KEVIN Maggs was pleased with Moseley's first pre-season outing of the summer against neighbours Birmingham & Solihull Bees.
The conditioned match, played behind closed doors, allowed Maggs to run the rule over several of his new signings and trialists as both teams ran through attacking and defensive patterns.
Although the match was not scored it was played in under competitive conditions with a full referee and assistant referees team and Maggs felt it was a worthwhile exercise.
"It was a good, early opportunity to work on a few things and watch a few of the lads in a controlled environment. I think both teams got a lot out of it," he said.
"From our point of view there were lots of positives, we did some really good things and a lot of guys showed some promise.
"What was clear was that we are definitely not short of pace this year, that's for sure. I'm pleased with the way it went although it's early days."
Moseley play their first fully-fledged warm-up match at Bedwas this Saturday and play Aberavon at Billesley on August 18 before visiting Northampton Saints on Thursday, August 23. Their first league match is at Bedford on September 1.
