THE PERFECT FRIDAY NIGHT OUT IS BACK!

• FNL to be played 28th August on eve of Carnegie Challenge Cup Final
• Skolars aiming for a record attendance of 2000 spectators
• Skolars to launch ‘Skolars are my second club!’ campaign


Friday 28th August at 6.30 pm will see the London Skolars 2009 regular season conclude with the traditional precursor to the Carnegie Challenge Cup Wembley Final, Friday Night Lights! In a repeat of the 2008 event, the Skolars will once again meet Keighley Cougars and are hoping to avenge the narrow 14-18 loss they suffered.

The event has proved popular with the Rugby League masses travelling to the capital for the game’s showpiece occasion. With a sell out attendance of 1,427 for the 2008 event, the club are going all out to top that and attract a second consecutive club record crowd and have expanded capacity to 2000 with the aim to sell out. The Skolars will be launching their “Skolars are my second club” campaign.

Also included on the day will be the finals of the Skolars ‘Urban Rugby’ programme, Estate of Origin! With a steel band, Skolars girls, Barbeque, fan games and competitions and the always popular real ale festival it promises to be the biggest and best yet.

Skolars chairman Hector McNeil commented, “Friday Night Lights continues to go from strength to strength and with the invention of the Skolars staff they’re coming up with some really fun and exciting initiatives for the event itself. We’re confident it’ll be another sell out and are looking forward to opening up both sides of our ground for the first time.”

Skolars Community Manager and first team captain Paul Thorman said, “The Urban Rugby Estate of Origin finals series will provide an opportunity for local children to become part of Rugby League’s biggest weekend of the year. As a squad we’re looking to go one better than last year’s narrow loss and get over Keighley.”

Advance bookings are £10 and entrance on the night is £12, concessions £6.
