Lyne reunited with Agar
1st October 2012
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats coach Richard Agar has returned to his old club to make Hull FC winger Reece Lyne his first signing for 2013.
The 19-year-old played seven times in Agar’s final season at the KC Stadium in 2011 but failed to make a single appearance in Stobart Super League this season under his successor Peter Gentle.
The 6ft 3in Lyne, who made a try-scoring debut for Hull at the age of 17, has signed a three-year contract with the Wildcats.
Agar said: “He’s a player with outstanding potential and possesses raw speed.
“He’s a player for the future and I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to sign him. I’m confident that, given the chance to develop, he will become a top Super League player.”
Lyne said: “Rich gave me my first opportunity as a young kid and I’m looking forward to working with him again.”
