York City Knights have today confirmed the permanent signing of former dual-registration star Matty Marsh following his release from Super League’s Hull KR.

The 23-year-old made twelve appearances for the Betfred League One champions, crossing the line ten times during his time with the Minster city club while also making nine appearances for his parent club. Having come through the academy system at KR, he went on to make almost fifty appearances for The Robins before being one of nine released by the club following the end of the 2018 campaign.

Now, though, the half-back, who also featured heavily for York at full-back, has signed a permanent deal – believed to initially be a one-year-deal – with James Ford’s men following the Knights’ promotion and the League One Coach of the Year was understandably delighted. “I’m really pleased to able to continue working with Matty,” he explained. “He’s a talented young player who has lots of improvement in him as long as he continues to strive for development.”

Marsh himself told the media that he was happy to have joined the Bootham Crescent club. “I massively enjoyed my time at the club on DR in 2018 and loved playing with a great set of lads,” adding that, despite interest from other teams, “this is the club I wanted to sign for.”
