GLOUCESTER winger Marcel Garvey has left the club by mutual consent. The 23-year-old made 84 appearances in all competitions since his debut in 2001/02 and has scored 28 tries in his five-year career at Gloucester.
"Marcel sees his future elsewhere," said head coach Dean Ryan. "He is an extremely talented individual but both parties feel he needs a change in his career path and we wish him well in the future."
Garvey, who graduated from St Peter's School in the city, burst onto the scene with a hat-trick against Bristol in 2002/03 and this season has made three Guinness Premiership appearances.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
