Wakefield Trinity sign Hull FC man as they build for Super League

Wakefield Trinity

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed yet another signing as they bid to strengthen their squad for their anticipated return to Super League next year.

The club have seen huge developments under new owner Matt Ellis with recruitment being particularly impressive including the arrival of both Tom Johnstone and Mike McMeeken from Catalans Dragons on four-year deals.

They’ve now confirmed that they have signed Cam Scott from Hull FC on a two-year deal with an option for a third year as well as Daryl Powell’s side is building a squad that can compete in Super League.

Wakefield Trinity are yet to lose a game so far in the Championship and are incredibly likely to earn promotion via IMG grading meaning their stint outside of Super League will last just one year.

As such, they’ve recruited as if they are a Super League side just like Leigh Leopards did when they went all in and made their promotion push, tying down key players and building a Super League-worthy squad whilst in the second tier.

Wakefield Trinity shared: “Wakefield Trinity are proud to announce the signing of Cameron Scott from Hull FC!

“The 24-year old joins Trinity on a two-year deal with an option of a third.

“A former Bradford Bulls youngster, Scott made the move over to Hull FC at a young age and rose through their academy system making his Super League debut in 2018.”

The 24-year-old has played 11 times for Hull FC so far this season and has switched between centre and back-row offering some versatility to Wakefield Trinity for next season.

Speaking on the move to Trin, Scott said: “I’m really excited at the opportunity of coming to Wakefield. It’s a club that’s doing a lot of things right, both on and off the field and are heading in the right direction. I feel I reached the point in my career where I needed something new and when Wakefield came in the opportunity was too good to miss”

Trinity Head Coach, Daryl Powell said: “We are delighted to add Cam to our squad for next year. Young English outside backs of this quality are tough to find and Cam is a quality player already who we feel will thrive within our environment. We wish him all the best for the rest of the season and look forward to welcoming him to the Trinity family next season in 2025.”

Recruitment Manager, Ste Mills said: “We are made up to secure Cameron’s services for the 2025 season & beyond. I have been a fan of Cam since he was in the scholarship at Bradford all those years ago. He is a young English player who is driven to become the best player he can possibly be, and I am certain he will be a huge success at Wakefield Trinity. He fits perfectly into our recruitment model & I can’t wait to see him in 2025 in the Red, White & Blue.”
