Knights Back Davey Re-Signs

We are excited to announce that utility back Harry Davey will be staying with Doncaster Knights for the 2023/24 season.

24-year-old Harry signed for the Knights from Championship competition Cornish Pirates ahead of the 2021/22 season. Born in Dewsbury, the Yorkshireman made the return North having originally moved to Penzance from Yorkshire Carnegie in 2019.

His time at Mennaye Field was affected by injury, but Harry still managed 10 appearances in a range of positions across the backline. A former England U18s squad member, Harry had made his senior debut for Carnegie in 2017 against London Irish.

Harry’s Donny debut came in 2021 and last season he began to excel in a strong Knights backline. Returning this year with a visible lift in confidence in his abilities, he earned his place at the start of the season before injury interrupted his campaign.

Having made 26 appearances so far, Harry is looking forward to getting back out in front of the Castle Park crowd next season.

“I’m delighted to have re-signed once more with Doncaster Knights.

“It’s been a frustrating year for fans, players, and staff but everyone at the club is ready to go again next season and challenge the top of the table.

“Thank you to all the fans who have always continued to show their support.”

Knights Head Coach Steve Boden is excited to see what more there is to come for the young back, especially in a Knight shirt.

“We’re really happy that Harry is staying on board. He brings great versatility to our backline as he can play in numerous positions. We’ve put him in a couple of new positions this year where we feel his power in contact really suits him.

“He fits into our squad really well – a great team man. He’s had a tough year through injury but testament to Harry that he bounced back and got some rugby at the back end of the season.

“We’re delighted to see him develop further in a Doncaster Knights shirt. The beauty of this signing is that we feel that Harry is starting to build up quite a bit of experience as a professional, yet he’s still relatively young, and we feel like we’ve not seen anywhere near the best of him yet.”

We are excited to see what Harry can continue to bring to the Knights badge throughout next season.
