The Warriors now expect to look as sharp off the pitch as they do on it with their matching suits, shirts and ties.
The dashing new look of the squad is as a result of sponsorship through Earlplace, the well established Solihull based property company. The idea first came from Lawrence Grove, Chairman of Earlplace, at the end of last season and has been well received by the club.
Although never reaching the high standards and achievements of his two sons, Alex and Oli, Lawrence eventually 'hung up his boots' when he was 47 years old following a stint as Chairman of Championship club, Birmingham & Solihull.
"First impressions always count", he said, "and seeing the team arrive in smart suits shows they mean business. I also believe that it reflects well on the club's organisation and determination to progress".
Earlplace has always maintained strong links with rugby and has previously sponsored Coventry and naturally Birmingham & Solihull rugby clubs. "However, to be associated with Worcester and all they stand for is something that Earlplace is particularly proud of", continued Lawrence. "I hope that in some way this sponsorship will contribute to the success which I am sure will come Worcester's way this season".
