Former Premier League manager joins Worcester coaching staff

Former Premier League football manager Ian Holloway will become Warriors’ new kicking coach ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The 56-year-old will make the move into rugby after a football career which has spanned more than 40 years as a player and a manager.

As a player, Holloway had three spells with hometown club Bristol Rovers and also represented QPR, Brentford, Torquay and Wimbledon.

Holloway said: “I’ve watched a lot of rugby and always thought I’d be able to help with the kicking side of the game so when the opportunity arose to join Warriors, I jumped at the chance.

“There are a lot of similarities between rugby and football and I believe a clever kicking game can really help a side in open play so that will be a big focus of mine.

“There are some really talented players at the Club and I’m looking forward to getting started in the summer.”
