Former Knight returns

Published: 19 January, 2019 - 2:39 pm

York City Knights are delighted to announce the signing of former player Kriss Brining on a one-year deal from Betfred Super League side Salford Red Devils.

25-year-old Brining played for five seasons with the Knights after coming through the club’s scholarship program, making his York debut in 2011 against Widnes aged 17 – becoming the Knights’ youngest ever player. Through his initial spell with the Minster city club, Brining made 86 first-team appearances, scoring 54 tries in the process – with 45 tries in as many games during his last two years with the club.

A move to Salford Red Devils followed and, while he featured 24 times for the Super League club in his first season, he was unable to feature in 2018 due to injury problems, problems which saw him released by the club at the end of the year.

Nevertheless, Brining has passed a medical and has been declared fit to train and play for the club. He had been linked with other clubs but has opted to sign for his former club and his signing has been made possible with the support of the Knights’ Squadbuilder fund. Pot of Gold tickets are available at each and every home game and all funds are used to boost the playing squad.

Pot of Gold tickets will be available at tomorrow evening’s Yorkshire Cup match against Betfred Championship rivals Dewsbury Rams. Matchday ticket prices are £15 for adults, £10 for concessions while under 16s, as always, get in for FREE.
