York City Knights beaten in Championship opener at Whitehaven
5:52pm Sunday 3rd February 2013 in Sport
NEW coach Gary Thornton started his York City Knights reign with a 32-22 defeat at Whitehaven in the Championship.
The Knights trailed only 8-6 at the break and 14-12 early in the second half, but Whitehaven pulled clear midway through the second period.
However, two late tries from Hull dual-registration winger Tom Lineham ensured the visitors gained a bonus point.
Earlier, James Ford and Jack Lee had touched down for York, while Simon Brown kicked three goals on his debut.
