Knights Tighthead Prop Foster Re-Signs

We are excited to announce that tighthead prop Andrew Foster will be staying with Doncaster Knights for the 2023/24 season.

29-year-old Andrew first joined the Knights in the summer of 2019 from Yorkshire Carnegie having made 26 appearances for the Leeds-based side.

Having previously featured for Rotherham Titans in the Championship, Andrew had also experienced National One rugby with Blaydon RFC before the Newcastle-born prop made his Premiership debut from his home-town club – Newcastle Falcons – against Saracens in April 2015.

Andrew was a mainstay of the Knights line-up last year as his performances often saw him getting the better of his direct opposition as his scrummaging was of important note throughout 2021/22. Unfortunately, injury struck early this season and kept the tighthead out for nearly 6 months.

However, the front rower – who will continually to be loyally sponsored by club partner, AGM Safety Ltd – is focused on continuing his spell at Castle Park and moving on to next season having returned at the tail end of the 2022/23 campaign.

“I am excited to be remaining a Doncaster Knight after a tough season this year and I look forward to pushing on with the club and seeing what our future can hold.”

Knights Head Coach Steve Boden is pleased to have his prop continuing at Castle Park.

“Andrew has been proven to be a consistent performer throughout the Championship. He’s had a tough year with injury and so we’re looking forward to seeing him put in some more consistent performances in Doncaster next season and hopefully get the game time on the field that he needs.

“He’s a good guy who fits into the squad really well and he’s an unbelievable team man, which is everything that Doncaster Knights wants to be associated with.”

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