London Skolars Reserves (U20’s Academy)

In 2018, London Skolars introduced the Reserve side to their development pathway. The aim of the squad is to bring together the players who are entering the Senior Development stage of their rugby. As an organisation the aims for our Reserve Grade are to offer :

  • Those players who are just out of U16’s Junior Rugby  an opportunity for genuine U18’s Fixtures against other London Clubs, plus various Representative sides.
  • Those who are at the right stage of their personal development there will be an opportunity to be selected for the London Skolars U20’s side who will play in the London Development League.
  • Those who are at the more senior end of their development, an opportunity to compete against other League One Reserve Sides, in a squad that will include 1st Team Squad players. These matches will be held as Curtain Raiser’s before League One Fixtures.

The focus for this Squad will be very much on development and individual progression, through forming a cohesive team unit. We hope that a number of players in this squad will eventually go on to be offered a 1st Team Contract here.

The squad is headed up by Nick Padgett, and he will be assisted by Nooroa Ogden. Both have lots of experience at this level and will be working closely with 1st Team Staff to ensure there is an evident parallel between the 1st team and the Reserves.

Any talented and ambitious Rugby League players interested in being offered an opportunity to train with the London Skolars Reserve Grade are welcome to email the Club quoting ‘Reserve Grade Opportunity’ via
