Gloria Keech, Saracens Mavericks Franchise Director has issued a message to fans to confirm that the franchises players and staff are now furloughed through the government scheme.

Upon issuing the message Keech assured fans that “We want to be in a strong position so that we can get up and running as and when this crisis passes” and that “ at Saracens Mavericks we pride ourselves on being a family, and now more than ever we all need to come together and support each as we always have done”.

You can read the full message below:

“I hope you, your family and friends are staying safe during these extraordinary times.

I am writing to you today to update you on what we’re doing at Saracens Mavericks to secure a future for the franchise amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Mavericks’ players and staff employed by the franchise are now furloughed through the government scheme to support businesses through this period.

This will ensure that we are protecting the club and means that as soon as social distancing restrictions are lifted, we can get back to work.

As a result of the decision to furlough our players, this means that they cannot undertake work on behalf of the franchise. While this does mean that you will see less of them on our social media channels, we will make sure that everyone is updated with the latest news from Saracens Mavericks.

These are not easy decisions to make, however, rest assured that everything we are doing is in the best interests of Saracens Mavericks and everyone involved.

We want to be in a strong position so that we can get up and running as and when this crisis passes. There is a real determination to not only safeguard our future as a franchise but also look after one another during this time.

At Saracens Mavericks we pride ourselves on being a family, and now more than ever we all need to come together and support each as we always have done. We are so grateful for all of the love and support that we have had over the last few weeks as we have all tried to adjust to this new normal.

Thank you for your continued support.

Gloria Keech, Franchise Director – Saracens Mavericks”
