Two more years for Crowther!

Jordan Crowther has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of 2021!

Crowther, who made his debut for Trinity as a 17-year old back in 2014, has been rewarded for his good form by agreeing a new deal to remain at the club.

The 22-year old has enjoyed a run in the side this season and has looked comfortable at loose-forward and hooker.

Crowther becomes the latest member of Chris Chester’s squad to sign a new contract, with Reece Lyne and Bill Tupou both extending their stay last week.

On his new deal, Crowther said:

“I’m really happy to be staying at Wakefield for the next two years. It’s my hometown club and I always dreamed of playing for them as I watched on from the terraces.

“It’s been like a breakthrough year for me and I’ve been really enjoying my rugby this season, so I’m hoping that continues now.

“It was an easy decision for me to re-sign; the lads are class and the environment as a whole is a good one to be involved in.

“I really appreciate all the support that the fans have given me and the boys as a whole. We’re coming up to an important period of the year now, so it’s time to crack on and push for a place in that top five!”

Trinity Head Coach, Chris Chester, added:

“I’m really pleased Jordy Crowther has extended his stay with the club for another two years.

“He’s been in really good form over these last few weeks and I thought on Friday night he was outstanding.

“People forget he’s only 22-year-old because he’s been involved in the first-team for a number of years.

“I’m looking forward to working with him over the next few years and seeing him develop further.”
