What a Summer!
As one of the hottest summers in history comes to an end and everyones looks forward to the start of a new school term and basketball season. We take a moment to look back at some of the most exciting moments.
3 London Thunder Players Marcus Bucknall, Josh Uduje and Malachi Boayke-Yiadom were selected onto the U16 England squad, with both Josh and Malachi making the final cut to represent Great Britain at the FIBA Under 16 European Championship Division B held in Sarajevo in August. Its amazing to have 3 players in the squad and we are proud of them all. GB made it through to the quarter finals but were beaten by Russia finishing in 7th place.
In addition the club took a group of players to camp in Spain for the second year running, where two weeks of top notch basketball, fun and competition took place. Coach Peter Lang also took a group of selected players to DME in Florida to enjoy a week of high level elite competition.
Very proud also of all our players who took their GCSE’s there were some great results and it shows that hard work pays off.
It’s been a very busy few months, but we are all looking forward to what next season brings. We have 10 national leagues teams entered this year so it will be an intense and full on time.
