WORCESTER Warriors have unveiled the new shirt that will be worn by the players in Sunday’s Gallagher Premiership match against Leicester Tigers at Sixways on Sunday (1pm).

The shirts which have been printed to raise funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice feature a magenta, cyan and green graphical design.

They also include the logo of Acorns which provide care for local life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families.

The limited-edition shirts will be available to purchase from the Sixways Store on the day of the big game with all proceeds going to Acorns.

Fans can get their hands on the shirts worn by the players by requesting a silent auction form from the club with the money going to the charity.

Warriors hooker Niall Annett, who is the club’s Acorns Player Ambassador, said: “This is an annual fixture and something that the players are very passionate about.

“As a club we are very closely associated with Acorns which does incredible work in helping these children.

“The players regularly drop down to give them a hand and witness first-hand the fantastic work that they do.

“Going down to Acorns has been and will continue to be, a huge part of that for me. I can go down to Acorns off the back of having had a great or bad day’s training but nothing will make you feel better than seeing one of these kids’ beaming smiles amidst all the struggles and challenges they face.

“That is when you realise that sometimes we get as much from these kids as they do from us. Through these trying circumstances, the kids and their families show such amazing strength.

“We are looking forward to the Charity Matchday against Leicester and I’m sure everyone will get behind this great cause to help make a real difference to the lives of these children.”

Annett and other Warriors players will take part in a question-and-answer session with Acorns guests on Sunday in the Sixways Upper Charity Lounge.

A one course meal of lasagne, garlic bread and salad can also be booked with proceeds going to Acorns.

There will also be bucket collections around the ground in support of Acorns.
