SEAN Kennedy has become the latest Glasgow player to agree a new deal to stay at Scotstoun. The 29-year-old scrum-half, who re-joined the Warriors in 2019, was only on a short-term contract but has now re-signed “for the foreseeable future” according to a Glasgow press release. 

“Sean has been a real asset to us this season,” head coach Danny Wilson said. “He’s impressed when on the field – controlling the game well and driving the players around the park. Sean’s experience has really shone through during this period and it’s great to be able to make him a part of our plans for the future.”

Kennedy, who joins Scott Cummings and Tom Gordon in committing his future to Glasgow, first played for the team on loan from Edinburgh in the 2012-13 season. He  then went back to the capital club and barring a loan spell with London Irish stayed there until 2019. His return to Scotstoun was initially on a partnership deal with Stirling County, and he eventually made his second debut for Glasgow in October last year.

“I’m thrilled to be given a contract with the club and it’s great to be able to stay at Glasgow for the foreseeable future,” he said. “We’ve got a really talented squad of players which makes the decision to stay even easier and I’m grateful to Danny for giving me the opportunity. Results haven’t gone our way but we know we’re still a strong squad of players that I’m excited to be a part of.”

  1. Agree plenty depth at 9,looking like someone could be leaving. Sk very much a five + seconds scrum half,enough of them in the country.

  2. Don’t understand this signing. Quality Depth already Price and Horne, in International Window Dobie and Matawalu.
    I’m going to have to deduct a point from Dodson and SRU this time around.

    Let the pros do their jobs.

  3. Several issues of note in this instance of welcome news – primarily, that of a fine player previously on a short-term contract now being deemed worthy of an extended deal.
