CLUB STATEMENT

 

Skolars read the article published yesterday stating that the club has been bought with a view to moving the club to Philadelphia. This is not true. We can categorically state that we are massive advocates for Rugby League to have a strong and growing presence in London. We believe Skolars with over 23 years of history, 21 of which based on White Hart Lane, are an integral part to the games history and future in London and that we are committed to that vision. We are one of the only professional clubs with an award winning, multi layered minis to junior section and a renowned community programme in and around the borough of Haringey and we want to build on that for the future. Rather than thinking of moving from London we want to invest here and  take the club to the next level on and off the field.

 

Hector McNeil, Skolars CEO and majority owner had this to say “I moved to London in 1989 and was one of the founders of the club in 1995, coincidentally the year of the 100th anniversary of that historic meeting in the George Hotel in Huddersfield. Our George Hotel was the Chiswell Vaults in the heart of the City where we held our meeting to form the club. I played and coached for the club for over 10 years and now my 2 sons and daughter have or are playing for the club. My fellow directors and myself are huge believers in London RL and our place in that. Being a League 1 club in an M62 centric game is very hard work, but when we see a predominately London developed squad compete against the best in the league week in week out, and players who have come through the Skolars play, in World cups for England and other nations, in Super League and all the other divisions, we know we are doing lots right and are on the right path. Also seeing our under 16s dominate the London & South East summer competition this season shows that the production line is looking deep and strong. That makes it all worth it for the clubs Directors, staff, stakeholders, players, fans and everyone else associated with the club.

 

We are flattered by all the speculation, but I for one cant think of any better city or location in the world to have a rugby club. I have written as much over and over again bemoaning the games lack of investment in the capital over the years. As previously mentioned we are raising finance to take us to the next level and should have some news on that in the near term and we would also invite anyone else who is interested in buying into these exciting times to contact us.

FNL Programme Final

London Skolars ended a six-game losing streak in Betfred League One with a 20-6 victory at home to Keighley Cougars. Cheered on by their largest home crowd of the season, Skolars put in their best performance of the term to date in their annual ‘Friday Night Lights’ game.

London made a strong start to the game, scoring after five minutes when Neil Thorman put Sam Nash through a gap in the defence on the right, with Mike Bishay finishing off the move.

Two minutes later, Skolars went further ahead when Daymeric Pelo dummied before touching down on the left. Another attack down the right saw Nash score the hosts’ third try and London were only denied by a forward pass when they tried the same move on their next attack.

Omari Caro then got a hand to a pass to the wing and caught the ball on the second attempt, before racing 80 metres to the tryline for another Skolars try.

With heavy rain falling, London regularly kicked deep in the second half, ensuring Cougars had to play much of the game from their own half, whilst running into the wind. Both sides missed chances to score, with Pelo losing control of the ball with the tryline in sight, though at that stage all of the players were struggling to hold onto it.  Playing only his third game of the season, player-coach Jermaine Coleman kicked deep and Caro chased. However, the ball’s path diverted just before the tryline and as he altered his line, Caro collided with the posts, though fortunately avoided serious injury.

The travelling Keighley fans finally had something to cheer about when James Feather slipped past the defence, but a late rib injury to Davey Dixon may have further reduced Craig Lingard’s squad.

Neil Thorman kicked a late penalty to round off a happy evening for his side.

It was a welcome return to winning ways for Skolars, whose previous success had come on June 30 away to West Wales Raiders.

And London will hope to add to that win over Keighley by picking up another success when they vist Hunslet on Sunday.
