YORK City Knights Learning Disability Super League team have marked their inaugural season with a celebration event at Old Trafford.

More than 600 of those that have supported the programme this year were at the event, including players, coaches, volunteers, family members and partners of the LDSL.

Players were given the opportunity to collect memento to mark their efforts over the course of the season.

Former York winger Waine Pryce handed out those to the York players at the event.

The LDSL is a collaboration between Super League, the Rugby Football League and the charity Community Integrated Care.

The 2019 season featured sides Castleford Tigers, Hull KR, Leeds Rhinos, St Helens, Wakefield Trinity, Warrington Wolves, Widnes Vikings, Wigan Warriors and York.

Speaking at the event, Mark Adams, chief executive of Community Integrated Care, said: “To welcome over 600 people to celebrate the success of the sport is just incredible.

“This programme has had a phenomenal impact in its inaugural season. It has offered the players unforgettable experiences, and helped to develop new friendships, greater confidence and life skills.

“As a charity that is absolutely committed to changing the lives of people with support needs and creating opportunities, we couldn’t be prouder.”
