Date published: May 21 2015

Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that utility back Connor Braid will leave the club at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old Canadian international joined Warriors for the 2014/15 season, initially on a three-month deal, and has made seven appearances for the club, accumulating 11 points with four conversions and a penalty.

Braid, who went on loan to London Scottish in December 2014, returned to Glasgow in February and was involved with the club during the Six Nations.

"We've seen Connor develop hugely over his short spell here and at London Scottish," commented Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend.

"We've called upon his services a number of times throughout the season and he has always stepped up to the plate.

"He is a great person to work with and we hope he continues to prosper and shine wherever he goes."

Braid said: "I would like to thank everyone at Glasgow Warriors for giving me the opportunity to play and be involved at this great club.

"I have learned a lot in my time here, and will use my experiences as I look to progress in my career."
