York City Knights have named another six new signings, including former Halifax forward Adam Robinson.
The 29-year-old spent a short spell with York on loan last year, scoring three tries in four appearances before being recalled.
However, he has re-signed for the League 1 side, who also confirmed the signings of Wakefield Academy man Ronan Dixon, BARLA tourist Chris Siddons, and Liam Thompson and Joe Batchelor from Coventry Bears.
“It’s a real boost for us,” Ford told the York Press.
“Adam has played at the top end of the Championship for a number of years. He gives us something a bit different in the middle. He’s penetrative with a bit of an offload game.
“We need to get him happy, fit and focused, and if we get him in the right place mentally, we’ll have a right player on our hands.
