Trinity skipper signs one-year extension
Wakefield Trinity captain Danny Kirmond has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal to keep him at the club for next season.
Kirmond, who has made 150 appearances for Wakefield since joining from Huddersfield Giants in 2012, says it was an "easy decision" to commit for another 12 months.
"I have been here for a long time so it was more a case of whatever was on the table, I would be more than happy," he said.
"It was great to get it all sorted out pretty quick. I am not ready to retire yet and I made it clear that I would like to stay here at Wakefield longer."
Trinity chairman Michael Carter paid tribute to the 32-year-old, who is the club's longest-serving player, and is delighted with his ongoing commitment to the cause.
He said: "Every Wakefield fan should be eternally grateful to Danny for the service he has given the club.
"He often played busted but put his body on the line. He could have left in 2013 but stayed loyal to the club, and me, and that loyalty works both ways.
"His performances culminated in selection for the Dream Team, but it was his on-and-off-field performances between 2013 and 2015, culminating in the MPG, that every fan should be grateful for."
