Esher Rugby is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement in principle for Championship club London Scottish to play their first XV matches at Molesey Road from September 2021. The plan is for the arrangement to last for two seasons, with an option to continue for a further two. London Scottish have ground-shared with Richmond for more than a century at the Athletic Ground - a link that will finish at the end of the forthcoming season
Esher president Ross Howard has described the proposal as 'a boost for the game of rugby' in Esher and the surrounding area
'At a time when the sport is facing a whole raft of challenges, it will be great to be able to offer the area a high quality rugby match to watch just about every weekend of the season. London Scottish have a rich history and we are sure they will enjoy using our facilities at Esher before they finally find a home of their own'
Members will be kept updated at regular intervals about the more detailed planning surrounding the link-up.We intend to have an FAQ available on the website shortly, relating to some of the more obvious issues that will arise
