Wakefield Trinity is delighted to announce that Danny Kirmond has returned to the club. He will take up a role, alongside recently appointed Michael Shenton, as Assistant Coach to Head Coach Daryl Powell.
Head Coach, Daryl Powell said: ‘Danny Kirmond is a Trinity legend from the time he spent here. 10 years of toughness and effort from a quality player at one club means a lot to a fan base. I am so pleased he has come on board as a coach to pass on the things he learned as a player over the years. He’s a great bloke as well as a knowledgeable rugby man who will add hugely to the coaching team already in place.’
Danny joined Wakefield Trinity as a player in 2010 on loan from Huddersfield Giants and went on to become one of our most respected and influential players in the Super League era. He made the permanent move to the club in 2012 and part-way through that season was appointed club captain.
He later in the season led the club in reaching the Super League play-offs, a role he served with great distinction for his hometown club, until 2019. In total Danny made 174 appearances for our club scoring 46 tries. He also represented England in a pre-season International Origin Series against the Exiles in 2012. His Trinity career ended playing his last game at Warrington on March 30th 2020.
After Trinity, Danny continued his playing career joining York City Knights for the 2021 season. Last season at York his coaching career began when he took on the additional role of player/assistant coach. We wish Danny all the best in his new role with Wakefield Trinity and are sure he will bring the same commitment and leadership he always displayed as player and Club Captain.
