Ford names squad for Sheffield trip

York City Knights head to face Sheffield Eagles on Thursday afternoon and Head Coach James Ford has named his squad for our first visit to The Steel City since 2019.

Powerhouse forward Pauli Pauli returns to contention after completing his two-match ban and centre Jacob Ogden is included after completing the relevant return to play protocols after suffering a head injury in our victory at Bradford Bulls.

Teenage back-rower Toby Warren is the sole player to drop out from the twenty-man squad named for our last match against Halifax. Australian Bailey Antrobus, impressive on debut against the Panthers, could make his second appearance for the club while centre James Glover will be keen for inclusion against his former club.

Tickets are available for Thursday’s match at Sheffield with no tickets set to be available on the day. You can purchase yours from the York City Knights Club Shop between 10am and 4pm on Wednesday before the Club Shop closes for the extended Bank Holiday. Ticket prices start at £18 for adults, £12 for concessions and £5 for juniors.
