McLaren moves to Glasgow
July 20, 2000

Scottish test centre James McLaren is the latest player to be recruited by the Scottish Super district Glasgow Caledonians.

The 28-year-old former Stirling player, who has eight Scotland caps, has been with Bourgoin-Jallieu in France for the past two seasons but will join the Caledonians for the forthcoming Welsh/Scottish league and Heineken Cup campaigns.

On announcing the signing David Jordan, The Reds' Chief Executive said: "We have agreed terms with Bourgoin and James. Though a few formalities have still to be completed, he should be with us in plenty of time before the start of the Celtic League programme next month."

By returning home, McLaren is following in the footsteps of another former Stirling player, Mark McKenzie, the Scotland A fly half who left Bourgoin to join the Reds earlier in the summer.

Though born in Stirling, he learned much of his rugby in Australia where he played rugby league for Canberra Raiders.
