London Scottish can confirm that Neale Patrick has extended his contract, and will remain with the club for a second season.
The second-row made 18 appearances last season and had a crucial influence on the line-out alongside the likes of Rory Bartle, Will Carrick Smith and Josh Thomas Brown.
The 6′8″ Scot crossed the line for his first try in the 75-24 victory over Moseley on the final day of the 15/16 campaign, and impressed in his opening season at the club after spells at Plymouth Albion, Rotherham Titans and Cornish Pirates.
Patrick, who represented Scotland Under 20’s in the 2008 Six Nations, is pleased to be staying with the Scots for another year.
“I’m delighted to have signed for next season in what is a very exciting time for the club. The way the club is moving forward will make it a great place to be.” Said the 27-year-old.
He added: “There were some memorable moments last season, most notably the away win at Yorkshire Carnegie, and I’ll be hoping to create many more this time around.”
Head Coach Peter Richards is delighted to add another current player to next season’s squad.
“Neale had a great year for us and we are pleased that he is staying. If injury didn’t prevent him from playing in January he would have played even more for us, but I’m confident that he will be a great addition to our pack, especially at line-out time.”
