Fly-half Heathcote extends Warriors stay

Aaron Wise 27th Apr, 2017

SCOTLAND international Tom Heathcote has committed his future to the club by signing a new contract.

The 25-year-old, who joined Worcester in 2015, enjoyed a successful debut campaign on his way to becoming Warriors’ first-choice fly-half.

Despite being ruled out for the second-half of the current season, Heathcote has gone on to rack up 161 points in 29 appearances for the club.

Before arriving at Sixways, Heathcote rose through the ranks at Bath, where he was nominated for the ‘LV= Breakthrough Player’ award in 2013, before moving to Edinburgh Rugby for a season in 2014.

He made his Scotland debut during his time at Bath and has gone on to make three appearances for his country.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sixways since my first game against Northampton Saints, although missing three months of this season has been frustrating,” said Heathcote.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to get back out on the pitch to help the side and am looking forward to what will hopefully be a long future at the club,” he added.

Director of rugby Gary Gold said: “Tom is an extremely competent fly-half who enjoyed a fine maiden season at Sixways by all accounts.

“He’s been unfortunate to miss a large part of the current season through injury, but we’re looking forward to seeing him fit again and competing with our other fly-halves for a place in the side.”
