Phil Cringle has signed a new contract with London Scottish keeping him with the side for his fourth season.
The former Scotland Under 20 international signed with Scottish from French side US Carcassone in the summer of 2016. He has subsequently gone on to play 63 games for the Exiles and has established himself as a fan favourite among the supporters.
Cringle who also spent time with Edinburgh in the early part of his career, will compete with new arrivals Xavier Valentine and Kyle Whyte for the starting tighthead spot next season.
The 25 year old, who made a total of 19 appearances for the Scotland Under 20s was happy to be staying with the Scots for another season.
“I am happy to be staying on for my fourth season at Scottish and I am looking forward to the new challenge come pre-season. I look forward to seeing some of the great people around this club for another year. It also means I can continue working with and coaching the Under 18s who have a massive League decider on Sunday!”
Director of Rugby Dave Morris was pleased to retain Phil’s services for another season.
“Phil brings a lot to the Club both on and off the field. He is a very important part of this squad. We are happy that he has signed a new deal and will be a part of what is looking like an exciting squad for next season.”
