THE York Select XIII will have a new kit for the 2013 friendly against York City Knights.

They have adopted the colours of the Boxing Bowel Cancer charity they are supporting, as shown in this computerised image of the kit, which is made by Raven Sport.

The strip’s main sponsor is Bowel Cancer UK, and the website Love Rugby League is also on the chest. 

SN Motor Services are the main rear sponsor and Chris and Stuart Brown, who coach at Heworth ARLC, have also sponsored the rear of the shirt via Browns Plasterers. The sleeves are sponsored by ex-Acorn player Andy Lee’s business, Core Chiropractic.

The badge is called the Star Of Hope, the symbol adopted by the colorectal cancer community.

Replica shirts can be ordered for £30 via Select team manager Nic Caldwell on 07854 106380, with proceeds going to the charity.
