London Skolars To Host Open Under 19 Training Session

26th March 2014

Following on from the U19’s squad treble winning 2013 season, London Skolars are looking to strengthen this particular age group by hosting an open training session this coming Saturday 29th March at New River Stadium. As the London Junior League will not be running an U19’s competition this year, a number of southern teams have joined together to form a Championship One Southern U19 League. This league will give youngsters in the London area who are still eligible for the U19 age grade an opportunity to continue to play against players of their own age group in what should be a very competitive competition.

Many of London Skolars U19 side from last season have earned themselves contracts with the first team Squad for 2014. Joe Mbu and his First Team staff see this age group as a very important stage in a player’s development, Assistant Coach Marcus Tobin commented ‘the fact that we now have a number of last season’s U19’s involved in the first team set up is a testament to the pathway that we have been working hard to create here at Skolars, players such as Judd and Michael Greenhalgh are now coming through and making a great impression at First Team level.

The Championship One U19 fixtures are split into 5 home and 5 away fixtures, against Kingstone Press Championship One opponents Gloucestershire All Golds, Oxford RL, South Wales Scorpions and Hemel Stags. The way the fixtures are structured will still give those players from other clubs in the London area the chance to represent their open – age side on most weekends.

The training session will run on this Saturday 29th March at White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre, N22 5QW. The session will begin with a player and staff meet at 11am followed by a training session which will run until 1pm.
