20th Anniversary Celebration Tickets Now Available

Following feedback from fans, current and past players the Skolars board has decided to change arrangements for our 20th Anniversary Celebration dinner and make it inclusive and accessible to all people involved with the club over the last 20 years. The celebratory event will still take place on Friday the 6th November at the Wesley in Euston with a 2 course hot buffet and welcome drink at a great price of only £30 (previously £55). Taking place on the evening prior to the England vs New Zealand second test at the Olympic Park, this will be a chance for fans, past players, directors and RL fans to make a weekend of it and come together to celebrate the history, passion and future of the London Skolars RLFC.

London Skolars were founded during the Centenary Season of the Rugby Football League in 1995, initially created for post-university graduates in London. After achieving initial success within the London League, the club became one of the founding members of the Southern Conference in 1997.

In 2003 the club’s application to join the National Leagues was accepted, the first club in 80 years to make the jump from the amateur ranks to the professional leagues.

The evening will be quite informal allowing Skolars people to socialise with past and present players and fans and tell stories from both on and off the pitch. A guest speaker will be announced in the coming weeks and the club will inaugurate someone into the Skolars Hall of Fame.

Ticket price

£30

For this great price you receive a two course buffet and welcome drink with a cash bar on throughout the evening.

Dress code – Smart Casual

7.30 arrival for an 8pm sit-down. The Wesley hotel bar will open from 7pm – 81-103, Euston Street London, NW1 2EZ

The Skolars strong off-season recruitment drive has continued with the re-signing of two Will’s, Will Fairhurst and Will Martin.  Both players impressed with consistent performances when they took to the field in 2015.

Will Martin was a strong force at the back end of the season and became an extremely reliable member of the team at prop. Always one to put his hand up for the hard carries and very rarely missing tackles he has made 7 appearances, crossing the try line twice along the way.

Will Fairhurst came to Skolars as a bit of an unknown. Advancing through the Warrington academy system and then on to Australia where he consistently played Queensland Cup for Tweet Head Seagulls, it was obvious Will had talent. He proved that talent this year making 9 appearances at the start of the season. Unfortunately for him he has a shocking run of injuries in the 2nd half of the season. He first suffered a medial ligament tear after playing 9 early season games and subsequently missed a large portion of the summer after keyhole surgery to repair the damage. Upon making his return on the annual Friday Night Lights game vs North Wales he was cruelly struck down with a rupture of the achilles, requiring more surgery and putting him out for the remainder of the season. We all wish him well for the long rehab journey and look forward to seeing him fit and healthy and playing for the Skolars in 2016.

As the 2015 Academic year begins the only full-time College Rugby League Academy in London based at Barnet and Southgate College have come back into training ahead of their upcoming season. Having received national accreditation ahead of the upcoming season through becoming an RFL Category 3 Academy, it is hoped a relaunched stand-alone Rugby League Academy will provide young people in London the opportunity to continue their playing development outside of the London Junior League set up.

Gaining Category 3 status recognises the elite pathway and structures in place at the College which has run a dual-code programme with Saracens Foundation for the past few years and constitutes a huge step forward for both the Academy and the game in London. The accreditation criteria looks at a mix of coaching standard, resources and the pathway in which the programme fits and the College passed with flying colours thanks to its access to top class facilities and links to professional routes. Since its inception, the Academy has had huge successes developing 3 England College Players, 3 Student Internationals, and 1 former Super-League player and current Championship player in the shape of London Bronco winger Iliess Macani. The Academy also has a link with ourselves here at London Skolars, with 4 former Barnet and Southgate College players currently contracted to the First Team.

Alongside the accreditation the Academy this year have promoted for the first time within the London Junior League system and we are delighted to welcome a number of new players onto the programme, 2 stand-out new-comers include Brixton Bulls player Julius Banks and London Skolars Junior Ben Woodward. Julius comes to us with great pedigree from Brixton Bulls and his time spent on the scholarship programme at London Broncos. We look forward to seeing Julius develop during his time with us. Another exciting new addition this year is hard-running prop Ben Woodward. Ben is a current London Skolars U17 player and has joined us from Enfield Grammar school, Ben is highly thought of by the coaches at London Skolars and again we are excited by his potential. Both players will add quality to what is an already exciting programme and as the promotion of the Academy gathers momentum we look forward to welcoming more London Junior League players to Barnet and Southgate College.

The current squad will now begin an extensive training programme, which includes Strength & Conditioning Sessions led by College staff and on field sessions led by Head Coach Matt Cuss, in preparations for their first fixture in November.

Anyone interested in the College Academy is invited to contact James Edgerley on:
