CEO Stephen Vaughan says it’s business as usual at Gloucester Rugby

Gloucester Rugby CEO Stephen Vaughan today wished outgoing Head Coach Laurie Fisher good luck for the future but insisted that the club is still in good shape going forward.

Fisher left the club on Monday this week after approximately two and a half years in charge of the club’s coaching set up. Jonny Bell will step up for the remaining few weeks of the season and Vaughan confirmed that he’s comfortable with that arrangement.

“First and foremost, I’d like to thank Laurie for his incredible hard work and wish him all the best for the future. I’ve got to know him well over the past couple of years and his knowledge of the game is second to none.

“However, Gloucester Rugby is bigger than any one individual. We were all bitterly disappointed with how the game finished on Saturday, but we have a big few weeks ahead of us including, of course, the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final against Cardiff Blues and we want to finish the season on a high note.

“As David (Humphreys) said yesterday, we have already started the search for a new Head Coach and we aim to confirm an appointment by the end of the month.

“For the time being though, we’re 100% behind David, Jonny Bell and the rest of the coaches and hope to give our supporters something to shout about before the season is out.”
