Wakefield confirm Ben Reynolds signing on two-year deal

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed the signing of Leigh half-back Ben Reynolds on a two-year contract – a deal first revealed in League Express last month.

The 24-year-old, who returns to his native West Yorkshire having earlier spent time with Castleford Tigers, joins from the Championship club after the Centurions’ failure to make the Qualifiers this summer.

Reynolds, who will link up with the rest of the Trinity squad in pre-season, said: “I am over the moon to be able to sign for a big club that is so close to home and also doing very well right now. It is a massive challenge ahead for me, firstly trying to work my way in to the team and then trying to help the team onto even bigger things in the future.”

Head coach Chris Chester commented: “It is great to get this deal over the line. Ben is a fantastic young player who will bring a lot of energy to the squad alongside adding some depth and a bit of healthy competition to the halves.”
