Caledonians sign up Scottish trio
May 10, 2000
Scottish internationals Andy Nicol, Gordon McIlwham and Jason White have pledged their immediate futures to Glasgow Caledonians.
Nicol and White have signed three-year deals while McIlwham and team-mate Gordon Bulloch have put pen to paper on two-year contracts.
Nicol led Scotland to the Calcutta Cup win over England last month while White made his debut in the same game.
Former Bath man Nicol was appointed Reds' captain when he joined from the English club at the start of the season.
``When I joined the Reds, I welcomed the opportunity to return to playing rugby in Scotland,'' said Nicol.
``I'm pleased that I can extend that commitment by signing this new contract.''
And Caley chief executive, David Jordan, was equally delighted with the news that the players had committed themselves to the team.
``It's great news for us that players of the calibre of Andy, Jason, Gordon and Alan have signed contracts before the end of our season.''
