U18s Prem – Final Fours!!
North West Premier League champions Cheshire Wire under 18s beat London Westside Riders 94-65 in the quarter final play-off to book a spot in the Final Fours at Sheffield’s EIS on May 4 2014.
“Thanks to everyone who came down to Priestley College to support the team, making lots of noise for the Wire, the atmosphere was amazing,” said club secretary Ros Johnson.
We are all so proud of our U16 Premier team, NW League Runners up, who ended their debut Wire season with a hard fought game against Ipswich Basketball in their 2nd Round Play-off game on Sunday, just losing out on a Quarter Final place
71-75. Well done lads!!
Our U15s Boys team made it to the Final Fours for the second year running!
The competition took place on Saturday 5th April 2014 at the University of Worcester Arena.
The semi final saw us play Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) who had previously beaten us in our last encounter as U13s in the 2012 quarter finals. Although NASSA started out strong in the first quarter Wire went on to win the game by 94 points to 68 in a very sweet win!
The final was played against a very strong Peckham Pride who, at one point, were 11 points up on us. Although we fought back, Peckham were just too strong and in the end pipped us to win by just three points 68-71.
Well done U15′s, we are all very proud of you!
