Aces Hawks Junior League Round One

A day after Aces Diamonds began their Junior League Season; Aces Hawks started their season by hosting the first round of their group’s fixtures at Furze Platt School, Maidenhead.

Before the day had even started Aces Hawks were put in the unfortunate situation of being down two players, due to unforeseen circumstances. This left the team with only 5 players, two of which were 5 pointers, meaning they couldn’t be on court together.

The team had two options, forfeit and play the two games as a friendly or start the game with 5 players, take the technical foul and then play on with 4 on court. The decision was made to take the second option, play the games with 4 players on court.

Finally, Junior League is here. Something the players have been looking forward to for months. On the day Aces Diamonds were up against Newark Jaguars and Norwich Lowriders. The squad was missing a few players from last season due to one being injured and a few being too young for the new structure. That didn’t stop the six players that were available turning up and giving their all for 80 minutes across the two games.

Aces End of Season Review 2016-17

 Last week Aces played their final game of the 2016/17 British Wheelchair Basketball Division 3 South & West season. It has been a season of ups and downs for Aces as a whole but one we can ultimately be proud of.

Starting with the junior section of the club. Both the U15s and U19s finished the season in 4th place in their respective leagues. The U15s under the stewardship of Jez Winsborrow assisted by Kathy Beaumont and Zviko Chigumba showed a lot of promise throughout the three rounds of Junior League. The 2017/18 season should be one to watch with the U15s wanting to make the finals.
