Jake adds to the wealth of Super League experience that has been assembled at Kingston Park Stadium this winter.
The club’s fourth capture from Wigan Warriors, Shorrocks is a half with a strong kicking game, who poses a potent running threat with the ball in hand and has a pass with plenty of zip.
He has demonstrated his abilities in 37 games in the top-flight since he made his debut back in June 2016 against Widnes Vikings for the Warriors.
Going on to make a further 11 appearances as Shaun Wane’s side enjoyed a title-winning season, Shorrocks breakthrough was halted by a knee injury at the start of the 2017 season that prevented him from adding more than one Super League cap to his tally.
Spending most of 2018 on loan at Salford Red Devils, Shorrocks impressed as he bounced back from a season out from playing and went on to make a further 13 appearances for Wigan where he returned for the 2019 campaign.
With experience of the Betfred Championship from loan spells with Workington Town and Swinton Lions, Shorrocks is an exciting talent who arrives on Tyneside eager to progress his own career as he helps Thunder achieve their own ambitions.
