Wakefield Trinity is delighted to confirm that Max Jowitt has committed his future to the club by signing a new two-year deal which will see him in the Red, White & Blue until the end of 2025.
The fullback, who came through our youth system and made his Super League debut in 2014 at just 17 years of age, joins teammate Mason Lino in pledging his future to Trinity beyond the current campaign.
Jowitt made a fine start to life in Super League, picking up the Albert Goldthorpe Rookie of the Year award in 2016 after a string of outstanding performances which helped Trinity secure a top-eight finish. The arrival of Scott Grix in 2017 meant Jowitt had to remain patient to establish himself as our first-choice fullback. However, over the last couple of seasons, our number 1 has proved his worth and value to the team with his performances.
Currently sidelined after picking up an injury back in February, Jowitt is hoping to feature in our next Super League outing at Catalans Dragons next weekend.
Speaking on his new deal, Jowitt said: “I’m really happy to be extending my stay at the club. When it came down to it, it was a pretty easy decision.
“Having some chats back and forth with Mash (Mark Applegarth), Michael (Carter) and my agent, we came to an agreement which works for all parties, so I’m really happy.
“Whilst I’m obviously excited for the next two years, my main focus is on getting back to full fitness over these next few weeks and doing my best for the team, in what is an important period.”
Trinity Head Coach, Mark Applegarth, added: “I’m delighted to secure a player of Max Jowitt’s quality for the next two years. I know that there was a lot of interest in him.
“At 26, Max’s best years are in front of him and, in my opinion, a fit and firing Max Jowitt is one of the finest attacking fullback’s in the competition. He has a great pass-selection as well as the pace to go with it.
“To have him tied up until the end of 2025 is fantastic news for the club.”
