Weekend Preview

14th June 2013

Ahead of Skolars Kingstone Press Championship 1 fixture against University of Gloucestershire All Golds on Sunday we take a look at all the Skolars teams in action this weekend.

On Saturday two of Skolars junior teams are at home, playing on the Perth Road pitch at New River. The 12’s have a tough fixture as they host top of the table Medway whilst the 14’s visitors are Staines Titans, who are just one place ahead of Skolars in the league table.

Also playing on Saturday are the Skolars A team, who face a challenging fixture as they travel to take on Hammersmith Hills Hoists.

On Sunday both the Skolars 16’s and 19’s will face their University of Gloucestershire All Golds counterparts before the 1st team game kicks off. The 16’s game kicks off at 12.30pm on the main infield and the 19’s match, which kicks off at the same time, will take place on the Perth Road pitch, opposite the main stand.

For Skolars Championship 1 fixture  Skolars coach Joe Mbu could name an unchanged side after last week’s epic 55-52 win at Gateshead Thunder.

Mbu said: “Everyone came through OK from last week.” However, Mbu insists his side must be more focused for Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship One clash with Gloucestershire All Golds.

He said: “We had quite a few lapses of concentration against Gateshead and that’s been happening too much over the last few weeks. “When you lose focus in defence you get punished by decent teams, and that’s what’s been happening to us.

“If anything there is even more pressure on us this week after the amount of points we conceded at Gateshead. Gloucestershire will be looking at that and fancying their chances.”

All Golds coach Brad Hepi continues to be without Pat Evans, Joe McClean and captain Mike Stewart as he searches for a first league win of the season.

London Skolars v University of Gloucestershire All Golds kicks off at 3pm and tickets can be purchased on the day for £12 (adults) and £6 (concessions). Some great real ales will be available in the Olympic Suite and there will also be live post-match entertainment,  with singer Shoshana Burns.
