Michael Shenton joins Trinity

Wakefield Trinity is thrilled to announce the appointment of Michael Shenton as Assistant Coach to Head Coach Daryl Powell.

This appointment adds considerable strength to the support team that Daryl is putting together at the club.

Michael joins us from Hull FC where he has had much success over the last 12 months in his role as Head of Emerging Talent. 

In his playing career Michael was one of the outstanding centres of the Super League era representing Castleford mainly and Saint Helens with great distinction. 

Michael gained International honours representing England on 12 occasions.

He teams up again with Daryl Powell who was his coach when Michael captained the team in their successful period at Castleford Tigers.


Head Coach Daryl Powell said: ‘Michael Shenton is the most impressive young coach in the game I believe. Everyone I have spoken to about him since I got the Wakefield job was gushing in the praise of the job he has done in developing young players at hull,  and also the way he presents himself.’ 

‘Obviously I know him having worked with him as a player, he’s one of the best professionals I have seen and he will bring all of that knowledge that he developed to the coaching table. I have no doubt he will be a head coach of the future and will be an outstanding acquisition for Wakefield Trinity in the coming years.’
