Worcester Announce Gary Gold’s Successor And Fans Are Mostly Happy

Worcester Warriors have announced today the successor to Gary Gold as the club’s new Director of Rugby. 

Alan Solomons, who joined the Worcester in October to assist Gold, has contributed to the upturn in the club’s fortunes. Since Solomons has arrived at Sixways, Worcester have secured back-to-back wins in the Aviva Premiership against Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers, in addition to their most recent victory over London Irish on Friday night.

Warriors Chairman Bill Bolsover said: “We are delighted that we have managed to secure Alan on a long-term contract.

“Since he arrived at the Club, Alan has been a key influence behind the scenes and has quickly earnt the respect of staff and players, who have all spoken very highly of him.

“This has been illustrated by the commitment of the players and the fact we have seen a marked improvement in the team’s performances.

“Our search for a new Director of Rugby was extensive and we interviewed a number of high-quality candidates, but Alan stood out as someone who could bring stability to the Club and take us forward.

“We thank Gary Gold for his hard work and efforts during his year at Sixways and wish him the best of luck with his role at the USA.”

Gold is to take up a new job as the head coach of the USA national team and supporters of the Warriors seem happy with Gold’s replacement.

Some supporters are a little less enthusiastic, however.
