We are delighted to announce our latest signing today as second row Ed Falkingham joins from Yorkshire outfit Hull Ionians.
Ed has been a standout performer in National One this season making 26-appearances including three Man of the Match performances.
The 22-year-old was included in the Yorkshire senior squad that recently faced Lancashire and Eastern Counties, playing alongside former Knights such as Joe Bedford and Ali Thomson.
Prior to joining Ionians Ed competed for Southern Districts in the prolific New South Wales Shute Shield competition having learnt the game in the ranks of North East Division One outfit Driffield and at Pocklington School.
Ed takes the total number of new signings at Castle Park to six ahead of the 2016/17 season.
