Wakefield talisman signs new deal

Wakefield Trinity’s Matty Ashurst will be staying at Trinity for a further two years after agreeing a new contract with the club.

Speaking on his contract extension, Ashurst said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new deal to remain at Trinity.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my seven seasons here at the club and couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else now.

“For me it was a no-brainer to extend and to continue the journey. The club know me and I know them and having spoken with Michael, it was an easy decision.

“I’m really enjoying my rugby this season and now I want to kick on and continue to do my best for the team week in and week out.”

Head coach, Chris Chester, added: “To get Tash signed up for a further two years is extremely pleasing news.

“I can’t speak highly enough of him throughout my time here. He’s been a brilliant player for Wakefield Trinity and will continue to be for the next few years.

“He’s a real calming influence for us on that left-edge and has a really good understanding with the other guys that play around him.

“I’m delighted that he’s sticking around and look forward to continuing to work with him.”
