“INSPIRATIONAL” Worcester Warriors forward Ted Hill will return to his roots to pass on top tips to players at Malvern Rugby Club.

Hill, who came through the youth ranks at Spring Lane, will coach the club’s Colts team next season alongside his duties at Warriors.

The 19-year-old forms part of Rob Cook’s new-look coaching set-up ahead of the 2018-19 Midlands One West campaign.

Director of rugby Cook has also landed vastly-experienced coach Nick Tisdale who returns to the club to assist with the senior team with a particular focus on the forwards.

"I am absolutely delighted to have secured the services of Nick and Ted,” Cook said.

“I have an absolute belief that the quality of coaching is what underpins how any club at any level performs.

“In Nick we have undoubtedly one of the regions most experienced coaches who over many years has added value to every set up he has been involved in.

“His vast experience and his eye for detail will add a massive amount to playing standards.”

Hill who has already obtained his level two coaching badges has been named in Warriors’ senior academy for next season.

And former Gloucester back Cook believes the talented teenager who starred for England under 20s this summer has a bright future in the game.

"Ted joins us at a time when his professional career is just beginning and many including myself tip him to become a top Premiership player and future full England international,” Cook said.

“Despite his relative inexperience as a coach he has shown with his sessions with our colts, he is an inspiration to those players who are close to him in age terms and see what his hard work, skill and dedication has achieved.

“In addition he is able to translate the high level of coaching he is receiving at Worcester Warriors into his coaching."

Malvern gained promotion from Midlands Two West (South) last term and are now preparing for their season opener against Bromsgrove at Spring Lane on Saturday, August 25.

"This is an exciting time for all at the club,” Cook added.

“We have got some quality players at all levels, a thriving youth and mini section and I would encourage anyone who wants to be part of this to get down to pre-season training, held from 6.45pm on Tuesday and Thursday for both senior players and colts.”
