London Skolars have completed the signing of winger Iliess Macani. The 24-year-old, who spent a short time on loan at Skolars last season, has put pen to paper on a year-long contract with the club ahead of the 2019 campaign.

Jermaine Coleman, London Skolars Head Coach, commented:

“We are really excited to welcome a player of Iliess’ quality to our ranks. He proved his ability while on loan last year and will add some real pace and threat to our attack. His professionalism and experience will help our group develop and improve.”

Hector McNeil, London Skolars CEO, added:

“This is an important signing for the club in preparation for an important 2019 season. Iliess is a player of real quality, proven Championship quality, and someone the fans will enjoy watching pull on the London Skolars shirt and take to the field. He is also a Skolars junior from Harringey which makes it extra special. We are all delighted to have got this deal over the line.”

Born in Tottenham, just a short journey from New River Stadium, Macani began his career with London Broncos, where he spent three years in the first team. He made 68 appearances and scored 26 tries during his time with the Broncos and enjoyed his first loan stint at Skolars in 2014.

Macani signed for Bradford Bulls in 2017 and in his only season with the Yorkshire club he scored 10 tries in 25 games. At the end of the campaign he moved to Sheffield Eagles, before joining the Skolars on loan for the second time in his career.

Four tries in five games for the Skolars ensured Macani caught the eye of Skolars Head Coach Jermaine Coleman, who has now secured the services of the winger for the entire 2019 campaign. Macani said:

“I’m delighted to be re-joining London Skolars and cannot wait to get started. I’ve missed London and felt I needed to come back home. It always feels right being in this city and I’m excited to be playing for my boyhood club once again.”
