Skolars strengthen squad ahead of League 1 Shield

21st July 2017



London Skolars are delighted to announce a series of new signings that will join the squad next week.

Jacob Ogden and Rob Butler, both of whom have recently been promoted to the London Broncos first grade squad will have the opportunity to play competitive men’s rugby for the first time since impressing for the U19s throughout this year. Both Ogden and Butler join on loan until the end of the season.

The club have also resigned Ollie Purslow from UoG All Golds. Purslow who has played 99 times for the Skolars will be looking for his 100th appearance having returned to London.


Another familiar face that will be returning to New River is that of Smokie Junor. Junor has previously played for the Skolars but had his leg broken playing in Capital Challenge against Wigan Warriors in 2014. Smokie, who has impressed for the Academy team throughout this season is looking forward to stepping back up to the first grade squad.

Head Coach Jermaine Coleman commented on these signings and much more during his video interview which you can see here.
