Wakefield coach Chris Chester extends contract

Wakefield head coach Chris Chester has been handed a two-year contract extension.

Chester, 38, arrived at Belle Vue in March 2016 having left Hull KR, and ended up guiding Trinity in to the top eight and the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

He said: “I am delighted to have signed the deal and commit myself to a further two years at the club especially as it is my home town club. 

“This deal will provide us with a bit more stability; we can now concentrate on building the club even further.”

The former Halifax, Wigan, Hull and Hull KR back-rower has been joined by the experienced John Kear behind the scenes at Trinity this season.

Chairman Michael Carter said, “It is great news for Wakefield Trinity that Chris (Chester) has committed to further years at this club. Been a local lad, Chris understands the mentality and practicalities of how this club operates. He is aware of the issues that we currently face and is more than happy to tackle those alongside us.

“He’s had an outstanding first year at this club and I look forward to him leading us from the front for the next two and half years.”

Wakefield travel to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons on Saturday with a 50/50 record in Super League this season, having registered three wins.
