Gloucester have announced that former England prop Trevor Woodman has agreed a new deal to remain as the club's scrum coach.

Gloucester have announced that former England loosehead prop Trevor Woodman has agreed a new deal to remain as their scrum coach.

Woodman, who played for the club between 1995 and 2004 and is a World Cup winner, returned to Kingsholm in March this year to take on the role.

That role was initially until the end of the 2013/14 season, but Woodman is now the latest to commit to the new-look coaching staff following the announcements that David Humphreys, Laurie Fisher, John Muggleton and Nick Walshe are all joining the Aviva Premiership club.

"I'm really pleased to be staying with Gloucester. A lot has happened at the club over the past few weeks, but we've added some quality individuals to the coaching team. I'm delighted to be involved and that I can maintain my involvement with Cheltenham College," he told Gloucester's website.

"No-one was satisfied with how we performed last year, and that's providing extra motivation for everyone as we prepare for next season. We know where we want to be and we're working hard to achieve that.

"I'm particularly looking forward to working with Laurie Fisher, whose background speaks for itself. He's achieved big things wherever he has coached and I think we'll make a good team.

"The squad is looking strong as a whole, but it's now a question of getting everyone to realise their undoubted potential and helping Gloucester to move onwards and upwards."
