London Welsh have secured the services of 22-year-old Nick Scott for a further year after the wing signed a contract extension with the Premiership club.

Scott has crossed four times for the Exiles this season including a dramatic last gasp intercept winner to beat Bath at the Kassam Stadium in October.

It was his second intercept try of the season having similarly pounced in the club's first-ever Premiership victory, against Exeter Chiefs. He also crossed in the Exiles' recent narrow defeat at the hands of champions Harlequins.

It continues the huge impact the wing has made at London Welsh since joining on loan in February 2012 from Bath, where he came through the academy.

Scott played a leading role in the club's Championship success, scoring seven tries in ten appearances during the play-offs, including a hat-trick at Doncaster, a crucial try in the second leg of the Welsh's semifinal win against Bedford at Old Deer Park and another in the first leg of the final against the Cornish Pirates at Mennaye Field.

"I'm very happy to have signed a contract extension with London Welsh," said Scott. "It's a club that has been very good to me, showing faith and giving me an opportunity to play in the Premiership.

"I have been at the club just under a year and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I feel my game has improved working with Lyn Jones and the other coaching staff and I'm confident it will continue to do so under their guidance.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of consolidating London Welsh's Premiership status with a great bunch of teammates," he added.

London Welsh head coach Lyn Jones said: "We're very pleased to extend Nick's stay at London Welsh. He's taken his opportunity since his arrival at the club and I hope that he can sustain his growth and improvement, and that he enjoys his time at London Welsh."
