Adam Kwasnicki becomes most capped London Scot of professional era

27th January 2016

Adam Kwasnicki became the most-capped London Scottish player in the professional era after making his 130th appearance for the club in the win over Munster ‘A’ last weekend.

The hooker is the longest-serving member of the current playing squad, and since joining from Barking in 2010, Kwasnicki has been a crucial part of the London Scottish side.

 Last season he became just the third London Scot to reach the century milestone since the club's ‘Incredible Journey’ began in 1999.

The 29-year-old follows in the footsteps of former London Scots Colman McCarthy and Matt Johnson in reaching 100 caps. Mark Bright also achieved the feat in September 2015.

Kwasnicki said: “It’s a great feeling to reach this milestone by overtaking some great club men like Matt Johnson and Coleman McCarthy.”

He added: “I have loved pulling on the shirt alongside my teammates for such an historic club and feel lucky to have been able to do that so many times in my six seasons at the club.”

The club captain also praised the fans at the Athletic Ground: “I appreciate all the great support and hope I can continue to work hard for the jersey, my teammates and the supporters.”

Club President Rod Lynch paid tribute to the landmark: “This is a towering achievement from the Club Captain who is one of the most well known and popular figures in the squad.”
