Michael Hills | Forever a Knight.
10th September 2020
Following last week’s announcement on the players that would be leaving the Club ahead of the 2020/21 season we caught up with Captain Michael Hills for a reflection on his time at Castle Park.
The former DRFC Mini Junior returned to Doncaster ahead of the Knights 2013/14 National One campaign, playing a crucial role in the side’s immediate return to the Championship.
Hillsy was made on field skipper, alongside Club Captain Matt Challinor, the following summer and over the next three seasons the Knights reached the British & Irish Cup final and consecutive play-off appearances.
Reflecting on his time at Castle Park Michael recounts those fantastic achievements, describing the 2015/16 squad as being “the closest i’ve ever felt a team of players have been” & deservingly beat Bristol Bears in the play-off final second leg.
