Former England captain Lewis Moody is named as Bradford on Avon's new director of rugby.

Former England captain Lewis Moody has been named as Bradford on Avon's new director of rugby.

The 26-year-old, who was forced to retire from playing in March 2012 because of a shoulder injury, has taken on the role at the Southern Counties League club.

"After watching the lads play and earn a very well deserved promotion at the end of last season, I started helping Dave George out with coaching and very quickly realised what I was missing," said Moody.

"The enthusiasm, energy, commitment and teamwork the players showed in taking on the new ideas we introduced, made me realise I was ready to come back to the game I love."

Moody, who helped England win the World Cup in 2003, is preparing his hometown club for the start of the new season, which begins away at Walcot on September 13.

Bradford on Avon were promoted from Dorset and Wiltshire One last season.
