Edinburgh centre Matthew Scott signs contract extension

Edinburgh centre Matthew Scott has signed a two-year extension to his current deal with the club.

Scott joined as an elite development player last summer and has agreed terms to keep him at Murrayfield to 2014.

He has since featured on a regular basis, scoring tries against both Munster and Leinster.

"It's good to know my performances have merited a lot of game time and this contract at the club I've grown up supporting," said the 21-year-old.

Edinburgh head coach Michael Bradley has seen several players pen contract extensions recently, with captain, Greig Laidlaw, stand-offs Harry Leonard and Gregor Hunter and forwards David Denton, Stuart McInally, Sean Cox and Steven Turnbull, all signing new deals.

"It's fantastic for the club to have bright young players like Matt [Scott] committing to the club," he said.

"He took full advantage of the opportunity offered to our younger players when the internationalists were in New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup and has worked hard to keep his place in the squad since their return.
