Wildcats Snap Up Under 18s Talent
The Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have today signed four new players to boost the Club's academy side.
Brad Day, Cameron Leeming, Jack Anderson and Luke Metcalfe have all signed deals with the Club that will keep them in the red, white and blue until November 2013.
Brad Day is both a centre and a back rower and has signed from local club Leeds Rhinos along with Cameron Leeming who is also a centre. Jack Anderson has joined The Wildcats from Hull FC and is most at home playing loose forward. The final signing, Luke Metcalfe, has signed from local Championship side Featherstone Rovers and is another strong back rower.
The four boys, who are all either 15 or 16, are joined by another five players that have signed from our own Wildcats Scholarship scheme. Corbyn Kilday, Jack Gledhill, Tom Middleton, Daniel Mirfin and Flannan Naismith have all pledged their signatures to the Under 18s squad. However, due to a number of the Wildcats young produce being in Australia, a picture and press release will be sent out separately on their return.
The boys will begin training on Monday evening at The Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
Head of Youth Performance Tony Drury commented, "I would like to welcome all the young men to the Wildcats. Each and every player has the skill, maturity and potential to develop into a regular first team player and I am looking forward to seeing the boys in action for Wakefield."
"With our help and guidance I wish them all the best for the future"
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
