Bristol have announced the signing of centre Andy Short from Worcester Warriors for next season.

The deal will see Short remain at the RFU Championship outfit for at least two seasons.

The 21-year old made his debut for Worcester in 2010 and has gone on to make 28 appearances and has scored nine tries.

Short was a member of the England Under-20s Grand Slam-winning side in 2011 - and went on to start on the wing in the Junior World Championship final against New Zealand in the same year.

Short told the club's official website: "I'm looking forward to representing Bristol, it's a club that have a great reputation for nurturing young players and giving them a platform to perform."

Bristol head coach Liam Middleton added: "His potential is great, but more importantly his driven and ambitious character fits well with the culture at Bristol.

"Andy has the ability to play in the centre and on the wing, posing a try-scoring threat through his pace, power and footwork.

"His defence is strong both in the 13 channel and on the wing. Andy represents a significant strengthening of the Bristol squad for the next two seasons."
