Match Preview: Knottingley Raiders @ Birmingham Bulls

The start of the 2018 BAFA season sees the Raiders make their first visit to the midlands to face the relegated Birmingham Bulls. Hot favourites to with Division 2 North, Birmingham Bulls, will be looking to make a strong start to their battle back to Division 1.

Coming off of a losing season in their debut year in BAFA, Raiders have a point to prove. With coaching and personnel changes over the off-season, Marsh Lane is buzzing with anticipation to get back out on the field and play some hard-hitting football.

Raiders appoint Michael Fox as Defensive Coordinator

Raiders appoint Michael Fox as Defensive Coordinator

The Knottingley Raiders committee are please to announce the appointment of Michael Fox as our Defensive Coordinator. After a 30+ year love affair with american football, after first seeing Manchester Spartans play ball in 1984, Michael answered the call for our search for a DC.

Having seen Knottingley play in their debut season in BAFA National Leagues, Michael was keen to work with the club and offered his services on a short-term trial basis. Having impressed both players and coaches alike, Michael has accepted the position of DC and is keen to make an impact this year in the NFC 2 South.

We look forward to watching our defense develop under his guidance.

Match Preview: Morecambe Bay Storm @ Knottingley Raiders

Morecambe Bay Storm visit Marsh Lane for the final game for both teams in the 2017 NFC 2 Central. The Raiders and Storm have had differing fortunes for their rookie seasons in the BAFA National Leagues. Whilst one made a name for themselves in their associate campaign in 2016, the other has gone on to have a successful debut season, aiming to finish 2017 with a winning record.

Knottingley played 7 associate fixtures in 2016, displaying a dominant style of play, averaging over 50 points per game. The only loss coming from divisional rivals Leeds Bobcats: a hard fought 46-40 loss. However, whilst the Raiders have only one win under their belt in 2017, a 56-16 drubbing over Northumberland Lightning, Morecambe have gone on to a 5-4 season thus far. Morecambe beat the Raiders last time out and will be heading to Marsh Lane looking for their 6th win of the season, though Knottingley will certainly be looking to spoil the party and take the W to end their 2017 campaign.
