Campbell to leave Glasgow

Nick Campbell made his Warriors debut against Ulster in September 2011

Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that forward Nick Campbell will leave the club at the end of the season to join English Championship side Jersey.

The 23-year-old lock made his Warriors debut against Ulster at Ravenhill in September 2011 and later that month scored his only try for the club in the 23-19 victory over Leinster at the RDS.

The former elite development player made eight appearances in the RaboDirect PRO12 and came off the bench in the narrow 10-8 loss away to Castres in the Heineken Cup this season.

Meanwhile, Glasgow have also announced the departure of Canadian sevens specialist, Taylor Paris when his one-year deal expires at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old winger has made two appearances for the Warriors since joining the club last summer and scored a try against Newport-Gwent Dragons in the 60-3 victory at Rodney Parade in February.

Glasgow Warriors head coach, Gregor Townsend said: "Due to the size of our squad both players probably haven't played as much as they would have liked, but when called upon they've done everything asked of them.

"We'd like to thank them both for contributing to what has been an exceptional squad effort this season and we wish them well for the future."
