Gloucester Rugby announce signing of hooker Tom Lindsay

Gloucester Rugby can today confirm that hooker Tom Lindsay will be joining the club from Wasps ahead of the 2015/16 season.

The 27 year old will arrive at Kingsholm after spending his whole professional rugby career with Wasps after joining as a 16-year old.

During his time in High Wycombe, Lindsay received international recognition with the England Saxons in the Churchill Cup of 2010, and has made well in excess of 100 appearances since making his debut in 2008.

Lindsay will bring proven Premiership experience and ability to the front row as Gloucester continue to build a squad with strength in depth ahead of the 2015/16 season with hookers Richard Hibbard and Darren Dawidiuk in the first team squad.

Speaking about today's announcement, Director of Rugby David Humphreys confirmed that it's another excellent piece of recruitment as Gloucester look ahead to next season.

"We are delighted to be bringing a player of Tom's quality and experience to the squad for next season. His set piece work is good, he carries the ball well, he's English qualified with a lot of experience and we hope has his best years ahead of him.

"Next season is unique due to the delayed start of the Aviva Premiership and the intensity of the season after the RWC will test the depth of every squad. We are preparing for that and continue to build a squad with quality players competing for each starting spot.”

Tom Lindsay spoke to the club website about his excitement to get started in a Gloucester shirt.

"I have so many good memories of my time at Wasps and will continue to give nothing less than 100% in my remaining time at the club. I owe a lot of people there a big thank you.

"But I feel that the time is now right for me to experience a new environment to help me really develop and achieve my potential. The opportunity to move to Gloucester is an exciting one, and one I'm really looking to when the time arises.

"I've always enjoyed playing at Kingsholm, it's a great, traditional rugby venue and, with the city hosting Rugby World Cup matches in 2015, it's going to be a great place to be next season.

"The squad for next season is really taking shape, I was very impressed with David Humphreys' vision for the future of the club and it'll be good to be part of it.”
