Pyrgos: Joining Glasgow

Sky Bet

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."
