If that guy wants to move up so bad, then he should DO IT himself. It is just a game, and some people play more aggressively than others. That doesn't mean the others aren't valuable or doing their part... Sometimes the person at the back SAVES the game for you when some aggressive player on the other team gets past all the front guys and gets stopped by the newbie in the back.
Whether or not you know it, if you tell a N00b to "move up" and you aren't
moving up, 9/10 times what they hear is "go get shot while I stay back here where it's safe."
If you want to encourage a n00b to move up field, ask them to cover you while you move and then to take your position.
