Solomons staying with Edinburgh

Date published: December 4 2015

Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons has signed an extension to his contract, keeping him at the club until June 2017.

The PRO12 club started the 2015/16 season strongly with four consecutive league wins, and recently recorded back-to-back victories against French opposition in the Challenge Cup.

Scottish Rugby Chief Executive Mark Dodson said: "Alan is successfully building on the improved performances achieved by Edinburgh last season, which saw them reach the Challenge Cup Final and secure the 1872 Cup.

"The club has made a positive start to the new season and we wanted to ensure Alan was able to continue to develop the vision he started in 2013. We are therefore very pleased he has committed to Edinburgh through to 2017.”

Alan Solomons said: "While we have made good progress over the past two seasons, we still have some way to go and I am pleased to be able to continue to build on what we have achieved.”
