Wakefield Trinity announce dual registration with fellow West Yorkshire club

Wakefield Trinity have agreed a dual registration partnership with League One Dewsbury Rams for the 2023 season.

That deal will allow Trinity players to get some game time down in League One and learn their way in the game under head coach Liam Finn.

Finn, who formerly played for Wakefield during two separate spells, is aiming to lift Dewsbury out of League One following their relegation from the Championship in 2022.

As well as Trinity players heading to League One for game time it will also allow Rams players to link up with Wakefield’s reserves as well.

Both clubs announced the news via their Twitter pages.

Finn said: β€œWe’ve been speaking to a couple of clubs about the possibility of dual registration and because we’re in League One we can dual reg with a Super League and Championship side simultaneously.

“We’re really happy to link up with Wakefield and create a link that keeps as many young players playing the game as possible. A major issue in the game at present for lads from 19 onwards.”

Finn concluded: “I know Mark Applegarth and Michael Carter from working with them and they’re honest up front people who at their respective level face some similar challenges to ourselves, I think this will prove to be useful for both clubs.”

Rams Chairman Mark Sawyer added: β€œI am delighted that we have been able to secure a dual registration partnership with Wakefield. We have worked together in the past and this latest agreement will give us the extra cover we may need as the League One season unfolds.

Our priority this season is to gain promotion back to the Championship and we need to have the building blocks in place to help Liam and the team achieve this.
