York City Knights have made another notable addition to their 2019 Betfred Championship squad with the re-signing of hugely experienced prop Graeme Horne.

The 33 year old racked up over 250 top flight appearances with Hull FC, Huddersfield Giants and Hull KR in the Super League before joining the Knights ahead of the 2018 season – leading from the front scoring 9 tries in 23 games as York secured the League 1 title.

Knights Head Coach James Ford said: “Delighted Graeme is staying, he brought an immense amount of skill and intelligence to our middle unit. Graeme still has a huge appetite for rugby and is still keen to develop further.

“I was delighted by the impact Graeme had on a heap of the players at the club last year and I’m excited to see that again this season.”

The 24 players now officially signed on for next year are League 1 Player of the Year Connor Robinson, fellow nominee Ben Cockayne, hookers Harry Carter and Will Jubb, centres Brad Hey, Liam Salter and Perry Whiteley, wingers Judah Mazive and Kevin Brown, winger/full-backs Ash Robson and Matt Chilton, full-back/half-back Matty Marsh, England Students internationals Marcus Stock and Jason Bass, Captain Tim Spears, and packmen Graeme Horne, Jack Blagbrough, Ross Osborne, Ronan Dixon, Josh Jordan-Roberts, Joe Porter, Sam Scott, Jack Teanby and Mike Kelly.
