York RLFC x Fortus Business Accountants and Advisors


York RLFC are delighted to announce Fortus Business Accountants and Advisors have continued their partnership with the Club, becoming a Key Partner for the 2023 season.


The relationship between Fortus and the Club began a year ago with the company taking pride of place across our training range this year and, in 2023, they will be present as our Main Shirt Partner across the Knights’ shirts.

The brand will also feature on the Valkyrie’s playing and training kit throughout the coming season.

Fortus’ growth in recent years has seen revenue increase by 40% while their headcount has grown from twenty to in excess of sixty across the offices in York, Scarborough and Leeds.

Everyone at York RLFC are proud to continue and grow our relationship with Fortus and, on the partnership, Chairman Clint Goodchild said: “This deal is the next step in our journey which started in 2002.

“When I took over the Club, I outlined some strong ambitions, one of which was to take our Men’s team to Super League. That is something I stand by but, to achieve such ambitions, it’s important to have the right team behind the team.

“Having Fortus on board as a Key Partner will help us deliver upon not just our ambitions within the men’s game but also the women’s game where, last year, our team made it to the Super League Grand Final.”

Craig Herbert, Executive Director at Fortus, said: “We are thrilled to be part of the York RLFC project. Like us, they are an ambitious and entrepreneurial business that have plans to not only compete at the highest level but to support the local community in York.

“This deal represents our continued commitment to the city which has welcomed and supported us since we launched at the start of the pandemic.

“As business advisors, we understand the power of entrepreneurialism. Clint and the rest of the team at York RLFC have a lot in common with the businesses we work with and we’re confident that, together, we help them achieve their goals for the future.

“For now, we look forward to seeing both teams run onto the LNER Community Stadium pitch in their new kit which will launch later this month.”

The York RLFC 2023 Kit Launch event will take place on Saturday 12th November at Thor’s Tipi, York, YO24 1AA. Full information can be found HERE.
