YORK City Knights are the Betfred League One champions.

James Ford's team beat Whitehaven 32-14 at a bouncing Bootham Crescent to seal the crown on the last day of the regular season.

They finished two points above Bradford Bulls, the odds-on title favourites.

Connor Robinson booted six penalties to go with his two conversions - and in doing so set new all-time York RL points and goals in a season records.
