London Scottish v Richmond Students match confirmed for New Year’s Eve

20th December 2016

The annual and highly anticipated U21 students game once again takes place on New Year’s Eve between neighbours and rivals Richmond RFC and London Scottish!

It is the turn of the Scots to host this year, and if last year's fixture is anything to go by it should be a thrilling match. 

The London Scottish Rampant Lions won the Skinner Cup in 2015 in dramatic fashion with a kick by Will Kelly that hit the uprights, then the crossbar to finally just make it over and seal the first win in many years.

The Scots came close the year before in 2014 but a brilliant last minute score by Richmond denied the young Rampant Lions.

The match will kick off at 13:00 and is a great way to start your New Year celebrations! With another year gone and a new one starting, come and support the two clubs and their academy players once again.

The bar will be open from midday, serving two great curries which will be available from the cafe. Niall Skinner will be attending to present the cup to the winners!

13:00 KO, Pitch Four, Richmond Athletic Ground

Please Note: The match is on pitch four instead of the main pitch due to the First XV fixture against Rotherham Titans on New Year's Day at 14:00.
