Dewsbury Rams have confirmed the signing of Wakefield Trinity forward Chris Annakin on a two year deal from 2020.
After three straight years out on loan at the Championship club, Annakin now makes a permanent switch to Dewsbury.
He came through the ranks at Wakefield in 2011, but has only made 77 appearances during that time, scoring one try.
On Annakin signing for the Rams, head coach Lee Greenwood said: “Chris is a huge signing for us and I’m really pleased he has chosen to join the club permanently. I think he has seen what I’m trying to do here at Dewsbury and it’s great that he wants to be a part of it.
“I know he had other options but has enjoyed it here each time he has been on loan and to commit to us for 2 years shows how much he likes it.”
