New deal for Humphreys

Date published: November 16 2016

Worcester have announced that young wing Perry Humphreys has committed his future to the Warriors by signing a new contract with the club.

After joining the Warriors Academy in 2014, Humphreys burst onto the first-team scene as he was handed his debut on the wing against Rotherham Titans in the Championship.

The paceman continued his growth in the 2015/16 campaign, featuring in the Challenge Cup and was once again a key member of the Cavaliers squad, scoring six tries before being rewarded with a first-team contract in February 2016.

At the start of this season, Humphreys made his Premiership debut at Twickenham against Saracens before scoring a sensational try on his home Premiership bow against Gloucester a week later.

Head coach Carl Hogg said: “Perry is yet another example of a young player who has grasped his opportunity in the early stages of this season.

“He provides great competition across the back three and has grown immensely during his first two seasons at the club.

“At just 22, Perry still has plenty of potential and we are excited about working with him to help him reach the top of his game.”

Humphreys added: “I’m thrilled to have signed with a club that is clearly heading in the right direction.

“I’ve really enjoyed the last couple of seasons alongside a great bunch of players and I continue to learn off some fantastic role models in players such as Chris Pennell and Bryce Heem.

“The best way to improve as a player is through game-time and there’s no better place for opportunities for young players than here at Warriors.”
