Unbeaten East Cambs Warriors win Peterborough basketball title
Last Friday East Cambs Warriors Basketball Club Under 16 team completed their first ever season in the Peterborough Basketball League, winning the Division Three title with an unbeaten record.
Only six players were available for the game, but that did not stop them going onto win.
Fixtures began in the league in November 2015, and although only three teams were involved in the competition East Cambs Warriors, Huntingdon Hawks and Nene Valley Venom, the games came thick and fast, being played at Stanground Community College, Peterborough in a central venue format.
All games were played in a competitive and friendly spirit, but in the end East Cambs Warriors proved to be the better team, remaining unbeaten and winning all games with double figure victories.
Head coach Rob Knapper said: “The club has only been in existence as East Cambs Warriors since 2014, before that we were Witchford Warriors and when we merged with Ely Flames we became East Cambs Warriors.
“For us to achieve what we have done in two years is brilliant not only for the club, but for the young players on the team that represent schools and the community of East Cambs and Fenland.
“It is our first ever title and silverware ever and that is very special to all of us, but especially to the boys that have played in the team, they will always have the honour of winning the club’s first ever title! I hope that with this win, we can go onto win even more.
“We are already one of the biggest junior clubs in the county and we hope to get bigger.”
