York make second resigning for 2021

York have made their second re-signing for next season, after securing the services of hooker Will Jubb on a one-year deal.

A former Hull KR academy graduate, Jubb made seven appearances for Rovers before joining the City Knights in 2018 following a successful dual-registration period.

He has since gone on to command a regular spot in James Ford’s side, making 65 appearances in total and scoring 13 tries.

“I’m really excited to still be part of the York City Knights journey and have the opportunity to play my part in what the club is wanting to achieve,” he said. “It was an absolute no brainier for me to sign again as I love the club, the fans are absolutely unbelievable and we have a great set of lads here.

“Nothing can compare to playing with all the lads in front of the Knights fans and how they really get behind the team and lift us throughout the games and that is something I wouldn’t want to play without.”

York head coach Ford added: “It’s been a pleasure to see Will continue to improve at the rate he has over the last few seasons. He has outstanding skill, ruck reactions & deception and his defensive contact has really kicked on.

“This development is based upon Will’s drive to be better, his intelligence and his approach to feedback. As long as these characteristics remain consistent Jubby will continue to grow as a player and a person.”
