WARRIORS’ backs coach Sam Vesty has agreed a new contract with the club.

Warriors have recently announced the young coach will continue his role working with the squad, having joined the backroom staff as academy transition coach in 2013.

After playing an instrumental role in helping the 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 Worcester win promotion back to the top flight in May, while also playing a big role in aiding a young Warriors side to lift the B&I Cup.

During an established playing career, Vesty made 151 Premiership appearances throughout spells with Leicester Tigers – where he won three Premiership titles – and Bath.

He was a regular for both clubs in the Heineken Cup, helping Leicester to the final of the competition in 2007 and 2009, before winning two England caps later that summer.

“I’ve enjoyed my time at Warriors immensely and have already witnessed huge progression in the club over the last two and a half years,” said Vesty.

“I believe we’re in a strong position to build on that progression and I’m very much looking forward to being a part of the club’s future.

“There’s a lot of talent amongst this squad and it’s 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,” he added.

Director of Rugby Dean Ryan said: “Sam has clearly demonstrated his ability as one of the best young coaches in the game at present and we’re delighted he’s signed a new contract.

“We’ve always said we’ll develop young coaches and Sam felt he was moving in the right direction.

“He’s been a 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.
