Wasps fly-half Charlie Atkinson has been promoted to the first team squad for the 2021/22 season after signing a new contract with the Gallagher Premiership club.

A product of Wasps Under 18 Academy, Atkinson graduated to senior Academy last summer and has gone on to make 15 first-team appearances for the club since then. He has also represented England Under 18 and Under 20 teams in the past.

“I am very happy to make the step up to the first team next season," said Atkinson to the official website of the club.

“I have really enjoyed playing this season and I am looking forward to continuing to work with this great group of players and staff.”

Wasps head coach Lee Blackett is looking forward for Atkinson to propel his career with the senior squad.

“We are extremely happy that Charlie has agreed a new contract with us and is making the step up to the first team squad next season.

“Charlie has impressed with the opportunities that he has got this season. He’s had an outstanding first 12 months in men’s rugby and shows a daily desire to keep improving.

“We are all looking forward to working with him further in the coming years.”

Wasps are positioned eighth in the Gallagher Premiership table with eight wins from 19 games.
