York make ex-Super League star fifth signing for 2020

York have made former Halifax, Hull, Featherstone and London Broncos winger Will Sharp their fifth signing for 2020.

The 33-year-old brings a wealth of experience to the club having made over 250 appearances in a career that has spanned 11 years, scoring over 100 tries.

He was recently released by Halifax following a four-year spell at The Shay, but will now move east to the ambitious City Knights.

Sharp becomes the club’s latest high-profile recruit, following the signings of Danny Washbrook, Chris Clarkson, James Green and Ben Johnston.

“I’m really excited to be signing for signing for an ambitious club like York City Knights, and I’m looking forward to meeting up with the squad and meeting the boys,” he said. “I’m eager to make an impression and contribute to what is already a very good squad.

“I still think I can get better and make improvements, physically and in terms of my skills and I know Fordy and the environment at York will facilitate that. I can’t wait to get started.”

Knights head coach James Ford added: “I’m pleased to sign Will. He’s a big athletic lad who will bring strike power and experience to our edges. This isn’t his first barn dance – he’s played plenty of Championship rugby and theres versatility to his game too, providing cover at full back if needed.

“He’s still keen to improve even at this stage of his career which is a big positive for me and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
