London Scottish extend aces’ contracts

London Scottish backs, Oli Grove and Mike Doneghan, have signed contract extensions, seeing them remain at the club following major roles in the 2013/2014 season.

Scotland-qualified Grove has signed on for a further two years to add to the three he’s already accumulated and former Scotland under-20, Doneghan, has signed on for another year at the club.

Head coach James Buckland said: “I’m absolutely delighted we have secured deals for two very important players.

“Mike has done a great job at 13 recently but his overall game throughout the campaign has been impressive and he has been one of our most consistent performers.

“Oli is an important character to have around the squad, so for him to commit his long term future to London Scottish is great.”

Doneghan has made 21 appearances for the club so far after joining from Rotherham Titans last summer and has shown promise both on the wing and in the centre.

Grove joined London Scottish from Birmingham and Solihull in 2011 and has had a central role ever since.

London Scottish Chief Executive, Kenny Baillie, said: Their commitment is evidence that, as a club, we are improving year-on year and our push for the end of season play-offs is further proof of this.

“I am pleased to say this is the first of a series of important announcements on player recruitment and our loyal supporters, sponsors, investors and patrons can expect more good news in the coming weeks.”
