Kear commits to Wakefield

Wakefield Head of Rugby John Kear has signed a new one-year deal.

Kear, 62, is in his second stint at the club having previously been head coach from five years until 2011.

He told the club’s official website: “I am really pleased, I have got great affection for the club as most people will know from my first stint here. I have enjoyed working with Michael, Chris and the coaching staff this season, so I am really looking forward to next year.

“It is great to see how much we have improved on last season but we still have plenty to do over the next six weeks.”

Kear returned to the club from Batley ahead of the 2017 campaign to work with Chris Chester.

Under Chester, Trinity have finished in the top eight for two successive seasons, despite running with the lowest budget in Super League.

Club chairman Michael Carter added: “I am delighted that John has agreed to commit for another season. 

“His passion for this Club and Rugby League in general is there for all to see, and he brings an experience to both myself and Chris that money cannot buy. 

“The Club is moving in the right direction, and John is a big part of that.”
