Wakefield snap up Kay from Toronto

Wakefield have confirmed the signing of winger Liam Kay from Toronto on a deal until the end of the 2022 season.

The 28-year-old will initially join on loan for the remainder of 2020, before making the switch permanent from next year.

Kay returns to the club where he made his professional debut in 2012, having graduated through Trinity’s academy.

He has since gone on to make over 150 appearances, including stints at Doncaster and Leigh, racking up an impressive 146 in the process.

“I’m over the moon to be joining Wakefield, the place where I got handed my Super League debut,” said Kay. “I think the club itself has developed in leaps and bounds since the last time I was there so I’m really looking forward to getting back and getting stuck in.”

Trinity head coach Chris Chester added: “I’m delighted we’ve got Liam at the club. You only have to look at his prolific record to realise he knows where the try line is and I think he’ll really push the likes of Tom Johnstone, Ben Jones-Bishop and Lee Kershaw in his position.

“He’s been at the club before, so he obviously knows what we’re about at Wakefield and I’m sure he’s looking forward to starting training with the boys next week.”
