Glasgow Warriors have finally signed Logan Trotter nearly two years after the back-three player made his first appearance for the club in a pre-season friendly.

Now 24, Trotter was a member of the Warriors academy and was a stand-out performer with Stirling Wolves in Super6. But, after being invited to train with the senior Glasgow side in the summers of 2021 – playing against Newcastle in the September – and 2022, he moved south to join London Irish last September.

The Exiles went into administration this year, leaving Trotter free to agree a two-year contract with Glasgow, who recently announced the signing of his former London Irish team-mate Kyle Rowe.

“I’m over the moon to be coming home,” Trotter said on the Warriors website.

“It’s not a move I thought I’d be making this soon, so I’m absolutely delighted to sign for a club that means a lot to me.

“The move to London Irish came at a great time for my development, I’d say. There was a great group of boys and a great group of coaches that really helped me identify areas of my game to improve, and opened up my eyes to a new way of playing and enjoying my rugby. I’m looking forward to continuing that at Glasgow.

“I’ve kept track of Glasgow wherever I’ve been, and the freedom with which the team plays is something I really love. Coming off a season as successful as last year, I want to help this group take the next step. I can’t wait to get stuck in, honestly.”

Warriors head coach Franco Smith added: “We were impressed by what we saw when Logan was with us during pre-season last year, and he’s someone who is clearly hungry to succeed at the highest level. We look forward to working with him over the next couple of seasons and helping him continue his development at Scotstoun.”
