Heathcote extends his Sixways stay

Warriors are delighted to announce that Scotland international Tom Heathcote has put pen to paper on a new contract to extend his stay at Sixways.

The 25-year-old, who arrived at the Club in the summer of 2015, enjoyed a successful debut campaign in the Blue and Gold and became first-choice fly-half.

Despite being ruled out for the second-half of the current campaign, Heathcote has gone on to rack up 161 points in 29 appearances for the Club.

Before arriving at Sixways Heathcote rose through the ranks at Bath Rugby, where he was nominated for the LV= Breakthrough Player award in 2013, before moving to Edinburgh Rugby for a season in 2014.

He made his Scotland debut during his time at Bath and has gone on to make three appearances for his country. 

Warriors Director of Rugby Gary Gold said: “Tom is an extremely competent fly-half who enjoyed a fine maiden season at Sixways by all accounts. 

“He has been unfortunate to miss a large part of the current season through injury but we are looking forward to seeing him fit again and competing with our other fly-halves for a place in the side.”

Heathcote said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sixways since my first game against Northampton Saints, although missing three months of this season has been frustrating.

“I am excited about the opportunity to get back out on the pitch to help the side and am looking forward to what will hopefully be a long future at the Club.”
