Trio join York on loan

York have announced the loan signings of trio Jamie Ellis, Tyla Hepi and Jake Sweeting.

Ellis, 31, joins the Championship club from Leigh on a two-week loan deal, which will then be reviewed week by week.

He said: “I’m looking forward to hooking up with Fordy (James Ford, head coach) and the club. It is looking great at the moment with the stadium, players and getting to AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final.

“Personally, I’m looking forward to getting some game time, to get back to my best and get some confidence.”

Hepi, 28, also joins on a two-week loan deal from Castleford.

He added: “For my time here I’m looking to get some well needed game time and playing under fatigue with experienced players, I know York have an abundance of knowledgeable players who have played at the top level for some time so hopefully I can learn from them and James Ford and also add value to the team through enthusiasm and tenacity.”

Sweeting, 21, joins from league rivals Featherstone, with York’s Perry Whiteley heading the other way on loan.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to my time at the club whilst I’m here and hoping to get as much game time as possible and help the team as much as I can.”
