Former Kings Langley schoolboy signs for Scottish Premiership rugby side

 Published on: 3rd October 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

A former top rugby player with Kings Langley School has scored a contract with a Scottish Premiership side. Curtis Reynolds, 19, signed for Gala in mid-September and is now looking forward to an exciting season in the top flight. Reynolds, who weighs in at 18st 2lbs and 6ft 2ins tall, played at Number 8 for the school where he studied for three years. But he has signed on for the Scottish borders club to play loose head prop. Curtis, whose dad Ian, has run the Cart and Horses freehouse pub in Common Wood for 24 years, said: “It’s proper rugby country and I can’t wait to get stuck in.” The club has provided an apartment for the young hopeful who admits to wanting to go all the way for club and his country – Wales. Born in Plymouth to a Welsh dad, Reynolds says he grew up watching the red dragons and their illustrious rugby history, especially in the 70s and more recent Six Nations Grand Slams and World Cup successes. He comes back regularly to stay with mum Ann in Chipperfield and to see dad at the pub. Hear what else Curtis had to say, and more, in the October edition of My Kings News, which will be distributed on October 7.
