Bath Rugby have announced that back row Miles Reid has signed a new contract with the Gallagher Premiership club until the summer of 2027.

Reid made his senior debut for Bath in January 2018 against Newcastle Falcons in the Anglo-Welsh Cup after graduating through the club's academy. He has gone on to make 91 appearances for the club.

"I am absolutely delighted. This is my hometown club and a club that I have supported for years since I was a kid so to stay here for a few more years is brilliant," he told the club's official website.

"It’s really special also for my family, I grew up here watching the team and heard so many stories from my dad about the golden days so it’s really special to be staying here and trying to recreate that.

"Ultimately I want to win something here and progress this team. We’ve come on leaps and bounds in the last two years so to see what we can do in the future is really exciting.”

Bath Head of Rugby Johann van Graan is delighted with Reid committing his long term future with the club.

“The first thing to mention about Miles is his qualities off the pitch. Not only is he a leader but he loves the club and he loves the Blue, Black and White.

"On the pitch, Miles has developed into a very good 6, 7, and 8. His contact skills have improved so much and Miles is becoming one of the true pillars in our group. I am very thankful that Miles will be staying at Bath Rugby.”

Bath are positioned third in the Gallagher Premiership table with seven wins from 12 matches.
