Worcester Warriors DoR Alan Solomons extends stay

Alan Solomons

Alan Solomons has committed to a new deal with Worcester Warriors which will keep him in charge until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Solomons’ existing contract was set to expire at the end of next season but he has now signed a two-year extension.

The deal for 68-year-old Solomons follows on from Warriors co-owner Jed McCrory quitting Sixways amid a reshuffle among its shareholders.

New joint-owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham shared their enthusiasm for the club’s progress under the South African.

“Jason Whittingham and I both think Alan has done a great job of managing the team and rugby department since starting at Warriors,” said Warriors co-owner Goldring.

“We both support his vision and plan to achieve a sustainable top flight team with the Three Pears Warriors Academy at its core, supported by top-class talented and experienced players.

“We are delighted that Alan has signed his contract extension which ensures continuity and stability.”

Solomons joined Warriors in October 2017, initially as a consultant, and was appointed director of rugby two months later.

Solomons helped Warriors secure their Gallagher Premiership status in his first season in charge and to a record-equalling nine Premiership wins, a place in the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals and the Premiership Rugby Cup semi-finals this season.

“I am honoured to be afforded the privilege of being part of Warriors’ continuing journey and look forward to working with Colin and Jason and all concerned to realise our vision for the club,” Solomons said.
