Edinburgh announced that Irish winger Michael Allen will depart the club at the end of the season to embark on career in the financial sector.
The former Ulster winger joined the Scottish club in 2015 and went on to make 31 appearance. In a statement released through Edinburgh, Allen said his drastic career change wasn’t taken lightly.
“The decision to pursue a new career away from rugby was an extremely hard one to make and one that took a lot of thought and deliberation,” Allen said
“As a family, we have fallen in love with Edinburgh and see the place as a home-from-home, so we’re delighted to continue living in the city and I look forward to supporting the boys in the seasons to come.”
Allen made 48 senior appearances for Ulster, having debuted against Leinster in 2012.
Edinburgh thanked Allen for his commitment to the club, and wished him well for the future.
