Ross Chisholm has signed a new contract with Harlequins, the club have confirmed.
The versatile back, who has been with the Club for 10 years, said he was delighted to be re-signing with the club.
Chisholm, who began his rugby at Haywards Heath RFC and progressed through the Academy system with Harlequins during loan spells with Esher, played a key part in Quins winning the Challenge Cup in 2011 and started in the LV= Cup final in 2013. He scored four tries in 12 appearances last season and Gustard said he had been very pleased with his progress this season.
“Ross has always been a brilliant member of the Harlequins squad over the last 10 years and it was felt by all the staff that his constant energy, willingness to learn, team-first mentality and talent were deserving of a new contract where we feel we can eke out more from his ability,” said Gustard.
“His ability to perform to a high level either at full-back or on the wing means he is great asset for us and this versatility will be key as we reduce the size of our squad and develop our game.
“He is consistently looking to improve himself as we have seen when he stepped up at fly-half in the Premiership Shield this season and taken on the kicking responsibilities. He is a very coachable young man which is a key characteristic in retention and recruitment as we look to build on momentum and improve our individual and collective responsibility.”
Chisholm said: “This has been my Club for 10 years and I love playing my rugby here. There is an attitude in the camp that everyone has bought into across the playing staff, the coaching staff and everyone at The Stoop and Surrey Sports Park.
“Gussy has come in and given us huge belief this season, forging a winning environment that we now want to capitalise on.
“It means so much to be re-signing with Harlequins with its heritage and prestige across the globe, and now we are looking forward to adding a new chapter or two to that story with some silverware.”
