Playoff-chasing Gloucester have announced that three players – Jason Woodward, Will Britton and Jack Stanley – will leave Kingsholm at the end of the 2021/22 Gallagher Premiership season. The ambitions of George Skivington’s team to make the last four have come down to the final round of fixtures and ahead of their home showdown with Saracens, an announcement has been made about the players who are soon exiting the club.

That list is headed by Woodward, the former New Zealand U20s player who came through at the Hurricanes and was called into the senior England squad for training some years ago under Eddie Jones.

A statement read: “Gloucester can confirm that three players will be departing the club ahead of 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 went on to play 67 times in Cherry and White scoring 90 points. A skilful full-back, Woodward had some great moments in the Gloucester shirt.

“Will Britton’s time at Gloucester was made challenging due to a significant long term injury picked up in a pre-season friendly. Despite not getting out on the field in a competitive fixture, Will has been a great professional and has worked hard off the field.

“Jack Stanley linked up with Gloucester in March 2020 with the prop joining the Cherry and Whites from Edinburgh. He has made 16 appearances in Cherry and White and we look forward to seeing him progress in his next chapter.”

Chief operating officer Alex Brown added: “We are truly grateful for every player that pulls on the famous Cherry and White jersey for their contribution to our club. Each player that is moving on this season has contributed to the journey we are on as a group, both on and off the field, and we wish them the very best for the future.”
