The Belfast Knights 2023 Schedule is out, with the first game away to the newly promoted Westmeath Minotaurs in Mullingar. Followed by a home game at Malone RFC against the Shamrock Bowl runner ups, the Dublin Rebels.
As always the Belfast Knights are looking for new players of all shapes, sizes and abilities, if you are interested please reach out and join us on Sundays at 10am at Malone RFC, Belfast.
The Belfast Knights hosted the Derry/Donegal Vipers and Belfast Trojans on Sunday 25th September at Malone RFC.
The first game was against the city rivals, Belfast Trojans. After the nerves settled the young Knights got into the game with a defence holding strong on multiple drives.
Building on the momentum from the earlier game the Belfast held the vipers to no score.
The final scores:
Knights 10 – 8 Trojans
Knights 12 – 0 Vipers
On Friday 2nd September, after completing the first full season in 3 years the Belfast Knights came together to reflect on this years achievements.
The 2022 season had its ups and down for the Knights, one thing that was consistent was the commitment to the game and the club.
