The London Knights are saddened to announce the passing of Don Brankley.
Affectionately nicknamed “Branks”, Brankley served as a member of the London Knights training staff for 38 years. He first started with the Knights in 1970, just five years after the start of the London franchise, and was a part of the organization until the end of the 2007-2008 season.
Branks was a member of the 2005 MasterCard Memorial Cup Championship team. The long-term team trainer took care of hundreds of Knights alumni throughout his tenure with the franchise.
Branks will always be remembered at Budweiser Gardens as a banner signifying his commitment and passion towards the Knights hangs from the rafters.
The London Knights would like to send its sincerest condolences to the Brankley family at this time.
