Ryan Hampshire will leave Wakefield at the end of November after failing to agree a new deal with the club.

The utility back, 24, scored two tries in a 19-10 final-round win over London which kept Trinity in Super League.

Chris Annakin, Anthony England, Keegan Hirst, Luke Hooley, Tyler Randell and Lewis Wray will also leave when their contracts expire.

Long-serving back-row forward Danny Kirmond has agreed a new deal to become a player-coach from next season.

The 33-year-old, who has made more than 150 appearances for Wakefield, will also serve as player performance manager and reserve team coach.

"Kirmo is a true legend of this club. I'm sure he'll be a great success combining both roles," said chief executive Michael Carter.

"It hasn't been possible to agree a new deal with Ryan Hampshire, despite every effort being made. I wish him well in the future."
