PETER HORNE is the latest current Glasgow Warriors player to re-commit to the club, having signed a two year contract extension which will run through to the summer of 2022.

The 30-year-old joins Nick Grigg, Rob Harley, Ali Price, Tommy Seymour, Kyle Steyn, Fraser Brown, Matt Fagerson, Oli Kebble and Stafford McDowall in agreeing a new deal which will see him play under Danny Wilson next season.

A product of the highly successful Howe of Fife rugby nursery of the mid-2000s, Horne made his Glasgow Warriors debut against Ulster in 2009, and has since picked up 166 appearances, behind only Chris Fusaro [another Howe of Fife alumni], Graeme Morrison and Harley on the all-time club caps list.

He has scored 24 tries and 400 points for the club, and has been capped 45 times by Scotland, but is not currently part of the Six Nations squad.

​”I’m really happy to be staying,” said Horne. “Glasgow has a special place in my heart. I’ve been here for 11 seasons now, and I’ve been part of the journey to get where we are today. I’m really pleased to sign up for another two years.

“This club is home to me. To be able to come in every day, see your best mates and then go out and play alongside them is a special feeling.

“I’ve spoken to Danny [Wilson] a lot – I’ve had a good dialogue with him over the course of the season. He’s got a great vision for the club and how he wants us to keep progressing, and it’s something I want to be part of.”

Glasgow Warriors assistant coach Kenny Murray added: “Pete’s been a fantastic servant to the club. He’s a real leader on and off the pitch – he brings a lot of attention to detail to his game, and he’s also a guy who drives standards within the squad.

“On the pitch, he’s an incredibly committed individual. He’ll put his heart and soul into every performance. He’s a real asset to the team – the fact he can play both 10 and 12 makes him a particularly valuable member of our squad. It’s great for us to be keeping him for another two seasons.”
