The victory seals the Knights status at the top of the league as well as confirming their promotion to Division 1 for next season.

This success follows the Knights triumph in the Transpennine cup and Head Coach Daniel Plant is delighted that the club have kept their good form flowing throughout a busy period of the season:

“The lads have had to play a lot of games recently but their strength has shown through. They’ve delivered some fantastic results recently but this one was the sweetest.

“Winning the league is a huge achievement, one we all knew we could deliver but also shows the tremendous progress we have made as a club over the past 12 months.”

The Knights will complete their league fixtures this Friday against the Clifton Cobras who they already know they will also face in the Play-offs. Plant added:

“Clifton will be a tough game, they bring a strong and fast side with a lot of talent and we can’t take them lightly. Knowing we have them in the play-offs means we have to make an impression with a professional performance in this game as well.”

The Knights face off at 7pm Friday at simply skate arena, with the Sheffield Lancers also facing Clifton at 9-30 the same night.
