WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats have signed four new players to boost the club’s academy side.

Brad Day, Cameron Leeming, Jack Anderson and Luke Metcalfe have all signed deals that will keep them at the club until November 2013.

Brad Day is both a centre and a back rower and has signed from local club Leeds Rhinos along with fellow centre Cameron Leeming.

Jack Anderson has joined the Wildcats from Hull FC and is most at home playing loose forward while back rower Luke Metcalfe has signed from local Championship side Featherstone Rovers.

The four boys, who are all either 15 or 16, are joined by another five players that have signed from Wildcats’ Scholarship scheme.

Corbyn Kilday, Jack Gledhill, Tom Middleton, Daniel Mirfin and Flannan Naismith have all signed to the under-18s squad.

Head of youth performance Tony Drury said: “I would like to welcome all the young men to the Wildcats.

“Each and every player has the skill, maturity and potential to develop into a regular first team player and I’m looking forward to seeing the boys in action for Wakefield.

“With our help and guidance I wish them all the best for the future.”
