Wakefield Trinity have undergone plenty of changes in the past few weeks with relegation from Super League being followed by a club takeover, a new head coach in Daryl Powell and now Trinity have launched their home shirt for the 2024 campaign.
Following the club’s relegation from Super League it’s been a whole host of change with the catalyst for all that being local businessman Matt Ellis taking ownership of the club and following that there’s been a wave of positivity around the club.
The club have now launched their 2024 home shirt through a post on the club’s social media account labelling the launch as ‘a new dawn’.
An attached video shows some of the team’s stars including Mason Lino modelling the jersey at their developed Belle Vue stadium with the shirt predominantly white and featuring a blue chevron on the chest with a smaller red chevron surrounding the neck and collar area.
A red and blue hoop also features on the sleeve with the club going back to their traditional colours and Ellis’ company DIY Kitchens acting as the main shirt sponsor.
With the club now moving into a new era under Ellis’ ownership it could well prove to be an instant classic, particularly if the club continue their impressive strides forward.
During last week’s preliminary IMG gradings Trinity ranked 11th highlighting that their off-field work is certainly good enough for a berth in Super League and they have since continued to add to their playing squad.

Daryl Powell has been appointed as head coach and has been afforded his own staff with his former captain during his time at Castleford Tigers, Michael Shenton, now working as his assistant. The club have also recruited a number of other staff to fit around Powell’s new regime.
Earlier this week they added to their 2024 playing squad with the signing of Cronulla Sharks youngster Toby Boothroyd with the 20-year-old second-rower joining the club, highlighting a plan to recruit from far and beyond and not just within the Championship pool of players.
Reaction to the team’s new kit so far has been incredible too with Trinity fans clearly buzzing to wear the strip for the new season.
One fan reacted: “Wow… that kit is something else!”
Another noted the fact that the club had drawn in plenty of sponsors and therefore investment, something that will be crucial in this IMG era of rugby league: “Love it! Great to see so many sponsors onboard.”
