Knights Sign Scrum Half Lloyd Wheeldon

The club are excited to announce the signing of scrum half, Lloyd Wheeldon, until the end of the 2021/22 season. 

The half-back arrives from Heriot’s Rugby where he played for the Scottish side in the Super6 competition.

Discussing Lloyd’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’ve been aware of Lloyd’s ability for some time now. He got some great experience down at Harlequins and a taste of a professional environment.

“With Gus Warr going back to Sale Sharks, it was a great fit for us. Lloyd is very competitive, which is great to have within the squad.”

Lloyd has most notably played for the British Army’s Senior XV as a Lance Corporal in 3 Para. It was the scrum half’s impressive performance in an Army v Navy game which put him firmly on Harlequins radar.

As well as Harlequins, the Army man has also featured for Heriots in the Scottish Super6 competition and for Castleford Tigers in Rugby League action.

The English half-back joins the Knights as a young player keen to secure game time.

“I’ve always been interested in being at Doncaster Knights as I know it’s a well-respected club, and being a Northern lad, it speaks volumes to play for them.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve as a squad in the remainder of this season.”
