York hooker Andy Ellis has signed a one-year contract extension.
Ellis, 33, has twice hung up his boots in recent years but was persuaded by Knights coach James Ford to go around again earlier this year, and he will make it two years next campaign.
He said: “I’m delighted to get the deal sorted and extend my time at York for a further 12 months. York have been great to me since my arrival and it was a very easy decision to extend my stay here.
“The team has improved out of sight since I first arrived and I’m excited to see just how far we can progress.
“The club enjoys first class facilities so with a full run at pre season this winter, we should really hit the ground running, no matter what division we’re playing in.
“For now though, I’m pleased to get the deal sorted and concentrate solely on giving my all for the remainder of 2017.”
Ellis has previously played for Hull KR, Barrow, Harlequins, Wakefield and Featherstone.
He was named Championship Player of the Year in 2009 while with the Raiders.
