Edinburgh have received a boost ahead of next season, with wing Tom Brown extending his contract with the capital club for another year.

Brown, 25, made his debut in September 2010 against Cardiff Blues, and has since amassed 83 caps and 60 points in the black and red shirt.

Born and raised in and around the city, the former pupil at The Edinburgh Academy rose to prominence through the Scotland age-grade, 7s and A programmes, before receiving a full international cap in the nation's historic 9-6 victory over Australia in 2012.

He played a key part in Edinburgh's route to last year's European Challenge Cup final, featuring in all knockout stage games, and has been a regular in Alan Solomons' team this season, starting in 13 games and scoring two tries.

"I'm delighted that I've managed to settle another deal with Edinburgh, and can look forward to another year at the club," he said.

"On a personal note, I'm an Edinburgh boy and it's always been a dream to represent the club, so it's great that I can now look forward to next season at BT Murrayfield.

"My time at the club so far has been brilliant, and, at this point in my career, there's no place I would rather be than Edinburgh."

He added: "The club has developed me over the years, and I feel like I'm coming into my prime, so I'm hoping to continue to give back to the club and contribute to Edinburgh’s success."
