York City Knights Head Coach James Ford announced his 2020 squad numbers at a successful fans forum event at York St John University sports campus last night.

The event – which was attended by over 250 fans – saw Chairman Jon Flatman, General Manager Neil Gulliver and YCK Foundation Manager Adam Prentis update the room about the club’s progress throughout 2019 and discuss the off field targets for 2020 and beyond, as well as the imminent move into the brand new Community Stadium.

Ford and the first team squad joined the event after finishing their training session, and the room heard from the Head Coach about pre-season progress so far, as well as Perry Whiteley, new signings Danny Washbrook & Chris Clarkson, and Tim Spears – who was announced as Captain once again for 2020.

New signings Will Sharp has taken number 5, Ben Johnston 6, Washbrook, James Green & Clarkson 11, 15 & 16 respectively, and on-loan Elliot Wallis number 24.

The number 3 shirt has been left available for the time being, and once again the number 18 shirt is retired in memory of all the Knights fans sadly no longer with us.

Pre-season friendlies commence with a trip to Featherstone on Sunday 5th January, so its not long until we can enjoy our next rugby league fix!
