York City Knights Ladies return to the LNER Community Stadium for their first home match of this Betfred Women’s Super League season to host the much-fancied St Helens on Sunday afternoon.
Lindsay Anfield’s team will kick-off our second Knights double-header of 2022 at 12pm and go into this weekend’s game on the back of making a winning start to their Betfred Women’s Super League season last weekend.
A dominant showing in a 50-6 victory at Huddersfield Giants saw the Ladies return to winning ways, their previous match seeing Anfield’s team more than play their part in a Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup classic before falling to a 28-26 defeat to rivals Leeds Rhinos.
This weekend will see the team play their first home match since emphatically defeating Oulton Raidettes in the Women’s Challenge Cup quarter-finals and, if the Knights are to be successful this weekend, the quality of full-back Tara Jane Stanley will be vital.
That afternoon saw the England star cross for four tries and will be one of a number of international stars on show across the two teams.
One who will miss out is Kelsey Gentles, the winger having picked up a hand injury in training ahead of the Huddersfield match. Georgia Taylor, however, scored from the left flank and will be keen to line up against Saints this weekend.
Tickets bought for this weekend apply for both matches of the double-header, giving Knights supporters a great afternoon of sporting entertainment as well as great value!
Tickets are priced at £20 for adults, £15 for concessions and FREE for under-16s. They can be bought online from the York Stadium Management Company Ticket Office HERE.
Tickets are also available on the day from the Ticket Office Booth at the back of the North Stand.
