Assistant Coach Smith Departs Doncaster Knights

Doncaster Knights can confirm that assistant coach Nathan Smith has left the club now that the 2022/23 season has drawn to a close.

Following the conclusion of the campaign, Nathan has chosen to explore other opportunities within rugby union, and we wish him every success in his endeavours.

Discussing his experience as a member of the Knights, Nathan said:

“I have really enjoyed my time coaching at Doncaster Knights, and I have been privileged to work with some highly motivated players and staff. I would like to thank the club for providing me the opportunity to develop my coaching further, but feel it is now time for a new challenge. I wish the new squad all the best for the coming season.”

Nathan first arrived in Doncaster from Loughborough Students where he had led the BUCS Super Rugby coaching and forwards play for the men’s National Two rugby programme.

Prior to his arrival at the Knights, Nathan had held an assistant coaching position at Yorkshire Carnegie and a Head Coach position at Ilkley RFC.

Head coach Steve Boden thanked Nathan for his contribution to the Knights throughout his time at Castle Park.

“I’d like to thank Nathan on behalf of the club for the effort he’s put in over the last three seasons. He’s been a highly motivated and respected coach by both staff and players. We wish him well on his next adventure within rugby – we’re sure he’ll make a success of it.”
