紀錄片將介紹伍斯特勇士隊的復興之路

這家橄欖球俱樂部於10月5日清盤,債務超過2000萬英鎊,包括欠英國皇家稅收和海關的600萬英鎊。

他在接受BBC Hereford & Worcester採訪時說,重要的是人們了解 "留下的遺產",並希望提高當地對俱樂部的認識,讓更多人對這項運動感興趣。

管理人Begbies Traynor稱,由Sandford先生和O'Toole先生領導的名為Atlas Worcester Warriors Rugby Club Ltd的財團有一段時間的排他性,以達成交易,拯救俱樂部。

該俱樂部自2018年12月以來一直由商人Jason Whittingham和Colin Goldring擁有,當它在高等法院清盤時,有一個其他債權人的名單,以及HMRC。

其中包括1500萬英鎊的債務,這是它在收到Covid體育生存方案付款後應向政府償還的債務。

自舊俱樂部清盤以來,一些球員和員工已經離開,桑德福先生說,他承認這對每個人來說都是一段艱難的時期。

"他說:"在俱樂部發生的事情中,他們可能有時會感到孤立無援。

他希望這部紀錄片能讓觀眾了解到這一點,並補充說:"你不需要了解橄欖球就能理解人性,也能發現這一點。"

製作這部紀錄片的GRIT電影公司首席執行官桑德福先生說,他希望這部紀錄片講述的故事能夠激勵和 "推動積極的變化",並讓人們討論諸如壓力和心理健康問題。

導演博-凱魯亞克說,他希望這部電影能夠展示 "在球場上和球場外都要成為那樣的強者",並希望在2023年初在流媒體服務上播出。

英超橄欖球有限公司知道這個系列,並說它支持這個項目,以幫助推廣比賽。


The rugby union club was wound up on 5 October with debts of more than £20m, including £6m owed to HM Revenue and Customs.

Speaking to BBC Hereford & Worcester, he said it was important people understood the "legacy that's been left behind" and wanted to raise awareness of the club locally and get more people interested in the sport.

Administrator Begbies Traynor says the consortium led by Mr Sandford and Mr O'Toole, called Atlas Worcester Warriors Rugby Club Ltd, has a period of exclusivity to agree a transaction to save the club.

The club, which had been owned by businessmen Jason Whittingham and Colin Goldring since December 2018, had a list of other creditors when it was wound up in the High Court, as well as HMRC.

It included debts of £15m, which it was due to pay back to the government following Covid sports survival package payments it received.

Since the old club was wound up, a number of players and staff have left and Mr Sandford said he recognised it had been a tough time for everyone involved.

"They've probably felt isolated at times with what's been going on at the club," he said.

He hoped the documentary would bring that home to viewers and added: "You don't need to understand rugby to understand human nature and to find that relatable as well."

Mr Sandford, CEO of GRIT Movies, that is making the documentary, said he wanted it to tell stories that inspire and "drive positive change" and get people talking about things like stress and mental health issues.

Director Beau Kerouac said he hoped the film would show "what it takes to be that strong both on the pitch and off the pitch" and aims to broadcast it on a streaming service early in 2023.

Premiership Rugby Limited is aware of the series and said it was supportive of the project to help promote the game.
