Wakefield Trinity have confirmed that Jordan Crowther has signed a new deal to remain at the club until the end of the 2023 season.
The 24-year-old is a proud product of the Trinity youth system, coming through both the Scholarship and Academy programmes before making his senior Super League debut in 2014.
In recent years, Crowther has established himself as an important part of Chris Chester’s squad and will continue to be a part of it for the next two years.
Despite it being a stop-start campaign so far for Trinity’s #19 in 2021 due to injury, Crowther has his sights set on returning from injury as soon as possible and getting a consistent run in the team.
“I’m over the moon to stay at Trinity. I’ve been a Wakey lad all the way through growing up and it was always my first choice to stay, so I’m happy it’s over the line now,”commented Crowther.
“I always wanted to stay here. It’s been a frustrating year for me with injuries and I just want to pay back the faith that’s been shown in me and get plenty of game time next year.
“I really want to look and make that loose-forward spot my own. Joe Westerman has been a big mentor for me and has taught me an awful lot in training and in games.
“However, with Westy (Joe Westerman) moving on at the end of the year, I think it opens up that spot and I’m going to be chomping at the bit to try and get that shirt.”
Head Coach Chris Chester added: “I’m really pleased that Jordy has signed a new deal to stay at his hometown club.
“He’s worked particularly hard over the years to establish himself as a first-team player and he has become a really important part of the squad for us.
“He’s done a good job playing out of position at times this season, but there’s a real chance for him to nail down that loose-forward spot moving forward and I know Jordy will be hungry to do that.
With him coming through the academy setup here and supporting the club as a child, I know that Jordy loves Wakefield Trinity and for him to be staying at the club is great news for everyone.”
