Wakefield Trinity Chairman shares exciting step in the re-development of Belle Vue

A new era at Wakefield Trinity starts today.

After the departure of Willie Poching and his assistant Francis Cummins at the end of the 2022 season, new coach Mark Applegarth and his assistant former York coach James Ford begins his pre-season today with his Wakefield Trinity squad equipped with new signing Morgan Smith.

Adding to the excitement at Belle Vue, the club is being tipped to announce the signing of former Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans star Kevin Proctor on “a very lucrative deal” in the coming days.

If you thought the excitement ended there you’d be wrong because of course Trinity are using the money given to them by Wakefield Council to redevelop their famous stadium.

The club is expecting the majority of this work to be done by the summer to celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary which is embodied by their new shirt.

The redevelopment of the stadium is going well and Chairman John Minards have shared an exciting development on the work.

The Chairman shared two pictures onto Twitter which demonstrate the putting up of the frames which will form the skeleton of the new look stands being built at Belle Vue.

He noted that he was almost more excited for this than he was the players being back for pre-season as he said: “Players are back in today⁩. But I’m almost more excited to see this activity. Frames going up.”

Excited by the stadium, fans are hoping this excitement is enhanced by a few new signings with the club still having three quota spots available at present.
