Wakefield Trinity give highly rated winger Tom Johnstone new deal

Wakefield have handed highly rated winger Tom Johnstone a new contract that will keep him at the club until the end of 2022.

The 22-year-old academy product, who is in England coach Wayne Bennett's elite training squad, was already contracted to the end of 2020 but was delighted to sign a two-year extension.

"I've loved my time here," he said. "As soon as I got the option to stay for a few more years by extending my contract, I jumped at it.

"I can't wait to see what happens over the next four and a half years."

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "It's fantastic news, especially with all the speculation surrounding our top players. It's a massive re-signing for the club.

"If you look at the squad now, we've pretty much got everyone we want tied down to long-term deals."

Meanwhile, Chester has called on one last big effort from his team as they look to secure their place in the Super 8s.

With just one win from their last five Super League matches, Trinity remain in trouble at the wrong end of the table but victory over Hull at the Mobile Rocket Stadium on Sunday would guarantee them a top-eight finish.

Defeat would mean they would have to beat in-form Huddersfield in the last round of the regular season at the John Smith's Stadium next Friday to avoid a place in the dreaded Qualifiers.

"We know the importance of the game," said Chester, whose side grabbed a crucial point in their last match at Leeds. "We've prepared pretty well this week. We know it's back in our hands."
