Scotland prospect Gregor Hiddleston has signed his first full-time deal with Glasgow Warriors.

The Dumfries Saints talent has now become a full-time professional at Warriors after signing an initial partnership contract in the summer of 2022.

Hiddleston, 21, is touted as one of Scotland's brightest prospects having previously represented his country at under-20 level. 

The hooker had impressed in the Super Series with Stirling Wolves and was named player of the match in the final as the club lifted the trophy.

Hiddleston made his professional debut for Warriors in last month's Investec Champions Cup clash against Exeter Chiefs.

Now, he is thrilled to have signed full-time terms at the club. He said: “I’m over the moon.

"To have been on a partnership deal first of all, then to get the chance to go all the way and become a full-time pro, it’s an incredible feeling.

“I’m still on cloud nine from my debut, to be honest! I was really nervous during the week, but as the game got closer I was absolutely fine and just relished the challenge.

“There’s a great group of players here – you only have to look at the strength in depth at hooker. We’re all competitive and push each other on, and it’s a great chance for me to learn from some of the best hookers in Scotland.

“I just want to keep working hard and see what comes. I’m ready for any opportunity that comes my way.”

Head coach Franco Smith added: “Gregor is someone who we believe has a great deal of potential, and is a young man keen to learn and improve.

“He earned his opportunity to make his professional debut and he’s a player who is still developing, something we are very excited about.

“We look forward to continuing to work with him, and to see him continue to develop over the coming years.”
