Overview

The mercurial talent that is Adam Knight, has now been with us at Lucs for three seasons, having joined us in the summer of 2013, from our neighbours down the road at Wyeside. After a solid first season at the club, where he featured fairly regularly for the 1st XV, Knighty had an excellent season last year, in helping the side avoid relegation, featuring prominently throughout he finished with a try-scoring record of 1 in 3, which was good going in a team that struggled at times. This year, as of yet, he has not quite managed to get back into that groove, thanks to an ACL injury early in the season and then several strains and knocks since then. Signs are though Adam has been starting to work his way back into some form within the Securcom 2nd XV and it would not be a surprise to see him contribute to the 1st XV’s campaign before this season is out.
Having played at various clubs during his career, Knighty brings a certain level of maturity and a different perception to the playing group at Mortimer Park. His attitudes to challenge the norm and strive for improvement are good characteristics to go alongside his obvious physical attributes of size and speed. If we can keep the physical specimen fit and get him to carry the ball in two hands, then Knighty has got plenty to contribute to this playing group over the coming years.
Off the field, what an enigma he is! A very talented journalist who some may recall wrote a fantastic piece about the club in the final weeks of last season. Sadly for him, Herefordshire is not a hotbed for journalism and so Knighty combines this work with moonlighting as a cocktail mixer at a bar in Hereford, as well as having done various bits of coaching for the club within our school’s programme in the past. Known as Geez and sporting a top-knot for a hair-do (very gutsy in these parts!), Knighty likes to think of himself as a bit of a city boy stranded out in deepest, darkest Herefordshire. Whatever image he portrays we are glad to have him on board, and look forward to seeing him in action over the coming years.
