Back-rower Kyle Trout has committed his future to the Wakefield Wildcats by signing on until 2015
Despite being just 20 years of age, Trout has already been with the Wildcats for four years, having come through the Wakefield Academy.
After taking part in all five of the Wildcats’ pre-season clashes, the youngster has impressed head coach Richard Agar sufficiently to be awarded a long-term deal.
“I didn’t know a lot about him when I first arrived but he has shown a real appetite to learn and improve,” said Agar.
“He’s got a good frame, strong physical attributes as well as good speed, footwork and a nice touch with the ball in hand.
“He’s understanding his role better all the time and he can see the opportunities that are in front of him if he continues to work hard.
“The fact that he is a local youngster makes it all the more pleasing to see him commit his future to the club.”
Trout is understandably pleased to be have secured his future at Belle Vue.
“I’m really happy to have had the offer to stay and for it to come so early on in the year is great,” he commented.
“I’ve watched Wakefield ever since I’ve started playing rugby so it’s a big thing for me and my family to play for Wakefield and it’ll be a very proud moment when I get the chance to make my Super League debut.”
