IT has been a hectic week at Worcester Raiders and today it has been confirmed that first-team goalkeeper Matt Gwynne has joined Hereford Pegasus.

Gwynne has been a stand-out performer for the Raiders and has been widely regarded as one of the best at Step 6 level.

The news comes the day after Raiders named former Worcester City striker and Droitwich Spa manager Mark Owen as their replacement for the departing Chris Cornes.

It was initially reported that Cornes "left" the club on Monday but since then it has been suggested that was not the case.

Players came out in force to back Cornes and suggest he was "forced out" by those higher-up at the club and it has caused friction between the playing group and chairman Steve Harris.

There is a crisis meeting being held this evening at Sixways, where all players and coaches will meet with chairman Steve Harris, where the hope is that the situation can go someway to being resolved.

But the Worcester News understands that Gwynne left due to the fall-out at the club and a number of others are expected to follow suit.
