New Dewsbury Rams signing Kyle Trout says he is eager to find top form under a new structure, after returning to the club following a spell in 2017 with Sheffield Eagles.

Trout has joined the Rams for a second time after previously playing for the club in 2016, and the former Wakefield Trinity player will be out to impress from the start.

“I’m really pleased to be back with the Rams,” he said.

“Since leaving the club, I’ve had a spell with Sheffield and a taste of playing union, but after speaking to Neil I just felt that coming back to Dewsbury was the best option for me out of the opportunities I had.

“The boys were impressive during the back half of last season,” said Trout, referring to the Rams’ resurgence under Kelly last term.

“The coaching staff provide a loose structure to follow, but encourage attacking what’s in front at any given time.

“I think it’s something that the boys we have thrive on, as the last few months of the season showed.

“After speaking to Neil and seeing the club’s style, I think now it’s a better fit for me than before, and I think that my personal style will bring something different to complement an already strong squad.”

Having now linked up with his team-mates for pre-season training, Trout has outlined his objectives for the 12 months ahead.

“Personally, I just want to make sure I’m consistently playing to my potential, reaching where I want to be, and helping the club get to where it wants to be.

“I know that I need to be in form from round one, and more importantly, performing consistently all year.

“I think from a club perspective the ambition is fairly simple, and that’s to build on last year’s strong finish and finish as high as possible.

“If we can find the form that the squad showed last year then anything is attainable. We can beat anyone on any day, if we play to our capabilities.”
