Nick Fozzard: New role at Wakefield for former St Helens forward
Wakefield have appointed former St Helens forward Nick Fozzard as their new business development manager.
Fozzard, who enjoyed a successful playing career with Leeds, Huddersfield, Saints, Warrington and Hull KR, spent 12 months as commercial manager at Super League neighbours Castleford until resigning earlier this year.
"I'm from Wakefield so to work for my home-town club is a big thing for me and I want to make a real success of the opportunity," he said.
"The club has made some real strides off the pitch in the last couple of years and that's a really solid foundation for us to build on."
Meanwhile, full-back Richard Mathers is set to return for the Wildcats in Friday's Challenge Cup fifth-round tie at Hull.
Mathers has been out for a month with an ankle injury and a ruptured testicle but has been named in coach Richard Agar's 19-man squad.
