Wakefield Trinity have secured the signing of Jay Pitts on a two-year deal from London Broncos.
The 29-year old will return back to the Mobile Rocket Stadium on a two-year deal after three successful years in the capital with London.
Pitts started his career wearing the Red, White & Blue back in 2008 and made 22 appearances over a two-year spell.
The back-rower has also had spells at Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC and Bradford Bulls during his career.
Pitts, who is a local lad from Ossett, told Trinity TV: “To have the opportunity to come back here, where it all started, is massive for me and all of my family. I’m Wakefield born and bred so it’s really special.
“I’ve always kept my eye on Wakefield. They did a lot for me when I was younger and they gave me my first shot at Super League rugby, first-team rugby and academy rugby. I spent a lot of time here and there were people that invested a lot of time into me so to come back here and be able to repay them is a massive honour for me.
“I’m looking forward to meeting all of the lads and getting to know everyone. It’s an exciting time for me and I’m glad to be coming back home to Wakefield.”
Trinity’s Head Coach Chris Chester said: “There was always a willingness to get Jay back to Wakefield. We spoke to his agent quite regularly and it was an easy deal to get done.
“Jay’s really excited about joining Wakefield Trinity. I see some real good leadership from him and that’s the reason I wanted to bring him in. I think he’s been exceptional for London Broncos. He can play on the left and on the right too.
“I’ve also got to compliment him and Alex Walker because even though they both knew they had signed elsewhere for 2020, they still gave their all and were very professional in the way they went about their business.”
Trinity fans can join the club in 2020 by purchasing a Membership, available in store. Prices have been frozen for next year with Memberships also providing access to all reserves matches at the Mobile Rocket Stadium, alongside first team, women’s, under-18s and under-16s action.
