Logo to Go-go (and other matters)

Hopefully, many of you will have already seen our flyer regarding the competition to produce a logo for the Supporters Trust. The one we have been using was produced in about 5 minutes, using free online software, when we were concerned that we may be infringing on image rights if we used the official Warriors logo. I'm sure there are many talented people out there who can produce a design that is a little more "fit and proper!" The competition is for a conceptual design only; we don't necessarily expect it to look greatly professional at this stage so don't be put off if you're lacking IT skills - pencil drawings or watercolours are just as acceptable as JPGs or PDFs.

Warriors Women

It was good to get back to Sixways at the weekend on another sunny afternoon. Worcester Warriors Women's team put on a magnificent second half display to put Sale Sharks to the sword in the 3rd round of their Allianz Cup campaign, running out 49-14 winners. New signing, Ellie Green, continued to impress with another solid performance at fly-half, kicking 14 points to up her season's tally to 31 from three games. It's not often that a player scores a hat-trick but still isn't really in with a shout of winning Player of the Match, but that's what happened to captain Vicky Laflin. Instead, her scoring antics were overshadowed by some impressive displays in the forwards. Most notable was Siobhan McCarthy, her distinctive red scrum-cap drawing the eye to some thundering dominant tackles and aggressive line-breaks, which earned her that MVP award. Surely not far behind in the reckoning was the indomitable Akina Gondwe who's work at the breakdown and constant carries over the full 80 minutes were mighty impressive. Many happy returns for next week Akina.


So - we're well into the knockout phase, after some great entertainment in the group stages. The only real upset in the groups, however, was the magnificent win by Portugal over a lacklustre Fiji side. When the line-ups for the Quarter-finals were finally known, it dawned on many of us that the Semi-finals could well be an all Northern Hemisphere affair. Indeed, with Ireland having the measure of the All Blacks for the last couple of years, France looking unstoppable at times and Wales growing in confidence with Warren back at the helm, it looked likely that a distinctly average-looking England team might be the most likely candidate to miss out on the last 4. Instead it's "normal service is resumed" with England the sole flag bearer for European Rugby left in the competition. There won't be many out there who would bet against a South Africa V New Zealand final; a game that would be unlikely to generate many new rugby fans in this country at a time when there is much at fault with the English professional game. You never know though - let's hope that my next Blog-post is reporting on Ollie Lawrence scoring a last minute interception try to break Argentinian hearts in their first ever RWC final.


Following on from our Blog-post of 7th October, we have now confirmed that our launch event is definitely to take place on Friday December 1st at WRFC (amateur) club. The organising committee are hard at work organising some fun and games. We are expecting to be making tickets available within the next couple of weeks.


On September 4th the Supporters Trust released a statement revealing that there was another bidder attempting to buy Worcester Warriors Rugby Club in its entirety. We can confirm that this party have assured us that they are still very much interested in making the purchase. Certain unsubstantiated information about the bidder gave the Trust the impression of secrecy surrounding their finances, hence the comments in our last blog post. The bidders insist that they have been, at all times, open and transparent regarding their funding with both the administrators and the RFU financial viability group; WWST agrees that the group have no requirement to provide details of their funding to anyone else. We regret and retract the use of the word "clandestine" and apologise for giving a potentially misleading impression of that party without full knowledge of their background.

The Supporters Trust will not be making further comment on this matter until the sale of the club is completed.
