Many congratulations to Eljay, Malachi and Esther

Many congratulations go out this weekend to Malachi Boakye-Yiadom, Eljay Morris and Esther Atunrase as the initial rosters for the England U16 National Squad and U15 National Development Programme are announced by Basketball England. The announcement came this week and we are really proud of all 3 players. We wish them continued success as they follow this pathway to hopeful final selection for the Great Britain team that will go to the European Championships in 2017.

Selection took place following the U15 boys and girls Regional Development Tournament held at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester on the 17 / 18 September. During the weekend 120 boys from each of the 10 Basketball England regions and 108 girls from 9 Basketball England regions took part and all players were observed and assessed. 38 boys and 34 girls have been selected for the England squads and they will take part in their first national camp in Manchester in December.
