London Scottish president Rod Lynch says things can only get better for full back Peter Lydon.

The 23-year-old scored 210 points in 26 matches this season taking his overall points tally to 469 in two seasons at the Athletic Ground.

The Irishman has scored four crucial match-winning kicks, which included a last minute penalty at Headingley to register a 30-27 victory against Yorkshire Carnegie, followed a week later by a drop goal in the 79th minute at home to London Welsh, securing an 11-10 win.

Lightning struck twice later in the season, with an 80th minute touchline conversion completing the double against Yorkshire Carnegie, and another one the week after gave the Scots a 19-17 win at Old Deer Park.

"Pete Lydon has had a massive impact on our season playing at full back, and latterly at fly half," said Lynch.

"He has shown himself to be a great all-rounder, scoring tries, kicking points, and masterminding games.

"I am delighted he has signed for next year because I think the best is yet to come from him.”

Head Coach Peter Richards added: "Well done to Peter, he fully deserves this award. He has been a stand-out player for us this year, his work ethic and commitment are first rate and a testament to his success.”

Meanwhile, Scottich second row Evan Olmstead has confirmed a switch to Premiership side Newcastle Falcons for next season.

The 25-year-old Canada international played six times for the exiles this season after arriving at the Athletic Ground in January.
