Wakefield Trinity announce departure of playmaker as clubs circle

Wakefield Trinity’s Ryan Hampshire has left the club, putting rivals in Super League on red alert.

Hampshire joined Trinity from Leigh Centurions at the start of the 2018 season and featured 85 times for the club, scoring 28 tries and kicking 129 conversions.

The utility back enjoyed his best season for the club in 2019, scoring 14 tries throughout the campaign and helping Trinity to a crucial win in the final game against London with two tries which kept Wakefield in the Super League following a difficult year.

Last season, Hampshire made 13 appearances, scoring five tries.

Trinity CEO Michael Carter said: “I’d like to thank Ryan for all his contributions to the club over the past four seasons and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

It’s a new era down at the Mobile Rocket Stadium as Willie Poching aims to rejuvenate his squad following a barren few years in the top flight.

It’s also thought that former club Leigh could be interested following their current Super League signing spree.
