New faces as Wakefield exit admin


Wakefield have exited administration and are set to announce the signings of four new players.

Spirit of 1873 have finally completed their mooted takeover of the club for a nominal fee from administrators O’Hara and Company, who have this week sold off three of the club’s players, including star half-back Sam Obst.

A two-man board, comprising Glover and chief executive James Elston, will run the new club alongside new general manager Davide Longo, with John Kear staying on as head coach.

Glover said: “It’s been tough for the last few weeks but we’ve got there.

“The security of the club is now solid and everyone can concentrate on doing their job.”

Although Obst and Dale Ferguson‘s moves to Hull and Huddersfield have been confirmed, there remains a doubt over Daryl Millard‘s departure to Catalans.

The French club announced his signing via a press release on Wednesday, but nothing has been confirmed regarding his exit by O’Hara’s or the new ownership.

Huddersfield have already revealed that they have released youngsters Josh Griffin and Greg Johnson to take up contracts with the Wildcats, while Warrington are set to loan the club young half-back Craig Harvey.

Another man set to make the move to Belle Vue is Leeds prop Kyle Amor. The deals are expected to be confirmed shortly.
