Youngster Kershaw Signs Professional Contract

We are delighted to announce that 17-year-old winger Lee Kershaw has signed his first professional contract with Wakefield Trinity.

Kershaw, who is a product of the club’s academy has agreed terms to a two-year professional deal, after his impressive performances for the youth teams.

The Bradford-born winger has been an outstanding member of the club’s under-19s team this season and even caught the eye of first team Head Coach Chris Chester.

Chester named Kershaw in his squad for the pre-season match against Dewsbury Rams in which the youngster had an exceptional game.

Lee Kershaw said, “I am thrilled to have signed my first professional contract, I never expected this to happen this season so it was quite a shock when I spoke to Chris (Chester).

“At the moment I am completing my studies at Wakefield College whilst playing for the u19s and I am looking forward to start training with the first team.”

Head Coach, Chris Chester spoke of the deal saying, “Lee is an outstanding prospect and an exceptional young local talent. I was very impressed with his performances with the u19s and when he featured in our friendly against Dewsbury at the start of pre season. I look forward to working with him in the future and watch how he progresses.”
