Paddy Anson joins Worcester Warriors backroom staff

Former Royal Marine Paddy Anson has joined Worcester Warriors as head of strength and conditioning.

The ex-Gloucester and Exeter Chiefs conditioning boss will join the Aviva Premiership's Warriors next month following a stint with GB Hockey and English Institute of Sport at Bisham Abbey.

"We welcome someone of Paddy's experience to head up our strength and conditioning department at a crucial time of the season," said Worcester head coach Carl Hogg.

"Paddy is equipped with huge expertise and implemented some of the best training programmes in Premiership Rugby during his spells at Gloucester and Exeter."

Anson spent six seasons at Exeter and four at Gloucester before leaving his role at Kingsholm last summer.

Hogg and Anson worked together at Gloucester and so now link up again with the Warriors.

"I am delighted to have made the move to Sixways and I am looking forward to working with the players and staff," said Anson.
