Doncaster Knights’ Dougie Flockhart has been nominated for the Championship Player of the Month award for September.

The Scottish winger and goalkicker has amassed 41 points during Doncaster’s excellent start to life back in the second tier and played a crucial part in the wins over Jersey and Yorkshire Carnegie.

Former rugby league player Flockhart was instrumental in Doncaster’s promotion back to the Greene King IPA Championship, hauling in 237 points across the 2013/14 season.

His abilities have continued into the professional second tier, proving significant in the Knights’’ three wins from four, including kicking six successful penalties to see Doncaster come from 18-7 behind to seal victory over Jersey in Round 2.

In his latest performance, the winger scored a try, three conversions and two penalties to help Doncaster in their victory over last season’s semi-finalists Yorkshire Carnegie.

Voting opens today and closes at midnight on Thursday, October 2. The winner will be announced on Friday, October 3.
