Wakefield Trinity boss has big praise for young man signed to new deal

Wakefield Trinity have signed exciting youngster Oli Pratt to a new three year deal.

The young 18-year-old is set to star against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley on Boxing Day starting at centre despite the fact he can play fullback and wing as well.

Mark Applegarth is expecting big things of the talented young man as he spoke to the club’s website: “I’m really delighted about this deal.

“Oli Pratt is one of the most talented kids we have had in the academy in my time at Wakefield. He’s naturally a great runner of the ball with great footwork and pace. The key for Olly now is to continue working hard and to remain fully focused on developing his game.

“We have been working hard with him on his passing game which is improving every week and with him now training with the first team, it will help him kick on.

“I’m delighted he’s signed a new three-year deal and I’m excited to be working with him.”

Trinity CEO, Michael Carter, added: “I’m delighted that Oliver has committed his future to Wakefield Trinity,”

“He’s one of our bright young stars coming through from our academy and hopefully we’ll see him get plenty of game time this coming year.

“I would like to thank every single squadbuilder member who have made this deal possible. I would also like to thank Oliver’s family and his agent, Iestyn Harris, who have made this a simple and easy process to get this over the line.”
