London Scottish have swooped to add three players to their Championship squad for next term.

Head coach Peter Richards this week acquired the services of London Irish lock Eoin Sherriff, London Welsh scrum half Ed Hoadley and Oxford University fly half George Cullen.

Sherriff, 27, played 11 times for Saracens in a two-year spell at the Premiership club between 2012 and 2014, and last season featured on six occasions for London Irish, who will also be playing in the Greene King IPA Championship next season.

Hoadley, 22, is well known to Richards having worked under him at London Irish and he has already enjoted a spell at London Welsh.

And 22-year-old Cullen joins the club fresh from back-to-back Varsity triumphs with Oxford, which saw him score all 12 points in last year's 12-6 triumph over Cambridge.

Meanwhile, second row Neale Patrick, who made 18 appearances last term, has extended his contract at the Athletic Ground by another season.
