Worcester will receive a deduction of 35 points if it enters administration

Some staff at Worcester Warriors have yet to receive their wages for August, despite promises from the club’s owners.

The players eventually received their full month’s wages on Friday, while other non-playing staff members were paid 65% of their wages.

However, it is known that the remaining 35% of salaries have not yet been paid and some staff have not yet been paid.

Worcester begin their Premier League season at London Irish on Saturday.

While Premier League Rugby is confident Worcester will be able to fulfill their fixtures this season, preparations for the new campaign have been overshadowed by uncertainty over the club’s future.

Warriors suffered from a HMRC winding up application over unpaid tax, p wages are paid late and club accounts are frozen.

While there are local deputies urged the club’s administration to settle their debts, the owners insist they are working to sell the club and have three interested buyers.

“All three buyers are serious offers and any deal under consideration will avoid the club going into administration,” owners Jason Whittingham and Colin Goldring said in a joint statement.

“One of the buyers is moving at a particularly fast pace.”

However, despite last Wednesday’s promise that all staff would be paid “within five days”, this has yet to happen.

“There are a significant number of staff who are yet to receive anything for August,” a source told the BBC on Wednesday.

“The rest of the staff received 65% for the weekend, but there was no word on when they would receive the rest of their pay.”
