KELLY BROWN will leave his assistant coach role with Glasgow Warriors to return to London at the end of this month for family reasons.

“Relocating during the pandemic has been a real challenge. We moved north in the summer and since arriving my family have struggled to settle in Glasgow,” explained the former Scotland back-row, who -re-joined the club last August after 10 years as a player and academy coach at Saracens.

“An opportunity has come up down south and for the wellbeing of my family we have taken the decision to return.

“My family’s happiness is my number one priority and we have taken the difficult decision to return to London to be closer to where my children grew up and where their friends are.

“Glasgow Warriors will always have a special place in my heart, and I’d like to thank Glasgow and Scottish Rugby for the opportunity and understanding they have shown towards my family and me. It’s a great club to be have been involved with and I believe they have a strong future ahead.

“I’d like to wish Danny, and everyone at the Warriors, all the best for the rest of this season, and beyond.”

Head coach Danny Wilson said: “We are understanding of Kelly’s situation and family has to come first.

  1. That’s a shame. I met him at a party not long before it was announced that he was coming back to Scotland. He was really looking forward to it but Covid has knackered a lot of plans and dreams
