Northampton Saints can today announce that Tom Kessell will leave the Club.
In the three seasons the scrum-half has spent in Northampton, Kessell racked up 22 appearances in Black, Green and Gold after making his Saints debut against Glasgow Warriors back in 2016.
The Cornish Pirates product, who first joined the West Country side as a youngster in 1995, excelled in the Championship and earned representative honours in 2010 when he toured Canada with England Counties before his performances in the 2014/15 season leading to The Rugby Paper naming him the best scrum-half in the Championship.
The scrum-half also helped the Wanderers list the Premiership Rugby A League trophy on two occasions; beating both Gloucester United and Exeter Braves in consecutive years.
“It’s been an absolute privilege to pull on the famous Black, Green and Gold jersey in my three seasons at Saints, but the time has come for me to move on.
“Being able to play with this group of guys and make the memories I have has been incredible. I will always look back on my time here fondly and I wish everyone at Saints all the best of the future.”
