Wakefield Wildcats are set to launch a new scouting network under the guidance of Youth Development Manager Ryan Hudson as the club looks to find the stars of the future.

Youth Development Manager Ryan Hudson is looking to establishing a scouting network in Wakefield and further afield.

Hudson has recently been installed in the position and does not officially start until December but the former hooker is already preparing for his new role in looking for scouts. The club are looking for highly motivated individuals who have an eye for talent in not just the Wakefield district but those who live further afield too.

Sharlston born Danny Kirmond is now the captain of the Wildcats and he was coached by Hudson whilst playing for Stanley Rangers and new scouts will be expected to help build relationships with local amateur clubs, including working with all the different age groups in discussing and pointing out the stars of tomorrow.

John Holroyd has been installed as the head scout with him also being the head grounds person at local side Stanley Rangers. Members of the new talent identification team will work under Holroyd and will be expected to watch junior rugby throughout the week, especially weekends and be dedicated to identifying the most talented youngsters. Candidates must have superb knowledge and experience in rugby league while being enthusiastic in everything they do.

A full UK driving license is a necessity and the ability to attend weekend fixtures is crucial in helping forge partnerships with clubs as Trinity aim to work in tandem with the local community. To be in contention of being part of Trinity’s new scouting network you must also have great communication and listening skills.

If you think you can make a difference to the Wildcats and joining the club in moving forward in being a youth scout then send your CV to ryanhudson@wakefieldwildcats.co.uk.

The deadline is Friday 19th October and all applicants must send their details to Hudson who will be in contact in due course.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
