WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats have confirmed that former first team coach Paul Broadbent has left the club.

Head coach Richard Agar told the Wakefield Express: “We offered [Broadbent] a role and for reasons that will stay between him and me, he turned it down.

“Paul has decided to seek other challenges and we wish him all the best. No-one will dispute how hard he has worked and the commitment he has shown to the club.”

Broadbent was offered the role of assistant coach for both the first and reserve teams last month but took time out to consider his decision.

The news comes shortly after Glenn Morrison was appointed player-coach at Trinity.

The 35 year-old signed a one-year deal as an assistant coach to Agar and will also take charge of the Wildcats U20s academy team.
