We are delighted to announce our new cohort of Under 15 scholars who are due to start their journey into professional rugby league at Wakefield Trinity in September.
The scholarship is the first stage of our professional pathway and is designed to run along a players community club commitments and develop their technical and tactical skills, psychosocial qualities and their physical abilities.
Mark Applegarth, Head of Youth was delighted with the job the youth team had done in securing Wakefield’s next generation of talent.
“Firstly I would like to welcome all new players and their families to Wakefield Trinity and I’m looking forward to seeing them all develop as people and players over the coming years.
“Jamie Field and Rodger Lambert have done a fantastic job along with our fantastic scouting team this year in securing the best talent to join Wakefield Trinity. The Talent Identification is arguably the most important part of our pathway in securing not only talented players but the right people to join our club.”
