U14s Final Fours – Manchester

A fantastic well done to the entire U14’s squad who represented the club so well in both their semi final and finals games over the National Final Fours Weekend held in Manchester on 30th April and 1st May.

The team played a tense and exciting game against Mansfield Giants at the Amechi Centre on the Saturday afternoon. Their win put them through to the final against London Greenhouse Pioneers which was played on the Sunday afternoon at the Basketball England National Basketball Centre at Belle Vue. The venue is amazing and the seating around the edges looked pretty familiar!! (It also came from the 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre.

The boys played their hearts out, but in the end Greenhouse were victorious, so we came away with the Silver. medal. Further roundup of the weekend to come soon from the coaches. If players would also like to contribute their own stories and experiences of the weekend, please email to info@thunderbasketball.net. We’d love to hear it from your perspective. Thanks to Jermaine for the amazing pictures
