Scholarship young guns join the Academy!

13th August 2021

We are delighted to announce the signings of nine of our Scholarship players into the Academy after impressing over their two-year stay.

The Academy is the next stage of our professional pathway ‘The Wakefield Way’ and the new recruits will now make the step up to professional rugby, training once a week to meet their new teammates, whilst transitioning from community rugby into the professional ranks ahead of starting full time in September.

Head of Youth Mark Applegarth is delighted to welcome the new recruits and said: “I’m really looking forward to seeing all the lads get started and move on to the next stage of their development.

“We have some really exciting coming through the ranks at the moment and these lads will no doubt add value to the Academy squad.

“Jamie, Andreas and the scholarship team have done fantastic job in developing them and I’m looking forward to pushing them even further in the Academy.”
