After last weeks crushing defeat at Keighley, players at York City Knights are looking to quickly make amends in more ways than one.

The Knights travel to Doncaster this Sunday looking to immediately bounce back in the Kingstone Press Championship, and as an 'apology' to the Knights faithful that traveled to Keighley, the players themselves are footing the bill for the supporters coach. The offer came about after a conversation on twitter between supporter Simon Hall and player Simon Brown, and the Knights star half-back was quick to accept the suggestion.

"We think its a great idea" Brown said: "After last weeks performance the supporters deserve an apology, so the lads will be happy to all chip in the get the fans to Doncaster."

Matty Nicholson agreed, saying: "I have no problem helping get the supporters to Doncaster after last week, they deserve much better and hopefully they will see that at the Keepmoat."

Winger George Elliot was also happy to oblige: "The fans make a massive difference to our performance so hopefully we'll have plenty of them in blue and white cheering us on."

Assistant Coach Mick Ramsden was pleased with the reaction of the team: "Its a great response from the lads. We had a lot of disappointed players in the dressing room last week and rightly so, but we have a great chance to put right a lot of wrongs at Doncaster and it will be great to have as many fans as possible there cheering them on."

The supporters coach will depart from its usual pick-up points:
The Ainsty Pub, Clarence St and Huntington Stadium
on Sunday, times TBC.
To book your place call 07763121732 now.

It will be completely free so hurry to confirm your place!

What are the players going to give the fans when Doncaster put the cleaners through them? I can see a vicious circle beginning to emerge.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

They would after pay for my entrance fee too to watch that rubbish. Only messing gav mate 😄😄😄 its a great gesture from the players and I hope the fans get behind the team. But on a serious note won't this benefit Doncaster more than York? As more fans might attend the game?

No not at all Simon mate but I would of thought York would need as many fans as they can get to attend an home game more than an away one. But you will know more about that than me.
