Grove to leave Warriors at end of season

Warriors centre Alex Grove will leave the Club at the end of the season after a ten-year spell at Sixways. 

Grove, a product of the Warriors Academy, has gone on to make 152 appearances for the Club, crossing the whitewash on 29 occasions. 

During his time at Sixways, Grove has enjoyed two promotions to the Aviva Premiership, while also winning the British & Irish Cup in the 2014/15 campaign. 

The 28-year-old also picked up three international caps for Scotland back in 2009.

Director of Rugby Dean Ryan said: “I’d like to thank Alex for his fantastic contribution to this Club over the last decade. 

“He has been a tremendous athlete with the utmost professionalism and we wish him all the best in the future.”
      
Grove said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to represent this Club and I'd like to thank John Brain, Mike Ruddock, Richard Hill and Dean Ryan for giving me every one of those opportunities to pull on the jersey. 

“I've been fortunate to play alongside some top blokes and talented individuals here, and it is through this Club I've made some great friends. 

“The development both on and off the field at Sixways shows the Club's desire and intent to become a top side and a huge amount of credit must go to the board for their vision, generosity and commitment.

“Finally, I must thank our incredible fans. Thank you to each and every one of you for your support over the years. We're lucky to have a group that sticks with the Club through the tough times and who are there to celebrate the highs.

“I look forward to returning to Sixways to support the boys in the coming seasons. See you on the terraces!”
