First game of 2018 just a week away

Hull Kingston Rovers will be back in action in just one week’s time when the team face partner club York City Knights in the first pre-season friendly of 2018.

The clash against the League 1 side will be held in honour of Ben Cockayne’s testimonial on Sunday, 7th January, kick-off 3pm.

Cockayne, who enjoyed a long career with Rovers, will return to his former stomping ground with his new Knights side, who he has joined for the 2018 campaign, in what will be a first hit out of the year for the Robins ahead of a return to the Betfred Super League.

Entry to the game will be priced at £12 adults, £10 concessions (over 65s and students) and £5 for juniors under 16. Tickets will not be available in advance, with all supporters paying on the turnstiles on the day. Fans are therefore advised to give themselves more time than usual to enter the ground on matchday.
