Skolars seek biggest ever crowd

Skolars hope to attract their biggest ever crowd to mark what could be long-serving hooker Gareth Honor‘s final game for the club.

Honor is believed to be considering retiring at the end of the season, and his team-mates are desperate to give him the send off he deserves against third-placed Keighley.

London’s annual ‘Friday Night Lights’ fixture has developed into one of the highlights of the Co-operative Championship One season, and Cougars coach Jason Demetriou admits his side face a genuine challenge.

Demetriou said: “It’s a big game for London. It’s their last game of the season, and they’ll want to finish on a high. We’ve got to match their enthusiasm.”

He added: “They work hard for each other and use their narrow pitch well. Last time we made this trip we didn’t use the size of the pitch as we should have done, but we’ll try to learn some lessons from that for Friday night.”

Luke Helliwell is Keighley’s only absentee as he battles to recover from a recent ankle problem.
