Annakin first through the door at Dewsbury

Annakin first through the door at Dewsbury

DEWSBURY RAMS have made their first new signing for 2020, with Chris Annakin signing from Wakefield on a two-year deal.

The Dewsbury-born forward is no stranger to the Rams, having featured on loan in each of the last three seasons, including making 12 appearances for the side last year to help them avoid Championship relegation.

Annakin, 28, has spent his whole professional career so far at Wakefield since debuting in 2011, but has struggled to consistently hold down a first-team place.

The former Shaw Cross Sharks junior has also had loan spells with Workington Town, Featherstone Rovers and London Broncos in his career.

Now the prop, who featured eight times in Super League in 2019 and has 70 top-flight appearances to his name, has made a permanent switch to the Tetley’s Stadium.

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 at Dewsbury and it’s great that he wants to be a part of it.

“I know he had other options but he has enjoyed it here each time he has been on loan and to commit to us for two years shows how much he likes it.”


SEASON ticket prices have been frozen at Dewsbury for the 2020 season.

Adults tickets will again start at £185, going up to £200 for a seat in the North Stand, while concessions start at £135.

The club introduced a new 16-24 category last season and will continue this next year, with prices starting at £100.

Season tickets for under-16s will again be free of charge.

However, matchday admission prices have been increased for next season by £1 for adults and concessions.

Adults will now have to pay £17 for standing or £20 for a seat, with concessions priced at £14 and £16 respectively and juniors at £2 and £4 respectively.
