Scotland International Kevin Bryce makes the move from Scotstoun to Old Anniesland.

GHK Rugby Club has kicked-off an ambitious player recruitment drive with the signing of Kevin Bryce, who just last week announced his retirement from Glasgow Warriors.

The 30-year-old, who had two spells with the Pro14 side, earned three caps for Scotland during an impressive professional rugby career.

Just days after playing his last game for Glasgow Warriors in a blowout win against Edinburgh, Kevin has announced the next step in his lifelong rugby journey will be as a player-coach at his local rugby club.

Kevin said “I have really enjoyed my time with Glasgow Warriors but I am now looking forward to starting a new career while coaching and playing at an extremely ambitious rugby club.

“I still feel I have lots to give on and off the pitch. I learned a lot during my six years as a professional rugby player and look forward to passing on my knowledge to the next generation of players coming through at Old Anniesland.

“GHK has an amazing history and exciting future. I can’t wait to get started and help the club reach its potential”.

Kevin will join his former Warriors teammates Chris Fusaro and Zander Fagerson as part of a vastly experienced coaching staff.

GHK President Ronnie Gourley said: “We are sure that Kevin’s experience will be hugely influential over the coming seasons. With incredible facilities, one of the best grass pitches around, thriving mini and midi rugby sections, and experienced players and coaches like Kevin driving the club forward, GHK presents as a compelling option for any Glasgow-based rugby player.

“GHK is truly a community club and our supporters, including main sponsors Cairnhill Structures, all share a vision to make GHK a major force for promoting rugby in the West of Scotland.

Glasgow Warriors assistant coach Kenny Murray added: “Everyone at the club wishes Kevin all the best with the next chapter of his life. It is great to see a professional player move back into the club game. The support that GHK will offer as he builds his next career will no doubt be invaluable.”

Bryce, who won his first cap for Scotland in Toronto in 2014 during the summer tour victory over Canada, adds to a rich tradition of players such as Shade Munro, Murray Wallace and Allan Watt who have played for both GHK and Scotland.

Its yet more positive news for the club, which this week saw their U-15 side play out an exciting draw with Marr in the West Regional Cup Final, with both teams sharing the trophy.
