York City Knights have made a notable addition to their 2020 squad with the signing of hugely experienced Danny Washbrook from Hull FC.

The 34 year old forward brings with him an incredible 337 games of Super League experience – Washbrook spent 11 seasons at the KCOM Stadium, split over two spells, and made his debut for the Airlie Birds in 2005.

In 2006 he represented FC in their Grand Final defeat to St Helens before leaving to join Wakefield Trinity in 2012.

After four years in West Yorkshire, he returned to his home town club and lifted the Challenge Cup on two occasions.

Head Coach James Ford said: “I’m very pleased to bring a player with such professionalism to the club. Danny has a wealth of experience that will help improve our culture further and directly impact on the younger players in the squad.

He’s a very intelligent rugby player who will benefit all aspects of our performance. I’m looking forward to working with Danny.”

Washbrook added: “I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping the club keep progressing the way they have under James’ leadership.

“Having spoken to a number of players current and past they spoke highly about all aspects of the club and that excited me.”
