Wakefield to ignite transfer market with ‘special players’ heading…

The thrilling news doesn’t stop there, as hiring manager Steve Mills has alluded to potential “special” additions. Wakefield Trinity is dominating the Championship and are very certain to earn a Super League spot for 2025.

Trinity’s Super League career came to an end in 2023, but the team accepted their demotion and appears to be coming back more stronger.

They have a new owner, Matt Ellis, who has brought ambition, optimism, and money—money that has allowed for extravagant expenditure on players and foundations like their stadium—to the enterprise.

Since Wakefield Trinity has drawn large crowds for the Championship level and frequently surpassed the numbers they did in Super League, they are a completely different proposition under IMG. They have started their Championship campaign with seven wins from seven and will attempt to book a spot at Wembley with this weekend’s 1895 Cup Semi-Finals. Although they have demonstrated their dominance in the second tier, Wakefield needs to begin recruiting for Super League, just as Leigh did under Derek Beaumont. It appears that this is the plan, as Trin’s recruitment manager Ste Mills has given fans an exciting update.

Wakefield Following the May 1st deadline, Trinity made no secret of signing England international Mike McMeeken on a four-year contract for 2025. They also expect to re-sign former Trinity player and fellow England international Tom Johnstone.

Rumors about Johnstone returning to Belle Vue have been around for a while, and he may be one of the “special players” that Mills, the recruitment manager, is referring to.

Speaking via the Wakefield Trinity YouTube page, Mills said: “I feel like we couldn’t have probably had a better start in the last two days, three days.

“We’re on a really exciting journey. There’s going to be some special players coming in here, ones that the fans will really go for. Matt Ellis is not hidden away from the fact that we’re trying to build a top-four club here, and everything he’s doing off-field for IMG.

My job is to get a real special team on the field for Daryl and his coaching staff to work with. I feel like the first couple of days of this window has been successful for us and it’ll be an exciting couple of months for the Wakefield Trinity fans once they start to get over the lines. ”

Mills continued by emphasizing that Wakefield Trinity is building this as a long-term project, which is why they signed Mike McMeeken to a four-year contract and are committed to the goal of finishing in the top four.

“I believe that assembling a team that would stick together for a number of years was a major goal of ours. Mike is clearly coming on a four-year contract. Each coaching staff member has a four-year contract.

Making ensuring that everything we do is based on a long-term plan is important to us. It is a long-term plan to ensure that we meet the necessary benchmarks; it is not a project that will last two or three years.

Though he acknowledged that the current 2024 season was a little unusual for the team because the Championship season began a little later, he also mentioned upcoming player talks that should thrill Trin supporters.

This year has been a little bit unusual for us; with the late start, we have really fallen behind the eight ball. When we initially joined the team, we had a few players under contract.

That said, we didn’t want to rush the process and sign players who wouldn’t fit with Wakefield’s long-term strategy.

“There are a lot of players moving forward, and our current objective is to bolster the team with a few more players who can help us qualify for the Super League.”
