Warrington Wolves have announced that former player Tyrone McCarthy has returned to the club as assistant academy and lead scholarship coach.
McCarthy was born and bred in Warrington and made 43 appearances for the Wire between 2009-2013. He was part of the team that won three Challenge Cups in 2009, 2010 and 2012 and the League Leaders’ Shield in 2011.
The former forward retired from playing last season and will now work with Academy Head Coach Paul Anderson and Head of Youth Pete Riding to develop our Academy talents.
Speaking on the news, McCarthy said: “I’m really excited about what the Club want to achieve.
“We’ve got a really talented bunch of Academy lads and we want to develop them in the right way and create good people. The ultimate aim is for them to reach the top and play for the first team.
“For me I want to imprint on them what it means to represent the town. They may be coming from across the country but they’re playing for this club so if they can have a bit of what the town means and become good hard-working people I’ll be happy with that.
