Matty Ashurst extends Wakefield contract

Wakefield have announced that Matty Ashurst has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

Ashurst, 31, joined Trinity ahead of the 2015 season from Salford and has committed his future to the club until at least the end of the 2023 season.

He said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new deal to remain at Trinity.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my seven seasons here at the club and couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else now.

“For me it was a no-brainer to extend and to continue the journey. The club know me and I know them and having spoken with Michael (Carter, chairman), it was an easy decision.

“I’m really enjoying my rugby this season and now I want to kick on and continue to do my best for the team week in and week out.”

Head coach, Chris Chester, added: “To get Tash signed up for a further two years is extremely pleasing news.

“I can’t speak highly enough of him throughout my time here. He’s been a brilliant player for Wakefield Trinity and will continue to be for the next few years. He’s a real calming influence for us on that left-edge and has a really good understanding with the other guys that play around him.

“I’m delighted that he’s sticking around and look forward to continuing to work with him.”
