McCrory steps down from Worcester Warriors role

Worcester Warriors co-owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham have become joint owners of the Gallagher Premiership club.

Jed McCrory, who was part of the consortium that bought Warriors last October, has relinquished his place on the Executive Board.

“I would like to thank the exceptional fans and the community of Worcestershire, my fellow directors and all the staff, players and coaches at Worcester Warriors for the extremely enjoyable time I have had at the club,” McCrory said.

“It is a club with enormous potential and I wish Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham all the best for a successful and prosperous future with the club.

“I have agreed to take a role working within the new Redditch Borough Council-owned Rubicon Leisure which will bring sport and leisure for all ages to north east Worcestershire. This is something that I am passionate about and I am looking forward to making an important contribution to the community I live in.”

McCrory departs Sixways with the best wishes of Goldring and Whittingham who are now the two directors on the Executive Board.

“On behalf of all at Worcester Warriors I would like to thank Jed for his contribution to reinvigorating the club,” Whittingham said.

“He played an important part in bringing together the consortium that purchased the club last October.

“Since then Jed has brought tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the Executive Board and has helped to shape the vision of a club with strong links to the local community.

“We respect Jed’s decision to take up a new post working to develop sports and leisure opportunities in his local community and wish him the very best in his new venture.”
