Published: 7 April, 2021 - 12:18 pm

James Ford has named his 21-Man-Squad for Friday’s Betfred Challenge Cup Round Three tie against nineteen-time winners Wigan Warriors, including teenagers Myles Harrison, AJ Towse and Toby Warren in the preliminary squad for the first time this season.

The trio will be hoping to take to the field and make their competitive debuts for the club against the Super League giants on Friday night – a match you can watch LIVE and FREE on The Sportsman’s website, Youtube and Facebook pages.

Also included is Adam Cuthbertson who, after playing in the last two matches, is now one appearance away from three hundred in his career. Sam Scott is included after missing out on the preliminary squad and Marcus Stock returns after missing the last couple through injury. Perry Whiteley also returns and will be keen to build on his two-try outing against Sheffield Eagles in Round One of the cup.

Alongside the match, the Knights are running a Virtual Matchday to raise funds for the York City Knights Foundation and our player development work. One lucky contributor will win a two-night break at the Hilton Hotel, York – so why not contribute today HERE?!
