2019 - 2020 Players retained and acquired
By Lindsay Clayton

The Warriors are looking to build next season's squad, not sure which plaryers contracts are up at the end of the season, but there are seveal key players that most Warriors fans would like to see stay for a while longer...
Here are the players who have signed up so far. It would be great to see a 10 a winger and a couple more re-sign before Christmas.
Got the 10! and now one more of our talented young players earns a 1st team contract. Now a Warrior legend signs on for two more years.
Next season's squad is shaping up nicely with Graham Kitchener returning to Sixways and exciting new names also secure.
More updates three new signings and an extension

Only one where I think it wasnt noted was Ted Hill.
Is it safe to assume he's signed for two years, or have we been bolder and gone for three or four ??
Great work so far Warriors. Solid base for January transfers.
Solomons on the subject of transfer targets.
SIGNED: Carey, Fidow, Kitchener, Kitto, Nanai.
RE-SIGNED: Bower, Butler, Cox, Heaney, Hill, Howe, Humphreys, Lawrence, Mama, Miller, Mudariki, Pennell, Shillcock, van Breda, van Velze, Williams, Weir.
FUTURES TO BE RESOLVED: Adams, Annett, Arr, Barry, Fa’osiliva, Kerrod, Kirwan, Olivier, Potgieter, Singleton, Te’o.

Adams - Fidow
Arr - Kitto
Barry - Kitchener
Faosiliva - Montgomery
Heem - Nanai
Kerrod - Carey
Singleton - Mounds
The three academy locks are stepping up to provide depth there, and presumably we'll be seeing more of Butler and Lawrence to cover Olivier and Teo - neither of whom were in the first team that often. Mudariki must be close to being ready for bigger games to cover Gareth.
Granted, we haven't seen much of Kirwan or any of Potgieter, but back row still seems a little light on depth.

15. Pennell/van Breda
So this is how things look for next season. I think the first team is just as good as this season my only concern is the lack of depth. If we lose Annett, Schonert, Fatialofa, Hougaard or Mills for an extended period we could be badly exposed. It's very risky only having 3 senior locks next season with the 3 academy guys stepping up. I also think we could be light at centre, Butler/Beck/Lawrence are all injured at the moment. Any knocks to Mills or Venter and we would have no cover.
