HUNDREDS of fans came out to show their support for Worcester Warriors at Sixways Stadium. 

Worcester Warriors was issued with a winding-up petition by HMRC last week which has led to widespread worry about the future of the club.

 Fans of all ages created banners, posters and plaques in order to demonstrate outside Sixways Stadium with less than 24 hours notice. 

Several people in the crowd said they had never been to a demonstration like this before, including nine-year-old Nina Rodway who had painted her own signs earlier today.

Nina said: "I like watching rugby with my dad and grandad, I painted all the signs myself today."

Jonny Arr, who is a former player for Worcester Warriors, said: "What is happening is very concerning and that the club is in the position that it is in.

"I think I can speak for most people when I say that everyone who has come out today just wants a positive outcome."

Thomas Sinclair, who was holding a Worcester Warriors t-shirt, said: "I'm very passionate about this club, I have supported Worcester Warriors since 2016.

"I love this club, I don't want it to disappear, the players deserve better. 

"I've never been to a protest before but I'm very passionate about this."

Superfans Linda and Geraint Evans have supported Worcester Warriors for around 20 years. 

Mrs Evans said: "I feel appalled and shocked that this has happened. 

"We've supported this club for 20 odd years, we're season ticket holders and we've even followed them abroad and gone to their away matches." 

Tracey Wood, who was with her 12-year-old daughter Paige, said: "I think it's really sad for the city of Worcester, I think it's really sad for the players, for the people who work here and all of the players involved in the academy pathway." 

Gabby Radford said she has supported the club since she was five years old.

The fan said: "I'm devastated this club has been a part of my life since I was five years old. 

"But the support we have had has been phenomenal. 

"I've never been to a protest before, but something felt right about coming here tonight." 

Bob Low, chair of the Warriors Rugby Supporters Club, said: "I feel genuinely emotional.

"You take the club for granted and then if it's taken away and it puts it into perspective. 

"We've had such a huge amount of support.

"Rugby is just a game at the end of the day, but it's the fans and the people that make it.  

"A lot of people have told me that they are here in spirit today because they couldn't make it. 

"I would've been happy if 10-15 people came to support us, but we have around 200 people here today."
