SAINTS three-quarter Eboni Partington is leaving to join York Valkyrie ahead of the 2024 season.

The departure comes the week after prop Shona Hoyle announced she was joining Leeds Rhinos.

She featured heavily for Saints last year, after earning the number three shirt ahead of the 2023 campaign.

Partington played 16 games for the Saints last season, scoring nine tries for the club, including one in the first ever Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Final at Wembley.

She also scored a crucial double in the 2022 Final at Elland Road, with Saints winning 16-8.

In all she played 41 times for the club, scoring 18 tries in all competitions.

The England International progressed through the Saints Academy, making her debut for the first team against Stanningley back in 2019.

In all, she won one Women’s Super League title, a League Leaders’ Shield and three Challenge Cup trophies during her time at the club.
