Wakefield Trinity is thrilled to announce the return of Jack Croft to the club until the culmination of the 2023 season. The 22-year-old centre, who emerged from our esteemed youth system, had departed Trinity at the conclusion of his contract in 2022. He subsequently embarked on an overseas stint in Australia, showcasing his skills with the Wynnum Manly Seagulls.
Croft made his Trinity debut in a remarkable fashion during the 2019 Challenge Cup Quarter Final against St Helens, where he scored a try merely ten minutes into the game. Throughout his tenure with the club, he accumulated an impressive total of 21 appearances.
Now donning the Red, White & Blue once again, Croft eagerly anticipates the forthcoming challenges.
“I’m genuinely delighted to be back at Wakefield and excited about the obstacles that lie ahead,” expressed Croft.
“It was invigorating to rejoin the lads during training this morning, and our undivided focus is on preparing for the clash against Catalans this weekend.
“Having worked under Mash (Mark Applegarth) for a substantial part of my career so far, I am eagerly looking forward to collaborating with him within the first-team environment.
“I am fully committed to the cause and genuinely excited about taking the field with the boys once again.”
Trinity Head Coach, Mark Applegarth, expressed his satisfaction with Croft’s return: “I am absolutely delighted that we have successfully brought Jack Croft back to the club. I have closely followed his progress since his scholarship days, so I am genuinely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him once more.
“He will provide valuable options for our centre positions, and now that he has fully recovered from his knee injury, I am excited to witness his continued development as he takes on the challenges of the Super League week in and week out.”
