Champions Valkyrie to host Trophy Parade

Newly-crowned league champions York Valkyrie will host a Trophy Parade on the River Ouse on Thursday evening, thanks to the support of City Cruises!

York Valkyrie captured their first Betfred Women's Super League Grand Final title earlier this month thanks to a 16-6 win over reigning champions Leeds Rhinos at the LNER Community Stadium.

Victory for the Valkyrie ensured they became the first sports team from York to win a top-flight league title!

Lindsay Anfield's side also secured a second successive League Leaders' Shield in 2023, a new record in the BWSL.

Following the Valkyrie's historic in 2023, we are delighted to be staging a Trophy Parade onboard a City Cruises boat to celebrate their achievements!

York RLFC will like to encourage supporters to gather from 5.45pm on Thursday on the banks of the River Ouse in front of the York City Rowing Club by Lendal Bridge.

York Valkyrie's players and coaching staff will parade the BWSL Grand Final trophy and their medals from the City Cruises boat, which will pass supporters at around 6pm - 6.15pm.

York RLFC would like to pay our thanks to our Club Partners City Cruises for their support in helping stage this event to pay tribute to the history-making York Valkyrie!
