DKTV | Will Holling delighted to make his first league start
16th January 2020
Will Holling made his first Championship start for the Knights on Friday evening as the side faced Newcastle Falcons in the first game of 2020.
The youngster was delighted to be handed his chance in the starting side.
“Signing in the summer was great and i am now happy to eventually get my first league start and playing it at Newcastle makes it that little bit better.”
The former Academy and Doncaster Phoenix star was also pleased to be voted the Twitter Fans’ Man of the Match.
“It is always a bonus, i am not sure how many of them were my own family though, but it was a bonus to get a reward from the performance.”
With nearly a 5,000 crowd at Kingston Park, Will settled his nerves after a fantastic early break inside the first minute of the game.
“It was the biggest crowd i have played in front of, there were nerves there but getting into the game fairly early i think helped.
There is still quite a long way to go in this season and hopefully i can get a few more starts going into the back end of the year.”
