Pyrgos: Joining Glasgow

Glasgow have bolstered their squad with the signing of rising Scotland stars Ryan Grant, Robert Harley and Henry Pyrgos.

Prop Grant, who has been named in the Scotland A team, arrives at Firhill after three years at Edinburgh.

Grant has agreed a two-year deal with the beaten Magners League play-off semi-finalists, along with former Scotland Under-20s internationals Harley and Pyrgos.

Lock Harley will look to fill the hole left by Dan Turner and Tim Barker, while 20-year-old scrum-half Pyrgos returns north from Loughborough University.

Glasgow chief executive Kenny Baillie has welcomed the signing of the trio.

Baille said: "I'm delighted that three young, ambitious Scottish players have committed their future to Glasgow Warriors. They are joining the club at a time when it is growing both on and off the pitch.

"The excitement of the Magners League play-offs gave everyone a real lift and with the move to our new training and medical centre at Scotstoun Stadium just a few days away, all three lads will benefit enormously training alongside some world-class players in first class facilities."
