The West Midlands (Regional) League (WMRL) Premier Division outfit have announced they will play from the 11,499-capacity Sixways Stadium, home of Premiership Rugby outfit Worcester Warriors, next season.
Warriors owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham formed Worcester Football Limited this week, a company which Harris confirmed had been set up to run Raiders. Goldring and Whittingham, both directors of Morecambe, have declared significant interests or control in the company.
Football Association (FA) rules state “no person, company or business institution… may at any time be interested in more than one club” without “prior written consent”.
When contacted by The NLP on Friday, the FA said it had “not been notified of any change to the ownership of Worcester Raiders” but Harris said the relevant information had been put forward that day, anticipating no problem with getting the deal ratified.
The move has led to speculation the club will be rebranded as Warriors but feedback from Sixways indicates it will “remain as Worcester Raiders”.
