Cornwall travel to London Skolars this coming Saturday – Patrick Tod

Cornwall RLFC travel to the capital this coming Saturday as the Choughs face London Skolars at the New River Stadium.

The Ground

The Skolars’ home base, which is also known as the White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre, is situated in Haringey, North London. The ground is only a short walk from the recently constructed Tottenham Hotspur stadium, home of the Premier League football side Tottenham Hotspur.

Formed back in 1995 as Student Rugby League Old Boys before changing their name to London Skolars in 1997, the side have always called the New River Stadium home.

Accepted into rugby league’s professional ranks in 2003, the Solars also share their stadium with a number of other local sporting entities. Enfield and Haringey Athletics Club, Wood Green Weightlifting Club, Park View FC, Harringey Rhinos RFC and Harringey Cycling Club.

The New River Stadium pitch is an artificial 4G surface similar to the pitch that Cornwall experienced when they played at the Vestacare Stadium, home of Oldham Rougyeds, back in April.
