Edinburgh have announced that Scotland international Dave Cherry has inked a new contract with the club.

Having started his career with London Scottish in 2014, Cherry moved to Edinburgh in 2018 and has been an integral part of the club since then.

The 31-year-old was called up in Scotland's squad in 2019 but his international debut came during the Six Nations tournament earlier in the year and has featured in five Tests since then. He also had represented Scotland Under 20 side in the past.

“Obviously there’s been big changes at Edinburgh and I’m really enjoying it. I think the club’s heading in the right direction so it’s somewhere I want to be,” said Cherry.

“I’m delighted to have re-signed and I’m looking forward to where the club goes from here.

“I think my performances have been fairly good of late. We’ve also got a lot of competition in the hooker department now but I just want to have the starting jersey.

“I want to push myself and push my team-mates. The culture’s great here and I think that’s driving the standards of each and every player in the squad.”

Edinburgh are positioned second in the United Rugby Championship table with five wins from seven matches.
