David Cherry

Edinburgh announced the signing of former Scotland U20 star David Cherry in March 2018. The 27-year-old hooker – who joined the club from French Fédérale 2 side Stade Niçois signed a one-year-deal to rejoin his hometown team.

Cherry – who spent three seasons with English Championship side London Scottish before moving to the South of France – has represented Scotland 10 times at U20 level and started all five games at the 2011 Junior World Championship in Italy.

A product of Merchiston Castle School, Cherry played his senior rugby at Currie before making the move to English Championship side London Scottish in 2014.

The hooker soon cemented himself in the Championship outfit’s starting XV, but after three seasons at the Athletic Ground - in which he made 54 appearances, scoring 45 points in the process - Cherry joined Stade Niçois as part of Scottish Rugby’s performance pathway partnership.

After impressive form in both the Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup, Cherry was named in the Scotland squad for the 2019 Six Nations.
