Bowden joins Trinity with immediate effect

Wakefield Trinity are delighted to announce the signing of Josh Bowden from Hull FC on a deal until the end of 2023.

Bowden joins up with the squad with immediate effect and bolsters Trinity’s front-row options moving forward.

The 30-year old has a wealth of Super League experience, having featured for Hull FC 180 times.

Standing in at over 6ft, Bowden will add size and experience to the Trinity squad.

Speaking on his move to Trinity, Bowden said: “I’m really excited about a fresh challenge here at Wakefield.

“I’m looking forward to getting started and getting some minutes under my belt. It’s been difficult having to wait in the wings recently but now I’m just excited about the prospect of getting back on the field.

“I had a phone call about an opportunity to come here and I snapped their hand off really. Hopefully I can get plenty of games and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it .”

Head Coach, Willie Poching, added: “It’s great to be able to bring someone of Josh’s experience into the squad and to add to the quality of our group going forward.

“I’m sure he’ll add some quality, but he’ll definitely add some competition for our big fellas in the middle.

“He arrived at the club this morning and already added some size so we’re excited about him getting going for us.

“It’s day one so we’ll get him up to speed with everything and try to get him out there as soon as we can to play. I’m sure, when he does, he’ll be fantastic for us on the field.”
