Wakefield Trinity announce that head coach, Chris Chester, has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.

Chris Chester joined the club back in March 2016 and has since guided Trinity to a fifth place Betfred Super League finish in 2018.

On the deal, Chester said:

“I am very happy; to get my deal sorted so quickly is great news for me and my family.

“We are very settled here, I am a Wakefield Trinity fan and a Wakefield lad and I am delighted to have agreed another three years.”

Chief Executive, Michael Carter added,

“It is fantastic news for everyone associated with the Club, we have been having a chat for six months about tying Chris down for a further length of time.

“We both sat down yesterday and got the deal sorted; it is absolutely fantastic Chris is on board for another three years at least.”
