19-Man Squad Named For Halifax Trip

Published: 6 September, 2019 - 6:00 pm

Knights head coach James Ford has named his 19-man squad for our final regular season match of the 2019 Betfred Championship season as York head to the MBI Shay Stadium to face Halifax.

Following last weekend’s impressive 24-23 victory over Leigh Centurions which took us into 3rd place, Ford has brought in three faces who sat out that win with centre Liam Salter coming back into the fold alongside front-row pair Ronan Dixon and Jack Teanby. Missing out on this week’s preliminary squad are Joe Porter, Kriss Brining and Danny King.

Earlier this season the Knights recorded a 38-16 victory over Sunday’s opponents at Bootham Crescent and a good following from the Minster city is expected for the trip to Halifax with four fully-subsidised coaches travelling to the game as the club says thank you for your continued and passionate support throughout 2019.
