Metcalfe also represents Hopwood Hall College, where he has worked with Hornets’ head coach Matt Calland.
Calland is delighted to have the 16-year-old on board.

“He’s only just started at college, but his effort and application have impressed me that much that I have invited him to train with the first team.
Calland concluded: “He is a credit to his local club - Rochdale Mayfield.”
Metcalfe added: “I’ve been working really hard on my game so to be able to train with a club like Rochdale Hornets, at 16-years-old, is a real honour and an amazing achievement.”
