Full-back Max Jowitt has committed his future to Wakefield after signing a new two-year deal, keeping him at Belle Vue until at least the end of 2025.

The 26-year-old has scored 32 tries in 103 appearances for Wakefield since making his first team debut at the age of 17 back in 2014.

Trinity coach Mark Applegarth said: “I’m delighted to secure a player of Max Jowitt’s quality for the next two years. I know that there was a lot of interest in him.

“At 26, Max’s best years are in front of him and, in my opinion, a fit and firing Max Jowitt is one of the finest attacking full-back’s in the competition. He has a great pass-selection as well as the pace to go with it.

“To have him tied up until the end of 2025 is fantastic news for the club.”

Max Jowitt delighted to extend his time with Wakefield

Trinity announced Jowitt’s contract extension via social media, having tweeted ‘Jowitt signs’ in the first letter of their previous 11 tweets!

Jowitt has been sidelined since February after suffering a freak injury in training ahead of their Round Two clash with Wigan.

He underwent surgery on an ankle injury he sustained whilst in captain’s run, but is nearing his return to full fitness.

On his new deal, Jowitt said: “I’m really happy to be extending my stay at the club. When it came down to it, it was a pretty easy decision.

“Having some chats back and forth with Mash (Mark Applegarth), Michael (Carter) and my agent, we came to an agreement which works for all parties, so I’m really happy.

“Whilst I’m obviously excited for the next two years, my main focus is on getting back to full fitness over these next few weeks and doing my best for the team, in what is an important period.”
