Spittle Leaves Lady Bay

Winger Jack Spittle has left Nottingham Rugby to join Doncaster Knights after scoring ten tries in 14 appearances for the Green and Whites last season.

A successful graduate of the Nottingham Trent University programme the exciting back will join fellow Championship opponents who finished ninth in the table last season, three places behind Nottingham before the campaigns premature end.

The 25-year-old’s most memorable moment came against Yorkshire Carnegie where he was awarded the Greene King IPA Championship try of the season after picking the ball up on his own goal line to run the length of the field against the bottom of the table team.

In all Spittle played 36 times for Nottingham scoring 18 tries and his efforts will sorely be missed at the Bay.

Another player out of the door (temporarily at least) is fellow-winger David Williams who moves to Leicester Tigers on loan after originally joining Nottingham from them in 2016.

Williams, an Academy Graduate at Leicester has scored 25 tries in 50 appearances for Nottingham since joining and has caught the eye of the Gallagher Premiership side who have asked him back as they still look to conclude their 2019/20 season.

Nottingham Head Coach Neil Fowkes stated prior to Williams move “I am pleased Davey has been given this loan opportunity with Leicester, and I hope he can contribute to their efforts in completing the 2019/2020 season.”
