York City Knights are delighted to confirm the signing of James Clare from Castleford Tigers on loan.
30-year-old Clare comes to the Knights with a wealth of experience at both Super League and Championship level and played a starring role for the Knights back in 2015, scoring nine tries during a dual-registration spell from the Tigers,
The contract for Clare’s loan deal was signed last month and, currently, expires next week. With centre Jacob Ogden currently waiting on the sidelines for his competitive Knights debut due to a knee issue, Clare’s arrival provides James Ford with further options in the threequarters and he is available for selection for this Sunday’s Betfred Championship match against Leigh Centurions – one of Clare’s former clubs.
On Clare’s acquisition, Head Coach Ford said: “I’m really pleased to be in a position to bring James to the Club. He’s someone I’ve had the pleasure of working with on previous occasions.
“He’s an outstanding professional and leader who will facilitate the learning and development of our young outside backs. He’s also a Super League quality player who will add punch and strike to our team.”
Tickets are now available for the Knights’ match against Leigh, priced at £20 for adults, £15 for concessions and free for under-16s. You can get yours from yorkcityknights.com/tickets or by calling 01904 942232.
Tickets will be available on the day from 12pm from the North and West Stand Ticket Booths.
