London Scottish can today confirm their pre-season schedule ahead of the 16/17 campaign.

The Scots will travel to Well Hall to play against Blackheath on Saturday 13th August at 15:00 in their first match, where they will take on the National One outfit. 

Entry to this match will be free to all supporters, and will be the the first chance to see our new signings in action as preparations continue for the new Greene King IPA Championship season. 

The second fixture then sees Scottish head in to London to take on the 2015/16 Aviva Premiership and European Champions Cup winners Saracens at the HAC. 

This match will take place on Thursday 25th August at 18:15, and the following weekend the Scots will start their Championship season away at Nottingham. 

Ticket information for the game against Saracens will be published soon. 

Head Coach Peter Richards says that these matches will be the ideal preparation for the upcoming season.

“I’m sure that these matches will allow us to give the squad adequate game time as we build up to the new season.”

He added: “Blackheath are an exciting National One team who will provide some tough competition and we also looking forward to facing Mike Friday again.

Saracens will be a huge challenge and a chance for our players to take on some of the best players in rugby. We couldn’t have picked a harder game but it will be fantastic for everyone involved and a great experience which we are all excited about.”
