Alex Grove signs a new deal with Worcester Warriors
Scotland centre Alex Grove has committed his future to Worcester Warriors by signing a contract extension.
Grove made his Worcester debut in 2006 and has made more than 100 appearances for the struggling Aviva Premiership club.
The 26-year-old said: "The club has clearly shown its intent by the people recruited behind the scenes. The foundations are now in place and I want to be part of things when we ultimately move up the table.
"The club has really shaken things up and that's what we've needed.
"In the next three or four years I believe that it is achievable to become one of the top sides in the Premiership."
The Grove deal will come as a welcome boost for Dean Ryan's side who are rooted at the foot of the Premiership table with nine defeats in as many games.
Rugby director Ryan said: "I am delighted that Alex has chosen to commit to the club at a time when we are building for the future.
"We are looking to bring long-term success to this club and to achieve that we must ensure our best players want to be part of our journey.
"Alex embodies the type of player that will help us achieve our vision and this announcement is a great endorsement to the work everybody is putting in."
