Harlequins can today (8th August) confirm that winger Holly Myers has left the Club to join French side Toulouse ahead of the new season.

Myers joined Harlequins in 2016 and was part of the side that won the league and cup double in the same season, during the Club’s association with Ayelsford Bulls. She subsequently went onto score in the 2018 Tyrrells Premier 15s final against Saracens Women at Ealing Trailfinders the following year.

Despite having a 2018/19 marred by a severe shoulder injury, Holly managed to work her way back to fitness towards the end of the campaign and was awarded the captaincy of the Development XV, before transitioning briefly back into the 1st team ahead of the playoffs.

Harlequins Women Co-Head Coach Gary Street said: “We would like to thank Holly for her fantastic service to Harlequins Women, since its inception in 2016.

“She has been a valued and popular member of our squad throughout her time here and we wish her all the best for the future.

“I’m sure the move to France will be a fantastic experience for her and that she will benefit as a player from being in that environment.”

Myers added: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Harlequins’ incredible supporters for the way they have got behind myself and the rest of team over the past three seasons. It has been a pleasure to step onto the field every week to play for you - you are the heartbeat of this great Club and it wouldn’t be where it is today without you.

“I would also like to thank the coaching and support staff for their dedication and hard work, and for giving me the amazing opportunity to wear the famous quartered shirt.

“I am thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity to play abroad. The move will have its challenges, but I am excited to take the next step of my journey."
