Wakefield Trinity Appoint Sean Long as Assistant Coach

The club are pleased to announce the appointment of former Featherstone Rovers Head Coach, Sean Long, as our new Assistant Coach. For the rest of the 2023 season and 2024.

Head Coach, Mark Applegarth, has said “I’m delighted to have Sean on the coaching staff for the remaining six games and next season.”

“He brings a wealth of experience with him and I think he will add real value to our coaching and playing group. I feel like we will compliment each other well.”

The incoming Long says he is “thrilled to be joining Wakefield at such a crucial point for them in the season. We had a good chat about what Mark felt I could bring to the club.”

“Wakefield are now firmly in the business end of the season and every performance counts, I can’t wait to get out on the field with Mark and the team.”

Everyone at the club welcomes Longy and we hope his influence is clear. Both this season and in the next.
