Head Coach Joe Ford joined the coaching team as Backs Coach for the Knights in the summer of 2020 from Yorkshire Carnegie before being promoted to the Head Coach role ahead of the 2023/24 Championship season.

The former fly-half can boast an impressive playing career with Premiership seasons for Northampton Saints, Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers.

Joe left the Welford Road outfit in the summer of 2019 to take up a dual player/coach role with Carnegie before officially retiring from the game in January 2020. It was then that his services were quickly acquired by Boden for the 2020/21 season.

Using the experience and tutelage of his playing days in combination with his ever-developing coaching technique, Joe has created a strong back line which can pride itself on its impressive communication channels and it’s leadership on-field in set-plays.
