YORK City Knights have continued their recruitment for 2021 by pulling off another major coup with the signing of winger Kieran Dixon from London Broncos.

Dixon will bring a wealth of a experience to York from through his time at London and Hull Kingston Rovers, where he primarily played in the Betfred Super League.

He debuted for hometown club London in 2012 and his form earned him a move to Hull KR in 2015 following the Broncos’ relegation from Super League.

Dixon was part of the Robins side which reached the 2015 Challenge Cup final - the club’s first since 1986. In 39 matches for KR, he bagged 28 tries before returning to London in 2017.

The ex-England Knights international went on to play a crucial role in the captial club’s promotion to Super League in 2018, scoring a career-best 26 tries that season.

The 28-year-old was a near ever-present as the much-praised London were narrowly relegated last year.

In total, Dixon has scored 123 tries in 171 club appearances, with 190 goals also to his name.

Knights head coach James Ford said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to sign Kieran.

“We’ve patiently been looking for an additional outside back for a while and we believe Kieran is exactly what we’re after.

“He has ample Super League experience, an outstanding try to game ratio, electric pace and he is a handful on early plays.

“I’m confident Kieran will fit in with our culture and add to it in places.”

Ford also picked out the Knights Squadbuilder for praise who helped fund the move.

He added: “I’d like to thank the efforts of our supporters - specifically the Knights 2020 Patrons and Squadbuilder - for their hard work and continuing commitment, which is enabling us to plan and build for what will hopefully be another successful season.”

Dixon said: “I’m pleased to have signed on for 2021 with the Knights.

“They’re a team with big ambitions and a drive to get to the top.

“With the new stadium and a great set of fans I’m really looking forward to getting started and working hard with the rest of the team.

“I think the direction the club is heading is really exciting and I’m honoured and proud to become a part of it.”
