Warriors staff aim to be top of class

Staff from Worcester Warriors are ready to dust off their boots on Bank Holiday Monday and will be aiming to hand out a rugby lesson when they take on a team of teachers in a charity match at Sixways Stadium.

The Warriors Charity Challenge match, that kicks-off at 7pm on the stadium pitch on Monday, May 4, will see players from across the club’s various departments, including the 1st XV rugby department, the Academy department and community epartment.

Some well-known Warriors from the past are set to feature, with the match being refereed by Guinness Premiership official Paul Dix.

The game is being held in aid of the Matt Hampson Trust and Wooden Spoon and will make up the first part of the Warriors involvement in a national charity campaign by all 12 Guinness Premiership clubs. 

Teachers from Droitwich High, RGS Worcester & Alice Ottley School, Elgar, Alvechurch Middle, The Chase, Nunnery Wood, Winterfold House, Tewkesbury High, Evesham High, Prince Henry’s Evesham and Bishop Perowne are all set to do battle with the Warriors.

Tickets are priced at £3 each for adults and children – under threes go free – and are available from the Warriors Box Office on 01905 454183.

Match day parking is available with a charge of £2 on the night – which will also go to the charities.

Please book to avoid disappointment and support two great charities.
