Petersen pens York deal

Forward Dave Petersen has signed a deal with York City Knights for 2019 after a successful period on trial with the club.

The 26-year-old began his career with Hull KR before spells with Workington, Oxford and Bradford Bulls to name just three prior to overseas stints with Australia’s Mackay Cutters and Boston 13s in the USA. Petersen featured for the Knights in their Boxing Day defeat at Bradford where head coach James Ford was suitably impressed with his showing. “Dave acquitted himself really well on Boxing Day in two vital positions at hooker and loose-forward,” he told the club’s official website, adding that Petersen fits the club’s philosophies, outlining him as a good recruit for the club. “He embodies a lot of what we are about in terms of effort, never giving in and working as hard as he can for his team mates.” 

The forward is set to feature again for the Knights in their second pre-season outing and their first in the revamped Yorkshire Cup competition as they face amateurs Hunslet Club Parkside this afternoon in a double-header at Dewsbury’s Tetleys Stadium.
