Castleford Tigers have confirmed that Friday night’s planned final pre-season friendly fixture against York City Knights has been cancelled.
A statement on the Tigers website said: “In order to preserve the pitch for the first Super League fixture v Wakefield Wildcats on Sunday 8th February we’ve had no choice but to cancel this game.
“Any pre-purchased tickets can be refunded in the Tigers Den club shop from Friday. Online ticket orders can be refunded by calling 01977 529265.”
Castleford were planning to field a side mostly of young players, plus a handful of first team squad men in need of another game, including Junior Moors, who was to have returned after injury.
