York City Knights are pleased to announce the signing of highly rated winger Lewis Carr from Castleford Tigers on Dual Registration terms.
The 19 year old has an impressive try scoring record while progressing through the Tigers academy ranks, and featured for the Knights in pre-season against Halifax.
Carr has earned representative honours with Yorkshire Academy, and Knights Head Coach James Ford worked with Carr in the England Academy squad that secured a memorable series victory over Australia in 2018.
Knights Head Coach James Ford said: “Lewis has plenty of potential to take this opportunity and really kick on. He’s aware that there’s some wingers in front of him, he’s aware of where he needs to focus on in terms of his development and I’m looking forwards to seeing the competition for places unfold.”
Carr added: “I’m looking forward to joining York on Dual Registration. I feel like Fordy is a great coach with a lot of experience, and think he will get the best out of me.
“I’m looking forward to developing within a great environment, playing for a top side and a great set of lads.”
Lewis comes into consideration for the Knights squad to take on Halifax at the Shay Stadium this Sunday, 1st March at 3pm. To book your ticket & travel for the game please call 01904 876527 before 5pm today (Friday 28th February).
