York City Knights have confirmed that Danny Kirmond has signed a new one-year deal with the club for 2022.
With over 300 career appearances to his name, Kirmond came to the Knights with vast experience ahead of the 2021 campaign after nine years with Wakefield Trinity.
Veteran forward Kirmond began his career with Featherstone Rovers in 2005 before having a three-year spell with Huddersfield Giants.
In his first year with the Knights, Kirmond made eighteen appearances for the club and, towards the end of the season, put his hand up to help the team in the middle, moving in from his more recognisable role in the back row.
On the retention of Kirmond, Knights Head Coach James Ford said:
“Danny is a really important re-signing for the team and the club. His experience will be key in helping a new team gel.
“He had a good season under difficult circumstances, playing with numerous half-backs. Those makeshift options impacted his attacking game but he always worked tremendously hard, regularly topping fifty tackles per game. This is the kind of effort a good team needs.
“Danny will also play a key role in the development of Toby Warren and our other young forwards.”
