Date: 2 Mar 2021


Wasps can today confirm that scrum-half Ben Vellacott will be leaving the club at the end of the current season, to join PRO14 side Edinburgh Rugby.

Wasps Head Coach Lee Blackett said: “I would like to thank Ben for all his effort during his time at the club.

“Ben obviously had a frustrating time with injury last season. We are starting to see signs of him getting back to his best and I’m sure we will see more of that for the rest of this season.

“We wish Ben and his partner Beth all the best for their future in Scotland.”

Vellacott added: “It has been an absolute pleasure to play for Wasps over the last two seasons.

“I want to particularly thank the physio department for the endless hours they spent helping me get back to full fitness after my injury.

“I have made some great friends during my time at Wasps and I will give my all for the rest of the season.”
