Ali Crossdale made the move south to North London in the summer of 2016 after leaving Sedbergh School.

Crossdale made his senior debut in the 2016/17 Anglo-Welsh Cup against Harlequins at StoneX Stadium.

The young winger, who has played at fly-half and full-back, grew up supporting Sale Sharks and was involved in their Academy in his mid-teens before a spell with Newcastle Falcons.

His first memories of playing were kicking with his father at Bowdon RFC with club coaches Tony Bennet, Jason Duffy and Simon Mulholland (Sedbergh) providing him the platform to progress into the professional game.

Crossdale made his first-team debut for Saracens against Harlequins in 2017 and grabbed a brace of tries in the 2018/19 Premiership Rugby Cup as the Men in Black reached the final. He has since played 16 times for Sarries, but will move to Wasps at the end of the season.

The Academy graduate furthered his development in 2019 with a season in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Whilst at Sarries, Crossdale has been capped by England Under-20s and featured in the 2017 and 2018 World Rugby Championships.
