New deal: Alex Grove

Worcester Warriors have announced that Alex Grove has signed a new contract to extend his Sixways career.

Grove becomes the second Warriors centurion to commit their future to the club this season following the news that Chris Pennell had signed a new deal earlier this month.

The announcement is seen as a major positive for the club as another one of Warriors' top performers has signalled their intention to join Dean Ryan on his journey to bring long-term success to Sixways.

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

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

"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," said Grove.

"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."

"I am delighted that Alex has chosen to commit to the club at a time when we are building for the future," said Worcester boss Dean Ryan.

"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."
