Worcester Warriors have confirmed that Matt Cox has penned a new two-year deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Cox made his professional rugby debut with the Warriors in 2008 and after a stint with Gloucester Warriors between 2010 and 2014, he rejoined the Sixways outfit. Overall, he has played 89 times for Worcester since his debut.

“This is a club that I want to keep fighting for. It’s my home club and I’ve been here since I was 15 so I don’t want to move," he said.

“The club means a lot to me and to all the people involved – those who support it, those who play for it and those who work for it. I would like to end my career here – I certainly don’t see myself playing for anyone else.”

Meanwhile, Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons is confident that Cox has a lot to offer for the club.

“Coxy is a Worcester Warriors man through and through. He is a top bloke and a great team man who truly cares about the club and gives his all every time he pulls on the jersey.

“I am delighted that he has extended his stay with us and I know that he will be an integral part of what we are trying to build here at Sixways.”
