The team remained unbeaten all season - an amazing achievement.

 

The squad will now represent Lancashire in the English Schools Basketball Championships.

 

The squad, which comprised Luke Hughes, Kelsey Fairclough, Mikey Sampson, Josh Reeb, Callum Price, Brendan Burke, Euan Coy, Jack Stopforth, Sam Holmes and Leo Beard, were outstanding throughout the finals, even when they had to play back to back games for the semi final and then the final.
