We are delighted to announce the signing of another of our highly rated youngsters Yusuf Aydin on a four-year deal.
Aydin will like Jack Croft, will complete his studies at Wakefield College then move on full time to Chris Chester’s squad.
Aydin, who has just turned 18 is 104kgs and came through the scholarship playing his community rugby at Eastmoor Dragons. He also represented England Youth in 2016. He plays at Prop or Loose forward.
Head of Youth Mark Applegarth said, “Yusuf is another one of our highly rated youngsters that caught the eye of Chris through some tough, no nonsense displays. The academy did it tough last year but Yusuf always stood up to be counted and showed some great leadership through his actions.
“He’s a great kid with a tremendous work ethic and attitude and I’m delighted he’s been rewarded for his actions. He knows this is a great opportunity for him and I know he’ll keep ripping in and working hard”.
Head coach Chris Chester was full of praise for the youngster saying, “He’s played big minutes in nearly every game in the U19 last year in the middle as a first year normally against lads that’s older than himself and managed to standout. I think he’s got a bright future in the game and I’m delighted we’ve been able to secure him on long term deal here at Wakefield Trinity”.
