Kirmond signs new deal at Wakefield

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have announced that club captain Danny Kirmond has signed a contract extension with the club.

TotalRL revealed yesterday that a key star was going to sign a new deal with the Wildcats, with the club confirming that it was Kirmond who had signed a new deal until the end of 2018.

“I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension for the next two years at the club,” said Kirmond, who was out of contract at the end of the season.

“Having been here for six years now, the club, the fans and the rest of the boys mean a lot to me and having seen some low times during my time here I genuinely feel the club is in the best position it’s been in during my stay.

“It’s been great since Chris (Chester) came in and hopefully we can continue to work hard together to move forward. I look forward to the rest of this season and hopefully finishing my career off as a Wildcat.”

Chris Chester added, “I am delighted we have signed up our Captain for another two years, his performances have been outstanding in recent weeks and he will play a vital role over the next two years.”

Chairman, Michael Carter is delighted with the signing saying, “It is great news that Danny has signed for another two years, Danny loves this club and he was extremely loyal in 2013 when we went through all of our troubles, he could have moved elsewhere within the Super League and he didn’t so I am really pleased for Danny and the club, it is another great step towards a stable squad for next year.”
