Students ready to take over Sixways

A GROUP of teenagers will be hoping to create a special match day experience for players and fans when they take over the reins at Sixways Stadium.

Worcester Warriors has given a selection of youngsters the chance to plan, promote and deliver the club’s Cavaliers’ match against the Army on Wednesday, March 12.

Staff at Warriors will help the group design eye-catching posters and interview players ahead of the game, while some teenagers will have the opportunity to work with the hospitality and maintenance teams.

It will be the third consecutive year that youngsters from Worcester have played a part in running the annual match and Stuart Brooks, HITZ officer at Warriors, believed it will be very beneficial to everyone involved.

“These youngsters are passionate about sport and they are keen to learn and develop as individuals in this environment,” he said.

“By giving them an opportunity to be part of different departments and understand day-to-day life in a work-place, we have seen these youngsters grow in confidence.”

Student Connor Mitchell added: “I’m excited about working with the Warriors staff, who give us lots of support every day. It is a chance for us to work as a team and learn new things.”

The event has been organised as part of the HITZ programme, which uses rugby to help to increase young people’s resilience, self-reliance and confidence.
