YORK Knights forward Harry Price has signed a one-year contract extension ahead of the 2024 season. 

Price becomes the latest player to sign a new deal with the Knights, alongside the likes of Josh Daley and AJ Towse, with Andrew Henderson now having 16 players registered for the 2024 Betfred Championship season.

The former York Acorn academy product signed for his hometown club in the Summer of 2023, before going on to make his Knights debut against Toulouse Olympique in February, after also having a stint with Betfred Super League outfit Hull Kingston Rovers. 

Price will be hoping for more opportunities across the 2024 season at the club he supports, with the front-rower delighted to be extending his stay with York.

Price expressed his delight, saying: "I'm really happy to have signed a new one-year deal with the Club.

"It's been a really good first year, I've developed so much as a player, so I'm delighted to be staying for another season and I'm really looking to seeing where 2024 takes me.

"Last season have me a taster of what it's like to play at the level of the Betfred Championship.

"I had to put in a lot of work behind the scenes and a lot of hours with the coaching staff and players to get better and improve.

"To make my York debut last year was a really proud moment given that I grew up as a Knights fan and I'm hoping to make more appearances in 2024."

Henderson was equally as happy for Price to be staying at the club, adding: “I’m really pleased to be able to keep Harry here at the York Knights for the 2024 season.

“Harry is still in the development phase of his career and last year made his professional debut and acquitted himself well during a handful of appearances.

"Harry has made a significant upward journey in his performance levels since first joining the Club and he knows that improvements are still needed in his game to reach the next level.

“But Harry is a great person to have in our environment, so we’re really pleased to have him here for another year.”
