Tom Litchfield signed his first full-time contract with Saints during the summer of 2020.
The Bedford-born centre was an ever-present for Northampton’s Under-18s during the 2019/20 season, having developed within the Samuel Whitbread Academy system and played junior rugby for Bedford Blues.
The powerful centre featured for Saints in the 2019 Premiership Rugby 7s tournament at Franklin's Gardens before opening his Saints account in a preseason friendly against Worcester Warriors in 2020. Litchfield then headed to hometown Bedford on loan during the 2020/21 season as part of Saints' strategic partnership with their Championship neighbours.
Internationally Litchfield's good form for Saints' Under-18s earned him the call to the England Under-20s squad, where he featured in a friendly fixture against Newcastle Falcons XV in March 2021.
