Tom Howe and Andrew Kitchener sign for Saracens
Saracens is excited to announce the signing of Tom Howe and Andrew Kitchener on short-term deals.
The pair join the club from Worcester Warriors on three-month deals, and add cover to the squad for the upcoming Gallagher Premiership fixtures.
Howe is an experienced winger who had been at Sixways since 2017, becoming a proven try-scorer in the top flight of English rugby.
Kitchener, who came through the academy at Worcester eight years ago also has plenty of Premiership experience and will add further depth to the second-row department.
Howe is excited for a new challenge at StoneX Stadium.
“I’m really looking forward to joining Saracens and it truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity playing for one of the biggest clubs in world rugby.
I’m thankful to the staff for signing me and can’t wait to get stuck into training with the boys and play with some of the best players in the game.
The Worcester situation was heartbreaking and the club will always have a place in my heart. This new chapter is one my family and I are so excited for and I can’t wait to put the shirt on for the first time.”
Kitchener is also delighted to be moving to North London.
“I’m gutted to have left Worcester having come through the academy and been a part of the club for so long, however I’m grateful for the opportunity Saracens have given me to be part of such a successful team and I am looking forward to getting started and meeting everyone.”
Director of Rugby Mark McCall is pleased to welcome both players to StoneX for the coming months.
“Firstly, our thoughts are of course with everyone at Worcester Warriors during this very difficult time.
We are excited to see the impact that Tom and Andrew can make in a Saracens shirt and with their experience I have no doubt that they will make the most of their time here.”
