Young Skolar Stars For England Students

13th June 2012

London Skolars player Dion Chapman celebrated his selection for the England Students Four Nations Squad by scoring a try and claiming the man of the match award in England’s impressive 58-12 victory over Ireland students in Wrexham.

Dion, who is studying for an NVQ apprenticeship in sport at Southgate College, began playing at a young age thanks to one of the London Skolars community coaches coming to his North London school and introducing the pupils to the game.

At the age of 11 he was invited down to the Skolars club and has been here ever since, slotting in at either centre, back row or prop. He signed a first team contract with the club at the start of the season and has already featured for the first team, playing against London Broncos and Toulouse Olympique.

England face Scotland tonight and finish the tournament off with a clash against Wales Students on Friday.

Everyone at Skolars are delighted with Dion’s progress and wish him every success for the remainder of the tournament.
