GHA have announced that former Scotland Sevens cap Ben Addison has joined the club as a player/coach from Stirling County.

Addison, an experienced campaigner, was an assistant coach with County last season and is a former age-grade internationalist.

He will help to bring on the young backs at the Braidholm club who just missed out on promotion from BT National League One last term.

The club have also announced that prop Lyall Archer, a Scotland under-18 cap, has joined from Glasgow Hawks as well as second-row Johnny Lyons from Murrayfield Wanderers.

Back-row Robert McKinstry (Glasgow Hawks) and Seitaro Usada (Glasgow University) will also compete for first team places.
