Young Skolar Gets to Wembley

29th August 2012

Young Skolar Alex Pentecost (third player from right) got his feet on the hallowed turf at Wembley during Saturday’s Carnegie Challenge Cup Final. His cup winning victory lap will have to wait however as Alex was one of 16 Liontrust London Junior League players to feature as a ball boy at Rugby League’s showpiece occasion.

Alex is part of the Skolars’ under 14 age group and was selected from 5 Skolars that were nominated by the club on Ian Ramsdale’s BBC London 94.9 London Rugby League Show. Alex, who plays hooker, has played with the club for 2 seasons and is the son of the 2012 Skolars Clubman of the Year, Fred Pentecost.

Community Manager Paul Thorman said, “It was a wonderful honour for Alex to feature as a ball boy for the Challenge Cup Final. It was a fitting reward for him given his performance over the last two years at the club and I’m sure he will remember the occasion forever.”
