Cheshire Wire victorious in 2017 U14 Anthony Walker Tournament


Cheshire Wire U14s battled through six gruelling 40 minute matches to win the 2017 U14 Anthony Walker Tournament by beating Cheshire Phoenix 47 – 20 in the final in Liverpool. 

The tournament was attended by five teams, namely Cheshire Phoenix , Cheshire Wire , Lancashire Spinners , Stockport Falcons , and the hosts Liverpool . After a round robin tournament, the semi-finals saw Cheshire Wire play against Liverpool and Cheshire Phoenix play against Lancashire Spinners. After the earlier match in the morning which saw Wire snatch a one point victory over Phoenix 23 – 22, it was expected that the afternoon’s contest would be a close encounter also but Wire had other thoughts and put together what can only be described as a dazzling performance of team basketball by those who witnesssed it.

Congratulations go to the whole team and to their coach, Lewis Halpin.
