billesley Common for the Greene King IPA Championship fixture – Moseley v Plymouth Albion with a 3.00 pm kick off.
How to find us
Directions for travel to the ground are on the club website www.moseleyrugby.co.uk (How to find us). This includes details of train and bus travel. Train and bus to the ground is relatively straightforward.
Car parking is free, and disabled badge holders can park right next to the wheel-chair friendly clubhouse. To avoid congestion (and to keep our neighbours happy!) please follow the directions on the website and approach the ground from the South.
The catering facilities are open from 1.30 pm on match day serving a variety of food such as “panini”, Chilli, jacket potatoes, succulent pork baps (described by a Rotherham visitor as “the best pork butty in Christendom!”) healthy sandwiches as well as the usual “chips with everything” from three different serving locations. We received plaudits from many visiting supporters last season.
Real Ale Update
We always have a choice of real ales. There is a dedicated ‘real ale only’ bar at one end of the clubhouse and the main bar serving real ale and ‘everything else’.
The ales for Plymouth Albion are:
Greene King IPA (3.6% abv) Special Offer £2.50 pint Greene King IPA is a perfectly balanced ale, characterised by its fresh, hoppy taste and clean, bitter finish. This hoppy taste and aroma come from two varieties of English hops – Challenger and First Gold – which are combined with pale and crystal malts. A great beer to enjoy with curry, Mexican and other spicy food, or simply on its own
Greene King IPA Gold (4.1%) Greene King IPA Gold is a light, refreshing golden ale that truly brings out the best in the unique and aromatic Savinsjki Goldings hop variety which creates a perfect blend of tropical fruits, mango and spicy notes.
Yardbird (4.0% abv) ABV Full of hops and with a lasting fruity flavour, this beer is inspired by bold American pale ales.
Ale Fresco (4.3% abv)Smooth and easy drinking, this golden ale is brewed using Centennial hops, and has a light citrus taste.

A couple of comments we have received recently (unsolicited – honest!):
Great facilities & welcoming atmosphere
“The weekend was very successful with lots of really positive feedback coming to me regarding the club’s great facilities and welcoming atmosphere.”

Enlightened approach & awesome spread of food
Thanks to all at Mose RFC for a cracking day – the spread of food is awesome (pork baps scrummy), very friendly people, great rugby club.
From a personal point of view your policy of free parking and helpful comments for disabled spectators is very refreshing. …………I know money is tight for everyone, but the good will generated by an enlightened approach like yours will surely pay off in the long term.

Solid, friendly supporters, lovely food
Solid, friendly supporters, lovely food. Always give us a good welcome whether we are supporting them or in this case , the opposition. It’s our second club really as we have some really good memories of colts days.

Amazing day, friendly atmosphere
My first away trip outside of the local sides with Plymouth yesterday and had an amazing day. You all helped that, I loved the reaction when we chanted Albion, you all started chanting Moseley and made a brilliant atmosphere.
You guys deserved something from the game, glad it wasn’t the four points but I would say that. Your fans were friendly and was pleased to have visited your ground.

Sense of history
It was such a pleasure to enter their club house yesterday and be reminded about what most traditional club houses are like. One could feel the sense of history and pride in the place – despite their changing fortunes. It was decently, though not expensively, decorated; there were photographs all over the place, not just of their famous players from the past, but also of rank and file players and spectators too, going back generations – even in the loos! And wasn’t it fantastic to be able to take advantage of the Real Ale Bar. Personal I agree with Steve, who found the Kimberley bitter to be the pick of the bunch. I think I managed to try all of them and found they were all good!
My point is, I thought the place had real atmosphere. A real rugby atmosphere!
