Charles Cameron 'disappointed' to stand down

I am proud of what I achieved at Sixways and I am very disappointed to have lost the backing of the Board of the Trading Company just as I felt real progress was being made.

I should like to thank the players, coaches, staff and fans for their support. I shall continue to support the Warriors and have every confidence that given time, Dean Ryan and his team will deliver a successful Premiership side.

– Charles Cameron, former Chief Executive for Worcester Warriors Rugby Club

A formal search for a replacement will commence shortly. In the meantime Anthony Glossop, a non-executive director who chairs the board, will take on a part-time executive role.

Anthony Glossop has said in a statement: “I would personally like to thank Charles for his hard work during his period with us, which I appreciated.”

Worcester are currently at the bottom of the Premiership and could face relegation at the end of the season.

Rugby players appeal for help to feed the homeless

Rugby players from Worcester Warriors have launched an appeal for help to feed the homeless in Birmingham.

The club’s lock forward, Dean Schofield, has called for businesses in the city to donate food to the SIFA Fireside Centre in Digbeth which can be used to give breakfasts to those in need.

He said a decline in donations in recent months means the service is at risk of failing.

Each Monday morning, players from the Aviva Premiership club bring food to the centre which they cook and serve.

SIFA Fireside works to tackle homelessness and alcohol abuse. Around 120 people use the centre every day.

The players have helped serve more than 800 breakfasts since they got involved in September last year.

Worcester Warrior's Aviva Premiership match away at Gloucester was delayed this afternoon, after a giant inflatable rugby ball brought down the cross bar of the posts at one end of the pitch.

Once the game did get underway at the Kingsholme Stadium, it did not go so well for Worcester, who lost 12-6.

Players loan opposition kit after coach fire - full story

Swansea players generously donated some of their equipment to Worcester Warriors after some of the team's kit was destroyed in a fire which engulfed their coach.

While everyone on board escaped unharmed, their kit was not so lucky.

Fortunately, the Ospreys generously offered up some of their own to allow yesterday's match to go ahead with just a 90 minute delay.

Investigations are ongoing into what caused the blaze.

Darryl Murphy has the full story.
