Kittrick switches to Kingston Park

Newcastle_Falcons_logo.svgFormer Doncaster half back Josh Kittrick is the latest exciting talent to pledge himself to the Thunder cause in 2016, after completing a move to Kingston Park for the upcoming season.

A product of the Wakefield academy, Kittrick began playing the game aged thirteen and spent three years with the Wildcats from the age of 16.

Looking to pursue opportunities within the game, Kittrick made the move to the Keepmoat Stadium in 2015 to play for Paul Cooke’s side and featured in games against Leigh Centurions, Batley Bulldogs, London Broncos and Workington Town.

He also spent time in League One on loan at London Skolars and Oxford playing a total of six games.

A player with a strong kicking game and a structured approach on the field, Kittrick is a good communicator and on pitch organiser and will be looking to continue his development as part of Mick Mantelli’s side.

Speaking on his move, Kittrick said: “I want to push on this year and try and do something in league and Thunder were very keen for me to come and join.”

“It’s a positive place which has really good facilities and an ambition to achieve things in the game and I wanted to be part of that.”

“I know a few lads who are coming up here and the fact the Thunder wanted me made it very appealing.”
