James signs Warriors contract

Former pupil James Malcolm's rugby career has soared since he left school in 2012 and he has just signed a two-year professional contract with Glasgow Warriors.

James displayed a natural talent for the sport early on and the former Head Boy's impressive skills on the rugby pitch quickly secured him a spot in the School's 1st XV.

James, who plays hooker, was quickly spotted by selectors and he has represented Scotland at U17, U18 and U20 level. The 21-year-old also has 13 caps for Glasgow Warriors - two of them for the European Champions Cup in which he scored a try.

James, who is also studying mechanical engineering at Strathclyde University, has recently returned from playing in Italy where his performance helped his Warriors side to victory.

He said: "The school played a massive part in getting me to where I am in my rugby career. The P.E. teachers both introduced me to the game and taught me the basic skills all while building my understanding and respect for the values of the game."

The School's Head of Rugby Craig Sorbie said: "Hutchesons' is immensely proud of James' achievements since leaving the school and we enjoy watching him inspire the next generation of young rugby stars."

Congratulations James!
