Doncaster RLFC will play two matches at Castle Park next month, it has been confirmed.

The Dons will temporarily relocate to the home of Doncaster Knights in Armthorpe while pitch renovation work is carried out at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Doncaster’s Championship clash with London Broncos on Sunday, June 14, and their meeting with Whitehaven on Sunday, June 28, have both been switched to Castle Park.

Sheffield Eagles, who this season moved to the Keepmoat while their new stadium is built, will also play twice at the Armthorpe Road ground, against Whitehaven on June 13 and Workington on June 28.

The Dons beat Whitehaven in their first ever match at Castle Park last summer.

In previous seasons Doncaster had been forced to play away from home for the majority of June due to the renovation work at the Keepmoat.

However, the club were keen to avoid that scenario given there is now more to play for in the revamped RFL league structure.

Dons had hoped to be in contention for a top eight finish but the Castle Park games now look set to vital in their bid to avoid relegation to Championship One.

Tickets for all four games will go on sale from Castle Park on June 8. Knights season ticket holders can gain admission for a discounted rate.
