ACADEMY FIXTURE SWITCHED TO STOOP

posted on 14 February 2013

Stuart Dickens takes his Wildcats under 19s squad to London on Sunday with a rearranged venue and kick-off time with the two Academy sides doing battle at the Twickenham Stoop following the first team encounter (kick-off: 5.15pm).

Stuart Dickens will be looking for his first victory in charge of the 19s.

The game was originally due to take place at Aldershot before the first team game but has been moved because of the unavailability of the Aldershot Military Stadium.

The Wakefield youngsters were narrowly beaten by Hull KR last Sunday and will be looking for their first victory of 2013 in the capital city. The Robins ran out 18-16 victors at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium after the opening day defeat at Bradford Bulls.

The off season was one of adaptation in the Trinity ranks after the under 20s and 18s evolved into the singular under 19s competition. Ryan Hudson was appointed the new Head of Youth Development while Dickens took the reins on the coaching side of the academy set-up.

There will be no extra charge for supporters wishing to stay and watch skipper Corbyn Kilday and his team take on the Broncos academy.

An itinerary of the day at the Stoop is below with more details to follow:

Gates open 1pm
Kids zone open 1pm
First team kick-off 3pm
Post match band from 4:45pm
U19s kick-off 5:15pm
