YORK City Knights have added Bradford Bulls to their pre-season schedule.

The sides will meet at Dewsbury’s Tetley’s Stadium on Sunday, January 26th (3pm).

This follows games against Featherstone Rovers (at the LD Nutrition Stadium on Sunday, January 5) and Halifax (at Bootham Crescent on Sunday, January 19).

Head coach James Ford told the club's website: "I’m happy with the programme we have lined up. We want to have a look at all the squad and I’m sure the supporters will be as eager as I am to see the new players settle in and see how the combinations are shaping up.

"We want to give ourselves the best opportunity coming into what will be a tough Championship season and get close to the standards we set ourselves heading into round one. We want to go into that game in form.

"These games give the players a real opportunity to force their way into the team for that game – they will all desperate to play in it – and they give the supporters opportunity to see what we’re about this year."

Tickets for all three games are available from the Knights office at York St John sports campus on Haxby Road, or by calling 01904 876527.
