The Northstanders select Chris Annakin as their player for 2016.

The Northstanders have selected Chris Annakin as their player to sponsor for the coming season.

Our fans have always been a fantastic support network for Wakefield Trinity and this is an innovative way they have decided to raise funds for the club. The Northstanders raise the funds by selling “shares” and each participant is then entered into a draw to win fantastic prizes.

Ryan Williamson explains why they chose Chris “After speaking to fans on social media and gathering feedback it seemed they wanted to get behind a home grown talent and Chris’ name came out on top. Chris has quickly grown to become a favourite amongst supporters and it showed at the back end of last season. The lad plays with his heart on his sleeve and never leaves anything behind on the field”

Annakin was thrilled when he found out that he had been selected by the fans “I was really happy to find out that the fans had chosen to sponsor me for the new season, it means an awful lot. The fans have been a brilliant support throughout the year and we all can’t wait to get back out onto the pitch!”
