Centre Crockett to leave the Warriors

Worcester Warriors can confirm that centre Alex Crockett will leave the club at the end of the season.

Former England Saxons centre Crockett signed for Warriors on a two-year deal in June 2010.

Crockett, who became renowned for his hard-running style, made a total of 31 appearances in all competitions as Warriors won promotion and he secured a return to the top-flight of English rugby.

However, this season his appearances have been limited after injuring his ACL during the LV=Cup clash against Bath Rugby in October.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Warriors and wish the club all the very best for the future,” said Crockett.

“Unfortunately injury has prevented me from making the contribution I would have liked this season back in the top-flight. However, I am coming back to fitness now and am determined to continue my career with a fresh challenge.

“I would like to thank the coaching staff and my team-mates for all their support and also the fans at Sixways who have made my time at the club a very memorable one.”

 Head Coach Richard Hill praised Crockett’s contribution to the club during his two-year stay at Warriors.

He said: “Alex has been very unfortunate with injuries and at the start of this season suffered the ACL which means he has not had the chance to battle for a new contract here.

“Alex played a huge part in getting us back in the Aviva Premiership from the RFU Championship and we thank him for all this efforts and wish him all the best for the future.

“He has a great attitude and it has been great to have him around the club. He is a popular member of the squad who will be missed.”
