Warrington Wolves have released a statement on Head of Youth Pete Riding departing the club to take up a new role at fellow Super League club Hull FC.

Riding has spent the last four years at the Wire and during his tenure has influenced and developed a number of outstanding young players in their Scholarship and Academy system who have gone on to play first grade including Josh Thewlis, Connor Wrench and Ellis Longstaff.

Last year he successfully submitted the Wolves’ Academy accreditation bid which resulted in the Club being granted a RFL Elite Academy License until at least 2027.

Warrington Wolves CEO Karl Fitzpatrick said: “We’d like to thank Pete for his fantastic contribution over the last four years.

“He leaves our youth system in a better place than when he joined. This is evident with the number of quality young players that have recently debuted and the ongoing recruitment of many other exciting prospects.

“We will now conduct a thorough process to find the right person to lead our youth department that already consists of high-quality, full-time coaches led by Richard Marshall and Tyrone McCarthy.”
