Woodward tops the list as Gloucester confirms three players are leaving

Playoff-chasing Gloucester have announced that three players – Jason Woodward, Will Britton and Jack Stanley – will leave Kingsholm at the end of Gallagher’s 2021/22 Premiership season. George Skivington’s side’s ambitions to reach the quarter-finals have been narrowed down to the final round of matches and ahead of their home clash with Saracens, an announcement has been made regarding the players who will soon be leaving the club.

That list is headed by Woodward, the former New Zealand Under-20 player who came through the Hurricanes and was called up to the England senior team to train with Eddie Jones a few years ago.

A statement read: “Gloucester can confirm that three players will be leaving the club before next season and would like to thank each individual for their commitment to the Cherry and White shirt during their time at Kingsholm.

“Jason Woodward joined Gloucester in 2017 and played 67 times for Cherry and White scoring 90 points. A skilful full-back, Woodward had some great moments in a Gloucester shirt.

“Will Britton’s time at Gloucester became challenging due to a major long-term injury picked up in a pre-season friendly. Despite not taking the field in a competitive match, Will has been a great professional and has worked hard off the field.

“Jack Stanley joined Gloucester in March 2020 and the fixture joined Edinburgh’s Cherry and Whites. He has made 16 appearances on Cherry and White and we look forward to seeing him progress in his next chapter.”

COO Alex Brown added: “We are truly grateful for every player who dons the famous Cherry and White jersey for their contribution to our club. Every player who advances this season has contributed to the journey we are on as a group, both on and off the pitch, and we wish them all the best for the future.”
