York City Knights have moved to strengthen their back line options by bringing in centre Conor McGrath from Halifax on a one month loan.
The 22 year old Halifax academy product burst onto the first team scene in 2017 when scoring a hat-trick in the Betfred Championship against Sheffield Eagles, and has featured in Richard Marshall’s teams that finished in the top 4 in both 2017 and 2018.
Knights Head Coach James Ford said: “I’m pleased to bring in an outside back of Conor’s potential, I’d like to thank the supporters, sponsors and the board for backing me once again.
“Conor has the potential to be a quality player for the Knights if his attention to detail is where it needs to be. He needs to show a desire to work hard, learn and succeed. He’s coming from a great environment and I’m looking forward to working with him and facilitating his development.”
McGrath said: “I’m really grateful to get an opportunity to play some Championship rugby, especially at a club that’s flying at the minute!
“Hopefully I can get out there and make an impression. I have a big month ahead of me and have to take my chances, as and when they come.”
Conor comes into contention for the Knights squad this Sunday as they look to make it a super six consecutive Championship this Sunday when high-flying Sheffield Eagles visit Bootham Crescent. Get your tickets online HERE!
