Poly Ollies Scholarship

The 'Poly Ollies' were Leeds Polytechnic's first ever rugby union team

The scholarship was set up by Tony Horsfall, the captain of the 'Poly Ollies'. The team were the first Leeds Polytechnic team to play against the University of Leeds in 1976, besting them on that historic occasion.

The scholarship is awarded to one first year student each year who is studying at the Carnegie School of Sport.  The student will have excelled in their entry qualifications and also be the first in their family to attend university.
