YORK City Knights Ladies will be looking to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet when they face the British Army tonight in the Challenge Shield Final (7.30pm ).

In a rematch of the 2017 final of the competition, which saw York prevail as 26-24 winners, the Knights will be looking to retain the cup at Castleford Tigers’ home ground, the Mend-a-Hose Jungle.

The Challenge Shield is competed for by teams who exited the Challenge Cup at the second round stage.

York knocked out the RAF Ladies and Barrow Ladies in order to reach the final.

The Army booked their spot thanks to wins over Stanningley and then Super League outfit Featherstone.

The Knights are currently bottom of the Super League table, having lost all of their six matches this season, but are confident of their chances to land the Shield.

England international and Knights star Ashleigh Hyde said: “We’re trying to be smarter and be more clinical in possession because we have some really good ball handlers.

“If we can convert what we’re doing in training into a game we should get over the line next week.”

Assistant coach Kay Rollinson added: “We played them a few years ago and it was a really really tough game. We only won on the last play so we know what to expect and we know they’ll be there for the full 80 battling away.

“The girls are buzzing, it’s a chance for some silverware and the effort these girls put in every week, it’s no more than they deserve.”

Adult tickets are priced at £3, with concessions entry costing just £1.
