I know we're no longer a National League club, but here's an article from the Telegraph about London Welsh's plans as the new season begins.  The target is four promotions in five years, to bring us back to LSE Premiership level.

Hope you have a thoroughly good time coming back up through the leagues. We at London Scottish certainly did. You will meet some great rugby people.

Good luck. Rugby Lions are well on their way back, and i'm sure Welsh can do it too.
Have fun.

I hope London Welsh do come back up, lucky they had the amateur team in the leagues to stop a fall to the very bottom.

Have to echo these thoughts, going back to basics, lot of fun and a different perspective. We enjoyed it certainly. Best of luck, hope to see you guys back soon as you can.

Important win for LW today at Bank of England. 
Bank still top on 35, LW on 34, Royston on 33 - all won 7 lost 1.

Still 14 games to go.

I need to check how many promotion places, I think it is two up to London 3 NW - if so one of these three sides will miss out.

Yes, two go up. Fantastic game at BoE yesterday, won with the last kick of the game. Such an amazing atmosphere around the club at the moment, it must be quite intimidating for opposition sides and really uplifting for our boys playing in front of such big, passionate, vocal crowds every week. Over 700 at home to Wasps last week, and 200+ fans at Roehampton yesterday. Not bad for level nine!

Great to hear LW Doing well, hopefully not too long till we get our exile derby back.
 
On another note. Does anyone know if the LW Griffins are still running.

Next season, and all future seasons, will see matches with LW at ODP be like gold dust as every club below the national leagues will want to have a go at playing them.

They played Moseley in September, and I read that the full fixture list was still to be confirmed, but was likely to include Ealing , Richmond & London Scottish.  I don't know whether that's been finalised.
