Travis Signs On The Dotted Line

Tyron Travis is the latest academy player to sign with the first team after agreeing a one-year deal with the Club.

Travis, 19, joined the academy two years ago along with Luke Hooley and has had a difficult start to his professional career at Wakefield.

Head of Youth Mark Applegarth explained, “Tyron was first brought to the club by my predecessor and caught everybody’s eye with his physical strength and direct carries, unfortunately for Tyron his knees need some rehabilitation due to tendonitis which he has suffered from before he joined.

“This contract will give Tyron some piece of mind and allow him to fully focus on getting his knees 100% and not rushing back to earn himself a contract for next year, the main thing is obviously a player’s health, so we will be rigorous in his rehab and then when he is 100% ready it will allow Tyron to move forward giving himself the best chance possible of becoming a first team regular”.

Travis was delighted with the deal stating, “It is a dream come true to sign a professional contract in Rugby League, I am extremely proud and understand that I have a lot of hard work in front of me. I am fully focused on my rehabilitation, so I can show Chris Chester and his team what I can do and cannot wait to get started next season”.
