Knights hope to challenge for promotion after finishing last season in second place, just three points behind Ealing Trailfinders.

The club has submitted a plan to double the capacity of Castle Park - taking it up to 10,015 - in order to meet Premiership requirements.

Knights start their league campaign at Ealing on September 10.
