WORCESTER Raiders confirmed on Wednesday evening that two members of the coaching staff have left the club.

Mainly, assistant manager Richard Upton has decided to part ways with Raiders having been manager Karl Gormley's right-hand man since October.

The Sixways-based club failed to gain promotion to Step 5 through the play-offs in the Hellenic League Division One after losing in the final to Hereford Pegasus.

Following the disappointment, Upton and goalkeeping coach Clem Clements have also left.

"We thank Richard and Clem for their efforts this season in helping us reach the promotion play-off final and we wish them all the best for their future ventures," said Raiders Chairman Steve Harris.

"We shall now begin the search for their replacements and we hope to make appointments as soon as possible as we plan for next season."

It comes as another change in the management ranks at Raiders, following a season of them in the 2021/22 campaign.

Mark Owen came in as joint manager with Gormley in October after the sacking of Chris Cornes. Clements and Upton also joined the set-up at the same time.

Owen then left for 'personal reasons' back in January, leaving Gormley as the main man.

Raiders remain on the hunt for recruits in both the management and playing side of the game.
