Lothian Phoenix top Lord’s Taverners Junior Leagues

The third and final round of the 2019 Lord’s Taverners Junior League took place last weekend as teams from across Scotland travelled to Aberdeen.

Held at the International School Aberdeen, Lothian Phoenix picked up a win in the only game in the U13 division, defeating Dragon-Flyers Select 20-16, meaning they top the U13 table ahead of the finals.

In the U18 division, Dundee Dragons were the side in form.  The team picked up back to back wins over Grampian Flyers and Lothian Phoenix, winning 18-12 and 20-8 respectively. In the third game, Lothian Phoenix clinched the win 16-10 against Grampian Flyers. The results mean that Lothian Phoenix are the side that come out on top of the U18 League.

basketballscotland’s Disability Talent & Pathways Manager, Tina Gordon, was delighted with the day’s action:

“Players had the opportunity to pick up some new skills during the camp in the morning, and It was fantastic to see players putting these into practice in the afternoon’s league games, cheered on by friends and family. This is a really good sign of what’s to come for wheelchair basketball in Scotland and we’re excited to build on this with the help of Lord’s Taverners”

The Lord’s Taverners Junior League Finals will be held at the end of this year, with the teams gathering once again to battle it out for top spot.
