Knights Take On Phoenix in 20/20 Cricket Challenge

This Sunday (Aug 13), Doncaster Knights will take on Doncaster Phoenix in a 20/20 cricket game.

For those cricket fans already missing the Ashes and fed-up with the rain interrupting The Hundred then look no further – the clash between the two Doncaster sides will take place at Doncaster Cricket Club, Bennetthorpe.

Whilst both clubs play their rugby at Castle Park, due to their league positions they obviously don’t play each other. so this is one of the few events where the two clubs can come face to face.

Phoenix President Paul Curzon said: “The fixture used to be a regular summer event pre-Covid, so we are pleased to get it back in the calendar and thank our friends at Doncaster Cricket Club for hosting the game.

“The players from both the Knights and Phoenix have been busy training over the last few weeks so the cricket match will be a great opportunity to have a bit of fun, a beer or two and hopefully beat the recent poor weather.”

The game starts at 2pm, bar and food facilities will be available all afternoon and a fundraising raffle will also be held.

Entry to the game is Free – so get along for a great afternoon!
