Elston had been involved with the Wildcats for over 12 years, starting as a community development manager before working his way to roles in senior management and until recently was CEO.
Elston brought former Chairman Andrew Glover to the club who rescued the Wildcats from liquidation.
They then successfully applied for a Super League license in 2011. He continued to strengthen the board, attracting current chairman Michael Carter and director Chris Brereton. He has also been responsible for establishing the Wildcats Sport & Education Academy.
This provides the opportunity for Trinity’s Academy players to earn a qualification alongside full-time training for the first ever time from October. This has enabled the Wildcats to retain and attract some of the best young talent around including six England youth Internationals.

He remains an important player at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, though, and is pleased to have agreed the deal.
"It's been a bit of an up and down season for me personally and I'm looking forward to starting afresh next year and stay the whole season injury free," he said.
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats forward Justin Poore will face the Rugby Football League's disciplinary panel in Leeds tomorrow after being charged with punching during his side's 44-24 Super League defeat at Wigan.
The Australian front rower was sent off after 10 minutes by referee Robert Hicks for hitting Wigan second rower Liam Farrell and was today charged with a grade B offence by the RFL's match-review panel.
The Super League match between Wakefield and Leeds has been postponed for a second time due to the adverse weather conditions in West Yorkshire over the last 48 hours.
The match had initially been due to take place on Friday night but heavy snow forced it to be put back to this afternoon, but it was confirmed this morning that conditions around the Rapid Solicitors Stadium were still unsafe for spectators.
No date for the re-arranged game has been set yet.
