Wakefield have confirmed the signing of Leigh half-back Ben Reynolds on a two-year deal.

Reynolds joins Trinity on a deal until at least the end of the 2020 season from Championship side Leigh.

The 24-year-old made his professional debut for Castleford Tigers back in 2013, before joining Leigh in 2015. He made 65 appearances for the Centurions.

On joining Wakefield, Reynolds 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 into the team and then trying to help the team onto even bigger things in the future.”

Trinity 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.”
