Malvern Town V Worcester Raiders.

Are the fans of Worcester Raiders ex Worcester city fans?

Done some research on Worcester Warriors. They were Formed in 1871. Gloucester and Bath were Formed in the 1860's. Worcester moved to Sixways in 1975, don't know what it looked like then. It looks a far more recent set up.

Andrew Adebowale, Hannah, Hoskins, Kirkup, Mainwaring, Tucker, Wollen.

In the 1980/90s Worcester advanced their way up the rugby divisions thanks to Cecil Duckworth, a local businessman, who may also have been behind the building of Sixways Stadium. They have nowhere near the traditions of the likes of Gloucester, Bristol, Bath, Leicester or Northampton for example. They have always struggled to maintain a competitive presence in the Premier League, but have produced an occasional good player - who have generally been snapped up by other more successful clubs, including Gloucester.

So sad that the people of Worcester would flock to Sixways to watch rugby and Villa Park to watch football.
