Voyce pledges two years to Wasps

London Wasps’ international winger, Tom Voyce has signed a new two-year contract with the club that will keep him at Adams Park until the end of 2008-9.

Voyce, who joined Wasps in the summer of 2003, has been the club’s top try scorer ever since, having racked up 55 tries from 123 appearances, including the quickest try in Premiership history – which took 9.63 seconds – against NEC Harlequins in November 2004.

The most regular player in Wasps’ current squad, 122 of Voyce’s appearances have been starts, and until his call-up to play for England in the Autumn internationals of November 2005 he had made 58 consecutive starts, breaking Jamie Noon’s previous club record of 56.

“I’m really pleased to be staying at Wasps for another two years, and I’m excited about what those two years will hold for me and the club,” said Voyce.

“Wasps made me an international player and I have greatly enjoyed and benefited from working closely with coaches like Ian McGeechan, Shaun Edwards and Warren Gatland and amongst a squad of quality players.

“I won the vast majority of my international caps whilst playing at Wasps, and as I still have a huge aspiration to play for my country again in the future, I believe that Wasps is the best place I can be if I am going to work on my game and challenge again for international honours.

“With the raft of young players who are coming through at the top level, added to the experienced players and quality signings we have made recently, the next few seasons promise to be an exciting time at Wasps and I think there are a lot of trophies still left in this team.

“There are structures in place, both on and off the field, to bring out the best in the players, and I want to be a part of that and hopefully it will also help me force my way back into the England set up.

“I’d also like to thank all the fans for the backing they have given me, both on the pitch and personally, in the past three years. They have been fantastic and I hope I can repay them with some good performances over the coming two seasons.”
