Warrington have appointed Peter Riding as the club’s new head of youth.

Riding has spent the past four years at Castleford and has previously worked at Wakefield and Huddersfield.

Wolves chief executive, Karl Fitzpatrick, said: “This is a real coup for the club. Peter has a proven track record of spotting and producing quality Super League players.

“The youth programme is critical for the future success of the club and with Peter’s expertise and leadership we are confident he can help us produce more home-grown talent.”
