Knights Sign Full-Back/Wing George Simpson
16th June 2022
The club are thrilled to announce the signing of full-back/wing George Simpson ahead of the 2022/23 season.
George arrives from fellow Championship side Hartpury, for whom he originally signed ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Discussing George’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re really excited to get George Simpson on board at Doncaster Knights. We think he’ll add some pace and agility to our back-line – someone who’ll give us something different.
“It’ll be exciting to see him in a Knights shirt.”
As well as featuring for Hartpury, George has Championship experience with Ealing Trailfinders. This accompanies BUCS Super Rugby caps with Cardiff Met University, age-grade rugby with Harlequins and A League or Sevens involvement with Wasps and London Irish.
The 25-year-old back is relishing the opportunity to be welcomed into the Knights fold by his new teammates and coaches.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to join Doncaster Knights. I’m looking forward to challenging myself in a top, full-time, positive environment and getting stuck in with the boys.”
We look forward to seeing what George can bring to the squad throughout 2022/23.
