Harry Allen: Will team up with the Harlequins academy
Harlequins have added former England Under-18s hooker Harry Allen to their academy set-up for next season.
The 20-year-old, who has also played for England U16s, will make the switch to the Stoop from Saracens.
And Allen is relishing the chance to prove himself at the Aviva Premiership finalists.
Allen told the club's official site: "I am really excited to be joining the club. The set-up and style of play really suits me.
"This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to developing as a player under the Harlequins coaching staff."
Quins academy manager Tony Diprose added: "I have seen Harry play over the past few years and he has always impressed.
"A new start at Harlequins will be great for him and I have no doubt he will look to push our current hookers for the team's No.2 shirt."
