Wakefield Trinity forward latest Super League man to join Championship club

Keighley Cougars secured promotion from League 1 to the Championship with ease in 2022, and have already laid down a real marker with some outstanding recruitment going into the 2023 Championship season.

They even signed a top Super League outside back in the shape of Ben Crooks from Hull KR and another Super League man has become the latest to follow him to Keighley.

The player in question is Wakefield Trinity forward Sadiq Adebiyi.

He joins fellow ex-Wakefield man Brad Walker who also recently made the move to the club from Belle Vue.

Adebiyi has signed a deal that keeps him at the club until 2024.

The signing excites Director of Rugby Andrew Henderson who said on the club’s website: “Sadiq is a first-class person and player.

“I had the pleasure of working with Sid previously at the London Broncos and supporting him in his early stages of development as a first team player.

“Since then, he has established himself as a Super League standard player with both London and Wakefield.

“At only 25 years of age, he is in his prime now and ready to really kick on these next few years and further progress as a player.

“He is equally at home in the middle or the edge, and both can and will add some genuine strike power to our forward line.

“Rhys and I really pleased to secure the signature of Sid as we know he will add value to the organisation both on and off the field.”

Sadiq added: “I decided to join the club because having previously worked with Hendo and Rhys, the prospect of working with them again is one that I’m looking forward too.

“Also having seen what they achieved last season and their goals for this season in the Championship, the ethos of the club is something that I’m very excited about.

“To have another season like the club had last year would be something special and if we can achieve something like that again, I would love to be a part of it.

“I would like to see Keighley achieve a place in Super League and I hope I can play a part in that with the rest of the boys.

“This new challenge is something that I am excited for.

“It come at a time in my career when I have had some injuries and to get going again and start an incredible season here at Keighley is something that I am excited for.

“After having conversations with the club, it felt the right for me and I’m excited to see what we can achieve together.”
