London Skolars hall of fame formed

We are now less than 2 weeks away from the London Skolars 20th Anniversary Celebration. As part of the evening the club board has decided to inaugurate a former Skolar into the London Skolars Hall of Fame on the evening.

Please see below the 5 nominees and a brief summary of their considerable contribution to the London Skolars RL over the last 20 years. They truly have represented the club with honour and distinction over our rich history.

The club would like you all to provide a 3-2-1 vote for your top 3 nominations out of the 5 names listed below as follows: 3 votes for your top nomination, 2 votes for your 2nd nomination, 1 vote for your 3rd nomination. Can you please return your 3-2-1 nomination in email to by no later than close of business on Monday 2nd November. The votes will be tallied and form the basis for selecting the inaugural Hall of Fame inductee.

Austen Aggrey
The leading try scorer of the professional era, Austen joined the club part way through 2004 and played 179 games over the next 8 years. He scored the majority of his 57 tries on the wing, where his tough running style made him a difficult man to stop.

Bobby Brown
One of the regulars in the National Conference League days, Bobby started playing for the Skolars at an age when most players would be hanging up their boots, but the threequarter belied his years and pace and power. After his pro debut at 41, he moved into the junior section, where he was instrumental in passing on his knowledge for a decade.

Gareth Honor
Gareth joined the club midway through the 2003 season, going on to play 198 games over 9 seasons, more first team games for the club than any other player. As well as being the fulcrum of many of any attacking move, Gareth scored 33 tries and 1 drop goal.

Charlie Oyebade
Oybade joined the club in 1995 soon after its inception. Records of try scorers in the early days aren’t complete, but Charlie must have scored close to 100 tries for the first team, including 7 in one London League game against Ipswich Rhinos. The pro era came a little too late in his career and 3 tries in 25 games does not do justice to his weaving running skills on the wing. Charlie also contributed to the club at reserve level including London League wins with the ‘A” team and Haringey Hornets.

Paul Thorman
Paul joined the club in 2007 going onto top the club’s goal scoring chart for an unparalleled 4 consecutive seasons. Rarely missing a game, the half-back kicked 223 goals and scored 11 tries and created countless others in 107 appearances. Paul’s development work also saw a period of strong progress in the junior sides.

London Skolars are pleased to announce that they have received a second batch of tickets for the England vs New Zealand test match being played at the Olympic park.

The match that takes place on Saturday 6th of November is sure to be an entertaining affair with everything on the line. Being the second match of the three match series, a second loss for either team would condemn them to defeat over all.

The tickets we have received are Category 2, which are some of the best seats in the stadium. This should allow you prime viewing to witness some of the greatest talents such as Roger Tuivasa Sheck and Kallum Watkins do their thing. If this wasn’t tempting enough, the club are able to offer the tickets at a discounted rate with adult tickets usually costing £37 on sale for just £27.

So make sure to visit the club shop and secure your place for the big event before it’s too late!

London Skolars joined a host of other London Rugby League clubs at the Palace of Westminster this week to showcase the breadth of the sport in and around the capital.

Skolars were joined by other clubs, the London Foundation, South East MP’s and Members of the Parliamentary Rugby League Group at the reception to celebrate the game.

Matt Cuss, Skolars Community Development Manager, said: ‘It was a fantastic event in such a unique venue, it was a great chance to meet up with the other clubs in London and to chat about all things Rugby League. We work closely with the London Rugby League Foundation and it was great to see the full impact of the work that they are doing across the capital.’

Cuss continued ‘it was also a really great opportunity for many of the clubs to meet their MP’s and I had a great discussion with Catherine West who is the MP for Hornsey and Wood Green. She was extremely interested in the work that we are doing and was particularly passionate about our school work that we are currently delivering in partnership with the London Rugby League Foundation. Being an Australian, sport and Rugby League in particular has always played a large part in her life and hopefully we will be honoured by her presence at a few of our games and events throughout the course of the season.’

Catherine West, the club’s local Member of Parliament said “it is always a pleasure to welcome constituents to Parliament.  I am delighted volunteers from London Skolars were able to visit the Palace of Westminster, celebrate rugby league, and be thanked for their hard work by the London Rugby League Foundation.  The club does excellent work in the local community, and I look forward to supporting them as they continue to grow.  I would encourage any of my colleagues with rugby league clubs in their constituencies to support the sport.”

Cuss echoed this ‘events like these do so much for the progression of Rugby League in London, support for the game and Skolars in particular from such high profile individuals like our Local MP and the rest of the Parliamentary Rugby League group is an invaluable resource in our on-going plans to continue to develop our club and grow Rugby League even further throughout North London.’
