“I am really looking forward to coming down to London to play for Joe Mbu’s Skolars team and I firmly believe I can make a difference. Like always you will get 100% from me, which is what I have always given no matter which team I have had the pleasure to play for throughout my career.” said Raynor

State of Mind would like to wish Gareth all the very best and the future looks great for the Skolars after the great performance against North Wales at the weekend
