VIDEO: Doncaster Sports Awards Roll of Honour - Professional Coach of the Year - Clive Griffiths

Doncaster Knights’ director of rugby CLIVE GRIFFITHS has been a man on a mission over the last year.

The workaholic Welshman did not leave a single stone unturned in his quest to lead the Castle Park club back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

And his experience, knowledge and contacts in the game have been right at the forefront of Doncaster’s National One title success.

A job very well done.

Upon receiving his award, Griffiths said: “It’s always nice to get recognition.

“The most important thing is the team. We’ve had a great season and there’s been so many people contributed to the success of the team.

“We set our stall out last June and it’s been a long, hard graft right through to the end of April, to the last ten minutes of the final game.”
