London Skolars lost a closely fought contest 20-22 in an excellent contest at New River Stadium today.  The Skolars went ahead with a penalty after 20 minutes before York forced their way over for a try to lead 10-2 at the break.

The second half saw Vinny Finnigan collect a grubber kick to score under the posts followed by a superb show of craft by Neil Thorman and Mike Bishay who screeched over 40 metres to the corner.

York ran out eventual winners but many in the stadium left with vast respect and plaudits for the men from New River.

Commenting on the fixture, former Bradford Bulls marketing man and current Skolars General Manager, Simon Fox, said:

“Hosting the Bradford Bulls will be an iconic moment for us as a club and one we will fully embrace. Irrespective of League tables or position, they are one of the cornerstones of the modern game of rugby league and their reputation as a true sporting great is unparalleled. 
“Not only did they create the blueprint for the summer game, they were one of the founding clubs to drive their whole brand through community integration. It is that magical touch of ‘knowing who you are’ that makes them unique across the sport. 
“Our fans will have the honour of seeing the Bulls live at New River Stadium on Saturday 28th July and we would love the magnificent Bulls supporters base, who’ve done it tough in recent years, to come and enjoy a great event in the capital. We welcome them with open arms and hope they’ll enjoy a fabulous day with us.” 


There are a range of activities planned for the day including a live band, street food stalls and a craft ale bar. In addition the Skolars will also be hosting a junior game on the main pitch from 12.45pm.

London Skolars General Manager, Simon Fox, said:

“The country is awash with sporting fever at the moment with both the World Cup and Wimbledon capturing the nations attention. We’ve also seen a spike in interest for Skolars home games and recently welcomed visitors from Michigan, USA for their first ever game of rugby league anywhere in the world.

“The visit of York provides another opportunity for people across the south east, and indeed the globe, to catch some live action this weekend and dovetail with the rest of the sporting action. We will also be relaying all the fun from other events in the Skolars Clubhouse from midday along with great food and drinks deals. It promises to be fabulous weekend of British sport.”

Skolars General Manager, Simon Fox, said:

“The whole country is behind the great spirit and wave of optimism that is following this England World Cup journey. It is only right we allow sports fans and the public at large to enjoy that eve further. We felt the best way to do this whilst enjoying the Skolars home game against Coventry is by bringing the kick off forward to provide a huge sporting double header. I’d also like to thank Coventry Bears who have been very kind in agreeing to this; we look forward to welcoming them to New River Stadium on Saturday.”

The Skolars Clubhouse will be open from 11.30am with great drink and food deals on offer. The live screening of England v Sweden will be shown on at 3pm and happy hour at 4pm-5pm.
