Bradley and Davies Sign For Skolars

16th December 2013

As London Skolars head coach Joe Mbu continues to assemble his squad for the 2014 campaign the club are delighted to announce the addition of two more quality signings.

Half-back Matt Bradley joins from Championship 1 side University of Gloucester All Golds having made 14 appearances for the them in 2013, in which he kicked an impressive 29 goals.

Bradley, who has gained representative honours for England Students Rugby League and England Colleges (Rugby Union), was initially named in the Italian training Squad for the Rugby League World Cup. He played for the Italian side in the European Shield game against Russia.

Talking about his move to London Bradley (pictured above with Joe Mbu) had this to say: “I’ve had three very enjoyable years at Gloucester and playing week in week out in Championship 1 was a great experience for me. The chance to move to London and play for Skolars was too good an opportunity to turn down and I have been very impressed with Joe Mbu’s plans for the team. I can’t wait to get started.”

Joining Bradley at Skolars is another outstanding young half back-talent, Courtney Davies, who joins from South Wales Scorpions. Davies (19) was captain of Wales under 18s in 2012. He started his Rugby League at Neath Port Talbot Steelers in their junior set-up and went on to play for the old Celtic Crusaders and then the WRL run Scorpions Academy. He made his senior debut for Scorpions in the 2012 season.

Skolars head coach Mbu is understandably delighted with the two latest additions to his squad: “Whilst we have lost a couple of key players from last year I have had the opportunity to bring in two very talented young players who already have experience playing in our league. I believe they will prove to be very valuable additions to the squad. I was impressed by their desire to not only relocate to London but to improve as players. I believe I can offer them that platform.”
