DONCASTER Knights’ boss Brett Davey has moved closer to completing his squad for the 2011-12 Championship campaign with the signing of Saracens Alex Brown.
The 22 year-old prop, who had been on the Aviva Premiership club’s books since July 2009. will boost an already formidable-looking Knights’ front-row.
The 5’11” 18 stone prop made his debut for Saracens against Rovigo in an Amlin Cup victory at Vicarage Road early in the 2009-10 season after several impressive appearances for Saracens Storm in the A League.
An England international at Under-16 and Under-18 level, Brown was a member of the Blackheath club before moving on to Saracens.
“Alex is another player I have a lot of belief in,” said Davey, who took over from Lynn Howells - currently in the frame to take over at Leeds - at the end of last season.
“Belief in his attitude not just his ability on the pitch. “You look at what Alex can bring to a game and balance it with the likes of Stuart Corsar, Andy Brown and Royce Burke Flynn and you have options during a game.
“Whilst Stuart and Royce have a higher level of experience Alex and Andy Brown bring an enthusiasm and determination that gives you a confidence in them”.
Season tickets for the club’s 2012 campaign are now available from Castle Park. Details of the various deals can be obtained from www.drfc.co.uk.
