Vesty agrees new deal at Worcester

Date published: January 7 2016

Worcester Warriors have confirmed that backs coach Sam Vesty has agreed a new contract with the Premiership club.

Vesty has been somewhat of a revelation since joining the club's backroom staff as academy transition coach in 2013.

After playing an instrumental role in helping Cavaliers progress to the 2015 Aviva A League final, Vesty became backs coach last February.

He has since worked closely with the first-team squad, helping Warriors win promotion back to the top-flight in May, and has seen the side become the Premiership's fourth highest try scorers of the season so far.

"Sam has clearly demonstrated his ability as one of the best young coaches in the game at present and we are delighted that he has signed a new contract," said Warriors director of rugby Dean Ryan.

"Sam has been part of this journey from the very start and has continued to play a key role in the development of this side and, in particular, our exciting backline."

Vesty added: "I have enjoyed my time at Warriors immensely and have already witnessed huge progression from the Club as a whole over the last two and a half years.

"I believe we are in a strong position to build on that and I am very much looking forward to being a part of the Club's future.

"There is a lot of talent amongst this squad and it is a real pleasure to come in every day and work alongside an array of exciting players, who all buy in to what this Club are trying to achieve."
