Glasgow have announced that Scottish Rugby Elite Development Programme graduate Adam Ashe has signed a one-year deal at the club.

Glasgow have revealed that Scottish Rugby Elite Development Programme graduate Adam Ashe has signed a one-year professional deal with the club.

The contract ties Ashe in until at least May 2015.

21-year-old Ashe was called up to Scotland's tour at the end of June and won his first cap, playing a full game against South Africa in Port Elizabeth.

“It's been a whirlwind few months for me and I'm delighted to become a full professional with the Warriors,” Ashe told glasgowwarriors.org.

“Playing club rugby in New Zealand and going over to South Africa to represent my country are two experiences I'll never forget.

“Now I've got my first professional contract I want to continue to work hard and hopefully I'll get more opportunities to play for Glasgow next season.”

Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend added: “Adam is the latest player to come through the Elite Development Programme and undoubtedly has a bright future ahead of him.

“He is also the latest to have been awarded the Macphail Scholarship and we've received very positive reports about him from the coaches he's been working with in New Zealand.

“Adam will add to our depth in the back-row next season and it's great news for the club that he's going to continue his development in Glasgow.”
