York sign Super League veteran

York City Knights have confirmed the signing of experienced forward Danny Washbrook from Hull FC.

The 33-year-old was revealed as one of several players leaving the Black and Whites at the end of 2019 but has now put pen to paper on a deal with James Ford’s side.

Washbrook brings a wealth of experience to the Knights, having played over 300 professional games since debuting for Hull in 2005.

He has also had a spell with Wakefield and spent time on dual-registration with Doncaster earlier this season.

Danny Washbrook has signed with York for 2020.

He may yet add to his Super League games tally, with York still battling for promotion in the Championship play-offs.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping the club keep progressing the way they have under James’ leadership,” he said.

“Having spoken to a number of players current and past they spoke highly about all aspects of the club and that excited me.”

York head coach James Ford added: “I’m very pleased to bring a player with such professionalism to the club. Danny has a wealth of experience that will help improve our culture further and directly impact on the younger players in the squad.

He’s a very intelligent rugby player who will benefit all aspects of our performance. I’m looking forward to working with Danny.”
