James Green aiming for success with York after signing new contract

York prop James Green has agreed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 29-year-old joined the Knights from Bradford ahead of the 2020 season, making five appearances before the Championship season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Green has made more than 150 career appearances for Hull KR, Leigh, Castleford, Bradford and York.

York coach James Ford said: “I’m pleased to retain James, he has plenty of strengths in his game – his intent of carry, ability to win us ruck speed, finding offloads and the threat he poses near the try-line.

“We’ve had a good chat regarding areas we need to work at and I’m confident we’ll see a fitter sharper James Green in 2021.

“He was making good progress in 2020 regarding these details and I’m looking forwards to seeing him continue working at them.”

Green said: “I’m really happy to be re-signing. Although last season was very short, I really enjoyed it.

“Everyone wants to be a part of success and a professional environment and that’s exactly what we have here.”
