Academy centre Nick Carpenter will join Championship newcomers Hartpury ahead of the 2017/18 season.
Carpenter signed professional terms in 2013 and made 15 appearances for Bristol Rugby, including ten in the Championship. He also spent time on loan at Championship sides Nottingham and Doncaster Knights.
“Nick has been a fantastic ambassador for the club over the last seven years,” said Academy Manager, Mike Hall.
“He has unfortunately had his opportunities curtailed by a number of injuries, but the professionalism with which he has approached every day at training is testament to his character.
“It is always difficult to see young, local players leave the club, however his contribution to Bristol Rugby over the last few seasons should not be underestimated.”
