THE kick-off time of York City Knights' trip to Newcastle Thunder on Saturday, September 3 has been rearranged to 7pm.

The change comes to prevent a clash with Newcastle United's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace at St James' Park, which takes place on the same day from 3pm.

The visit to Kingston Park will be York's final away match of the regular Betfred Championship season.

The Knights will be seeking to continue their strong form against Newcastle, having already beaten Thunder twice this season.

James Ford's side came out on top 42-13 in February's Betfred Challenge Cup fourth round tie before winning 38-6 in April's first league meeting, both matches taking place at the LNER Community Stadium.

The two sides will also face off in the final game of the Summer Bash on Sunday, July 31 (6.15pm) at Headingley.
