Steve Diamond signs off from Worcester Warriors with blunt 14 word statement

Worcester Warriors boss Steve Diamond has hinted that the weekend’s 39-5 win will be his last in charge of the ginanacially troubled club.

Warriors, who are expected to be suspended by the Rugby Football Union, face the prospect of Saturday’s game with Newcastle having been their last in the Premiership..

Diamond wrote in what seems to be a goodbye tweet: “Its been some ride with the Warriors. Loved every minute. Good night from me.”

If Worcester do not pay their insurance premiums by 17:00 BST on Monday, then the ground will be closed.

The continued silence from co-owners Jason Whittingham and Colin Goldring over the past week, Diamond admitted in an interview that he has very little idea how things will pan out.

“There’s no plan now,” he said. “The building isn’t insured from Monday so we are not allowed to train, use the gym or the rest of the facilities.

“The caretaker and his wife are being chucked out as residents on the site.

“When it goes into administration, or if it goes into administration, because that’s the rumour on the street, no doubt the relevant parties will contact the directors and they can make the decision.

“But the staff here are all volunteering because they are not getting paid. That shows we have a really passionate workforce who care about their jobs and who care about Worcester. That’s what I would be looking at if I was an investor.”
