London Broncos sign nine of the last season's U16 Scholarship Scheme to continue their progression towards the Super League.

Joe Keyes, Stand off (Medway Dragons + Brentwood Eels)
Elliott Barnes, Prop (Medway Dragons)
Harry Griffiths, Centre (Elmbridge Eagles)
Richard Harris, Full Back (Medway Dragons)
Arnie Carter, Hooker (Staines Titans)
Toby Everett, Back Row (Greenwich Admirals)
Dapo Awofolu, Wing (Medway Dragons + Brentwood Eels)
Olly Toms, Back Row (Hemel Hempstead Stags)
Kain Monks, Loose Forward (Staines Titans)

Joe Keyes has for the past two seasons been part of the England Youth program and scored a 60m try in their victory over Wales in the Summer. With Richard Harris, Harry Griffiths and Toby Everett towering already at a minimum height of 6ft 3 offering real physical presence.

Olly Toms a wide running back rower is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Hemel old boys Kieran Dixon and Dan Sarginson. Arnie Carter and Kain Monks as well as playing for Staines both attended Feltham Community College which has been a real hotbed for Rugby League with Olsi Krasniqi currently representing them in first grade.

Elliott Barnes and Dapo Awofolu were part of Medway's successful London Junior League U16 team which won both the Challenge cup and Grand Final.

Head of Youth Phil Jones said: "These lads are a really exciting group and some of them attracted great interest from clubs in the North.
"It is a great credit to themselves, their Parents and the London Junior League Clubs the level of performance they are already at. It also reflects well on the investment the Club and David Hughes has made in the Scholarship program. However all the boys know this is the start of the next part of a really tough journey which will lead some of them to first grade."
