Latest pictures of Wakefield Trinity’s stadium redevelopment surface on social media

Wakefield Trinity

The end to 2022 has been a really significant period in Wakefield’s recent history.

First thing’s first, the thought off relegation. After a tough mid-season which saw them lose to Toulouse twice and in doing so create a real threat of relegation as Trinity came up short against the French side at the Magic Weekend.

Shortly after, Trinity were on the foot of the table but eventually Willie Poching and co managed to turn the season around. After an encouraging display against St Helens, Trinity found a way to beat the likes of Wigan to help secure survival.

Then came Trinity’s next big decision: to part company with Poching and his assistant Francis Cummins going into 2023.

Poching had again masterminded a strong end to the season, but the club decided to take a new direction appointing Mark Applegarth who has earnt a great reputation for his development of young players.

All of this has been in the foreground of a bigger picture which has seen Wakefield begin the redevelopment of their stadium after money granted to them by the local council.

Trinity wasted no time in beginning the project which now holds even greater significance following the recommendations from IMG this week which sees an effective return to licencing with hopeful Super League clubs chasing a Category A status to ensure their status in the top tier.

A modern stadium will likely be part of the criteria to have a Category A status and the re-development at Belle Vue will certainly help the club.

Pictures of the development process have been uploaded to Twitter this week by Lee Bateman demonstrating the change which has already taken place at the ground.

They also depict the cool design sported by the diggers getting the work done as the club prepares for a new era.
