Scotland Under-20 starlet Alex Dunbar has been rewarded for a string of impressive performances after being rewarded a two-year contract with the Glasgow Warriors.
Dunbar who turns 20 on April 23 has already played twice for the Warriors and attracted rave reviews when he started in the 25-13 defeat of Ulster.
The centre joins from Scottish Hydro Premier 1 side Selkirk and Warriors head coach Sean Lineen is adamant Dunbar is a name to look out for in the future.
He said: “Alex started for us against Ulster and did a very good job.
“He is a youngster who could have a massive future in the game if he wants it. He just loves to play rugby.”
Dunbar, who has represented Scotland through all age groups, started his rugby education Annan RFC but came through the ranks at Scottish rugby’s National Academy.
He became the 21st academy product to gain a professional contract and he was quick to pay tribute to his former coaches.
He said: “I've always thought about earning a pro contract with the Warriors when coming through the age-grades in Glasgow so it's great to finally do it. It's always something that I've aspired to.
"Winning in Ulster was a great achievement. I was just delighted to be part of the team at that level and I've thoroughly enjoyed training with the squad this year.
"The Academy has been great for me and I'd like to give a special thanks to my coaches Alun Powell and Bryan Easson who have put in a lot of work with me over the past year.”
