York City Knights are delighted to announce that forward Tim Spears has signed a one year extension to his contract at Bootham Crescent.

The former Featherstone captain joined the Knights on a one year deal this season but is now ‘going around’ again and will be staying until the end of 2018.

Commenting on the new deal, the 33 year old said: “I’m delighted to get the deal sorted and extend my time at York for a further 12 months. York have been great to me since my arrival and it was a very easy decision to extend my stay here.

“The club enjoys first class facilities, a great group of boys and excellent coaches. During my time here, it’s been great to be a part of the club’s continued improvement on and off the field and I look forward to continuing to grow our game and winning mentality in to next season.

“For now though, I’m pleased to get the deal sorted and concentrate solely on giving my all for the remainder of 2017.”

Head Coach James Ford said: “I’m delighted that Tim is going around again. He’s brought a degree of experience and professionalism to our young squad this season, especially when certain games have been right in the balance.

“He plays a part in the culture here both on and off the field, which has been invaluable.”

Spears should return from a hamstring injury ready to face Doncaster at Bootham Crescent in a crucial Kingstone Press League 1 Super 8s game on Sunday 3rd September (3pm). Tickets are available online from our partners Eventbrite HERE. As ever, kids under 16 can see this game for FREE!
