Ayr Rugby Football Club

Centre Stafford McDowall has signed his first professional contract with the Glasgow Warriors and joins their squad as a full-time player with immediate effect. 



The 20-year old joined Ayr in 2016 and has had an integral role in the first XV ever since. 


McDowall has enjoyed a wealth of success during his tenure at Millbrae, most notably winning the BT Premiership title in 2017. 


His exploits in pink earned him international recognition, captaining Scotland U20s at the Junior World Cup in France earlier this year. 


McDowall has been in electric form this season and has so far tallied five tries for Ayr. He earned his first start for the Warriors as a Fosroc Academy Stage Three player last month and has been involved in the squad ever since. 


His contribution to the Warriors over the past month was acknowledged when Dave Rennie nominated him for McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month for November. 


As a first-year pro Stafford will be aligned with Ayr and will play when not involved with the Warriors. From all at Ayr RFC we wish him the very best in his professional career.
