Last joins Wakefield to assist Chester

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed the appointment of Andy Last as Assistant Coach at the Club for the 2021 season.

Last joins the Club from Hull FC after spending 23 years at the KCOM Stadium as a player, coach and Head Coach.

Speaking to Trinity TV, Last said: “I obviously had 23 years at Hull FC and that chapter ended in a good fashion, with no bridges burnt, so to speak.

“I spoke to Chris on the phone and he stressed that he wanted to get me on board which is brilliant for me. Chris is someone I respect and I love the project and the way he’s looking to do things next year.

“It’s the right time for me to spread my wings and gain some different experiences, and I don’t think there’s anywhere better for me to do that than at Wakefield Trinity. I’m really excited about getting started.”

Head Coach, Chris Chester, added: “I’m delighted that Andy Last will be joining the club.

“Andy is a great coach who will be a brilliant addition to the club, and a great character too. I have known Andy a lot of years, spent time with him at Hull FC and we’ve always kept in touch since.

“Andy is a very loyal person and the type of person that fits in perfectly with what we want at Wakefield Trinity. He’s looking forward to a fresh challenge, and after 23 years at Hull FC, he can’t wait to get started in a new environment here at Wakefield.”
