The London Broncos will freshen up the squad for Sunday’s game at York City Knights.

Several home-grown academy players will make their senior debut tomorrow as part of interim head coach Mike Eccles’s plan to refresh the squad.

Eccles described the move as “exciting” and expressed his pride at seeing the club’s academy players develop.

The Broncos face York City Knights at the LNER Community Stadium on Sunday in our next Betfred Championship fixture. The squad is looking to bounce back after a disappointing defeat to Workington Town.

Eccles said: “After the match on Thursday we have made the decision to shake the squad up a bit.

“Some Broncos’ academy players will make their debut on Sunday which should help to freshen the team up It’s really exciting to see home grown academy players come up through the squad and get the chance to play for the first time.

“We are all keen to see the younger guys make their debut alongside our senior players and we’re excited to see how they perform and what they can bring to the team.”

Eccle added: “It makes it even more special that they are graduating and coming up through our own system – we are all really proud of that.”

He hopes the reshuffle will help freshen up the team for their match on Sunday.

Last time Broncos took to the field against York, it was a closely fought encounter. Despite York claiming the victory, Broncos represented a tough challenge for them.

“York are a very good team,” said Eccles. “They’re flying high at the moment, sitting in the top three in the league.

“They are a very experienced championship team with a good coach. We are looking forward to going up there and seeing what we can achieve.

“York has an impressive stadium and will be a competitive side so it should be a great match for the fans.”

Kicks off is at 3:00pm on Sunday 5th June at the LNER Community Stadium.
