posted on 27 April 2014

Wildcats fans have voted Ian Brooke and Mick Exley into the Wakefield Trinity Hall of Fame.

Ian Brooke will be inducted into the Wakefield Trinity Hall of Fame.

The duo were chosen after votes were collated in the Wildcats retail stores, via email and social media to join the initial six inaugural members to be inducted at a dinner on Saturday 10th May.

Ian Brooke went from Wakefield schoolboys to the Great Britain test arena. A centre three-quarter, he played 183 games (67 tries) in two spells at Trinity (1962-64 and 1967-70) which included two Championship winner’s medals. He also coached Trinity in the 1970’s and was still on the coaching staff in the 1990’s.

Meanwhile, Exley provided a formidable forward partnership with Bill Horton in the 1920’s and 1930’s and lies third on the all-time appearance list with 449. He was nineteen years a Trinity player (1928-47) which included a 1946 Challenge Cup winners medal, Yorkshire and England caps as well as a Great Britain Lions tour place in 1936.
