Knights add hot prospect Jubb

Published: 12 December, 2017 - 9:13 pm

York City Knights have made another addition to their 2018 squad with the signing of promising hooker Will Jubb on a one year deal.

Jubb previously captained the City of Hull Academy side and made a try-scoring debut for Hull KR in the 2016 Super League Qualifiers. He is no stranger to the Knights, featuring 16 times on dual registration in 2017, scoring 5 tries.

He gives head coach James Ford another option at dummy-half, alongside Andy Ellis and Harry Carter, as well as cover at loose forward.

Ford said: “He gives really good service from dummy-half and defensively he’s good in the middle.

“He is a great kid and a really good prospect. If he trains and plays with the same attitude he brought with him on dual registration last year, we’ll have a great player on our books.”

Commenting on the move, Jubb said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of playing for York again next year and testing myself in a really competitive league.

“I really enjoyed my time at the club last year, especially playing in front of the great fans that make the long trips to support the team week in week out, and really want to play my part in helping the team to build going forward from last season.

“I can’t wait to get started and get back involved with the team.”
