Wakefield Trinity youngster scoops award after spells at Barrow Raiders and Featherstone Rovers

Tonight a Huddersfield Giants youngster in George Roby on loan at Swinton scooped the Betfred League 1 Young Player of the Year award beating potential Leeds signing Leon Ruan to the honour.

Now another on loan Super League starlet has picked up an award in the shape of young Wakefield forward Sam Eseh.

Eseh picked up the Betfred Championship Young Player of the Year award tonight at Headingely shortly after Roby picked up his award. Eseh has played for two clubs on loan in the Championship impressing initially at Barrow before joining Featherstone where he finished the season.

Wakefield fans are hoping to see him in the white, red and blue next year hoping that new boss and youth specialist Mark Applegarth can form him into Wakefield next household name.

He beat Oli Leyland of London Broncos and AJ Towse of York to the honour.

Previously tonight, Eseh’s former club Barrow picked up awards for Championship Club of the Year whilst coach Paul Crarey grabbed Championship Coach of the Year. The Raiders were also nominated for Foundation of the Year but lost out to Sheffield Eagles.

Meanwhile, there was also a double win for Keighley in League 1.

They won the League 1 Club of the Year and Coach of the Year with Rhys Lovegrove picking up the honour after an outstanding season.
