London Irish have announced that England winger Topsy Ojo has signed a new two year contract that will keep him at the Club until the end of the 2013/14 season.

Topsy joined the London Irish Academy in 2003 and made his first appearance for the senior Exiles squad in 2005 against London Wasps.

The 26 year old who has won two caps for England, has scored 56 tries in his 145 appearances to date, including four tries in his opening eight Aviva Premiership matches of this campaign.

Last season Topsy scored ten Aviva Premiership tries to finish third top try scorer in the league and in doing so earned himself the club’s player of the season award. He was also part of the successful England Saxons side that won the 2011 Churchill Cup.

Commenting on his new deal Topsy said: "I have enjoyed every moment of being a London Irish player. The potential we have at the club is massive and I am excited that I can be a part of it over the next few seasons. I still have ambitions to be involved in the England set up and believe London Irish is the best place to make this happen."

London Irish head coach Toby Booth is thrilled to have Topsy Ojo available for another two seasons: "Topsy has been a highly consistent player for this club over a number of seasons now and his commitment to the shirt and to his team mates is second to none.

"He is a tremendous attacker with ball in hand and an outstanding defender. His try scoring record for the club speaks for itself and we are certainly very pleased that he has decided his immediate future is with London Irish."
