YOUNG Wakefield Trinity Wildcats forward Chris Annakin has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The 20-year-old loose forward’s new contract will keep him at Wakefield until the end of 2013.

The former Shaw Cross Sharks player joined the Wildcats scholarship scheme and progressed through the academy, scooping the man of the match honours in the under-18s Grand Final.

Annakin, who has represented Yorkshire and has been training with the Wildcats first team for most of this season said: “I’m really pleased that I have signed a further two years here at Wakefield.

“After spending so much time in the academy I just couldn’t see myself at any other club.

“I’m really looking forward to working hard and hopefully securing myself as a first team player.”
