Cam Scott says a 'change was needed' after confirmation of his exit from Hull FC at the end of the season. The 24-year-old will join Wakefield Trinity for 2025 and beyond, as first reported by Hull Live back in March.

Scott has signed a two-year deal with the West Yorkshire club, who hold the option of a third year. His move to Trinity will end a seven-year stay at Hull, with Scott joining the Black and Whites ahead of the 2017 season.

The centre, who can also double up as a back rower and winger, has gone on to make 73 appearances for the club to date, scoring 15 tries.

Paying tribute to his time at the club, Scott said: "Firstly I would like to thank all the coaches and players that helped turn a childhood dream into reality. It’s a dream that I’m now lucky enough to call a professional.

"There comes a point where change is needed and I feel that this is where I currently am. I’m thoroughly enjoyed my time at Hull FC and the place means a lot to me.

"I’m looking forward to finishing this season in the best way possible and with my best foot forward. I’m also looking forward to a new challenge with Wakefield, who are doing a lot of things right both on and off the field. The prospect is exciting."

Scott is Wakefield's third confirmed signing for 2025, with Tom Johnstone and Mike McMeeken also joining the club.
