Homegrown Uren commits future to Bristol Rugby

Bristol Rugby’s commitment to developing homegrown talent continues as Andy Uren agrees a new contract.

The Bristol-born scrum half – one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from the Bristol Rugby Academy in recent years – commits to a two-year extension.

A product of Keynsham RFC in the Combination, Uren has graduated through the ranks to make sixteen first team appearances, having been with the club since 13 years old.

“A key part of our vision is to see young, English-qualified players play for Bristol Rugby."

“A key part of our vision is to see young, English-qualified players play for Bristol Rugby and represent their country. Andy’s decision to commit to the club is another example that he believes he is in the best place to continue that journey and progression,” Head Coach Pat Lam told bristolrugby.co.uk.

“Big credit to Mike Hall and the Academy staff for nurturing a young Bristolian through to this stage and we look forward to continuing his development towards his dreams.”

Uren became the third youngest person in Bristol’s history to represent the club in a competitive fixture when he came off the bench versus Gala in 2013.

He added: “I’m loving my time at Bristol Rugby and really excited about my future at the club. The brand of rugby that Pat [Lam] and his coaching team are playing suits my game and I feel as though I am learning and developing every day.

“It’s a proud moment for me and my family every time I take the field and represent the club – there is nothing more special than playing in front of the Bristol supporters in the city I grew up in.”
