Chief executive Cameron to leave Warriors

CHARLES Cameron is to leave his post as chief executive of Worcester Warriors after less than a year in charge, the club have announced.

Cameron, who took over at Sixways last May, is to stand down with immediate effect.

Anthony Glossop, a non-executive director who chairs the board, will take on a part-time executive role and a formal search for a replacement will commence shortly.

Cameron said: “I am proud of what I achieved at Sixways and I am very disappointed to have lost the backing of the board of the trading company just as I felt real progress was being made.

“I should like to thank the players, coaches, staff and fans for their support. I shall continue to support the Warriors and have every confidence that given time, Dean Ryan and his team will deliver a successful Premiership side.”

Glossop added: “I would personally like to thank Charles for his hard work during his period with us, which I appreciated."

Maybe a bit out of the blue but when you can only drum up attendances of a few thousand for the likes of games against Leicester then the powers that be are going to start looking for a fresh perspective. Fresh blood, new ideas,to help steer our club back to a successful business is what they want.

Let's hope the new one isn't a Charlie, cos' they ain't in favour at Sadways. That's two out the door within 12 months.

He had been in the job 9 months. He had listened and spoken to the fans and acted on what he heard. We have a new paved footpath, while it may not sound a great deal Little never listened over repeated attempts to solve the footpath issue He has tried ideas to boost ticket sales some of which have not worked but at least he tried something we have not seen promotions at Worcester in terms of tickets in the past. He tried things but apathy from the frustrated public due to the poor results on the pitch where probably his biggest issue in terms of ticket sales. He was not responsible for team performance, I suspect this is our scapegoat for the seasons failings.

We are all in the dark about this and it is pointless speculating . The departing Cameron was a really successful chap in 'his' career . Just do a quick 'wiki' on him and you will see what I mean .
It might be that he was a 'round peg in a square hole' type of situation . The problem is that sporting prowess and success is an intangible , Manufacturing and mining are able to produce a solid tangible product . Controls costs and processes are completely different and that might be one of the reasons for the lack of progress . He is an infinitely more qualified chap than the previous incumbent, but, maybe not suitable in this application.
