Wakefield Trinity’s Tom Johnstone’s future confirmed

Catalans Dragons have announced the signing of Tom Johnstone from the 2023 season.

The Wakefield Trinity winger has signed a two-year deal and will join last year’s Grand Finalists and League Leaders from Wakefield after a superb stint with the West Yorkshire club.

Tom Johnstone said to the Dragons website: “Firstly I would to thank Steve McNamara for the opportunity to come here. Once I’d spoken to him and heard what the club are aspiring to achieve, I knew it was perfect fit for me.”

“My main goal is to win a Grand Final and it would be incredible to do that and create history here.”

“I am really excited and grateful for the opportunity to play for such a great club.”

“It’s easy to see the passion the fans have and I can’t wait to play for them next year.”

Catalans Dragons head coach Steve McNamara said: “We are very happy to add Tom to our squad for next season. He has blistering speed, power and try scoring ability whilst having a desire to continue to develop all parts of his game. He will bring depth and competition to our wing spots in 2023.”

Meanwhile, Johnstone spoke fondly of his time at Wakefield when bidding farewell on Trinity TV.

Having never won a major trophy in his career, this is Johnstone’s big chance with a club on the up who have won two of the three big trophies in the last four years including a famous Challenge Cup Final win over Warrington in 2018.

His current commitment is to Wakefield and steering them away from relegation.
