Knights Sign Prop Charlie Connolly

The club are pleased to announce the signing of prop, Charlie Connolly, until the end of the season. 

The front row arrives from Chinnor RFC having previously played in the United States with the Houston Sabercats MLR franchise.

Discussing Charlie’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’ve known about Charlie for a few months but he was unavailable whilst playing in America. So, when he became available, considering the ongoing injury problems we’ve had at prop this season, it seemed the right time to strengthen our ranks in that area. ”

“We’re excited to see how he goes in a Knights shirt, as we feel like his style of game will allow him to contribute well to our squad.”

The 24 year old prop joins the Knights as a vital signing due to the injury issues ongoing in the prop position for Boden’s team this season but he is ready to make an impact.

“I got a call about a week ago from the coaches, had a great chat with them discussing the team goals for the season and how I’d fit into that. Coming to a top side like Doncaster was very enticing, so I was delighted to get the call.

“I’m here now and settled into the environment, the team and staff have been very welcoming and I’m looking forward to working hard over the next few months.”

It has been somewhat of a baptism of fire for Charlie as his first training week has coincided with the training week for our away trip to Jersey Reds. We look forward to seeing Charlie in a Knights shirt in the remainder of this season.
