Skolars sign former Warrington Wolves academy player

15th November 2016

London Skolars have signed 22 year old Jake Melling to join the first team squad for the 2017 campaign.

Jake had previously played rugby league in his home town of Wigan for Shevington Sharks and Wigan St Pats. He moved on to play for the Warrington Wolves academy for a further three years. Being a utility back, his preferred position is Centre but is capable of playing in any back position. Jake also benefits from his time as an England touch rugby international having played in European tournaments as well as in the World Cup in Australia in 2015.

Speaking on signing for Skolars, Jake said “I’m excited by the challenge of coming to play in London. I’ve had a tour of the facilities and am really looking forward to getting involved with pre-season training.” Club General Manager welcomed Jake to the club and said “we’re excited to have Jake at the club, he’ll also be joining the staff team as our new Corporate Sales Executive giving him a really good understanding of the club and its partners”.
