Worcester centre Alex Grove has signed a new contract with the Aviva Premiership club.

The 26-year-old becomes the second Warriors centurion to commit their future to the club this season following Chris Pennell's new deal earlier this month.

Grove, who has three caps for Scotland, made his Warriors debut against Newport Gwent Dragons in 2006 after progressing through the club's academy.

"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."

He has gone on to be a consistent performer in the Warriors' backline and made his 100th appearance for the club against Sale Sharks last December.

Grove 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."

Worcester director of rugby Dean Ryan added: "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."
