Worcester Warriors have confirmed that fly-half Jamie Shillcock has signed a new two-year contract with the Gallagher Premiership side.

Shillock, a product of Worcester Academy made his debut for the first-team when he was just 17 years during the Championship play-off semi-final against London Scottish in 2015.

His Premiership debut came in September 2016 during the game against Sale Sharks and overall has made 44 first-team appearances in which he amassed 131 points.

“I have some great memories of being part of this group of players and I am delighted to have signed a new deal with the Club," said Shillock.

“It’s nice to have the confidence from the coaches at a young age and I want to repay that confidence with my performances.

“Our squad depth is greater than ever and I’m looking forward to pushing on individually and as a team in the future.”

The 21-year-old also has experience of playing for England Under 18 Counties and the England Under 19 Academies.

Worcester director of rugby Alan Solomons lavished praise on Shillock and the Academy system in place for grooming the young talents.

"Jamie is a talented young player who has already made almost 50 appearances for the first-team.

“In keeping with our vision Jamie is yet another player who has come through the ranks at the Club. This underscores the importance of our Academy system.”
