Wakefield forward extends deal

Wakefield Trinity forward Jay Pitts has signed a new contract at the Club which will keep him in the Red, White & Blue until at least the end of 2022.

The back-rower was a consistent performer for Chris Chester’s team in 2020 and in the absence of Jacob Miller on occasion, Pitts was given the opportunity to captain the team, which was a testament to his leadership skills.

Speaking to Trinity TV, Pitts said: “I’m over the moon and really happy to get it sorted.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first year, despite all the difficulties in the year. It was a no-brainer for me to extend really.

“2020 was a frustrating season, with all the stopping and starting, plus all the self-isolating I had to do, but I’m just ready to kick on now and get going.”

Head Coach, Chris Chester, added: “I’m really pleased Pittsy is here for another few years.

“He has been really consistent for us since joining last season and it was a no-brainer for all parties to extend his deal.

“Pittsy is a quality player, a really good professional and a leader, which is why we’re all delighted he’s here for the next couple of years.”
