Bristol Rugby GM Corin Palmer leaves the club

Bristol Rugby today confirmed that General Manager Corin Palmer has left the club as part of a significant cost reduction program.

Bristol Rugby CEO Steve Gorvett explained: “Given the current very difficult economic conditions, we are having to look at all areas of the business to reduce costs and we have therefore reluctantly had to part company with Corin.”

Corin Palmer joined Bristol in the summer of 2006 from London Irish as Rugby Operations Manager. He filled this role for two years before being promoted last summer to the newly created position of General Manager.

Gorvett paid tribute to the work that Corin has done in his time at the club:

“As Rugby Operations Manager Corin was responsible for creating and implementing our Team operation procedures and protocols which put Bristol Rugby at the forefront of the Guinness Premiership.”

“Since being General Manager he has been responsible for the commercial side of the business in what has proved to be a very difficult environment. However he has instigated a number of initiatives and consequently delivered excellent results in a number of areas.”

“We wish him well for the future and offer him our sincere thanks for all he has done for the club.”
