Gloucester Saxons Basketball Club Announce Adam Stacey As New Men’s Head Coach.

Local coach Adam Stacey will be taking the helm as Head Coach of the Gloucester Saxons Men’s Team in a restructured NBL Division 3 for the 2019/20 season.

When asked about taking on the opportunity to coach Men’s National League Basketball in Gloucestershire, Adam commented…

“ I was really happy and excited when asked if I would consider being Head Coach of the Saxons Senior Men’s Team.  I think it is vital for basketball in Gloucestershire to have a team that provides a place where the best local talent can play, showcasing to all of the younger ballers in the county what can be achieved and where they can end up playing.

It is also really important to provide a pathway for Saxons Under 16s and 18s, plus to atract more young talent play basketball in our county. Having agreed to fill the role my intention will be to build a squad from scratch, running trials, scouting talent and to setting high standards for both players, the club and myself.

Having played and been involved in basketball for 30 years and I very excited and privileged to have been given this opportunity. I promise to learn and grow as a coach and to uphold the values and the hardwork of the Saxons club. “

Gloucester Saxons Men return to training on Tuesday 18th June.

Training Schedule:
Tuesdays 8.30pm-10pm
Thursdays 8.30pm-10pm

Paolo's Last Game

Warriors hosted Pumas in the GBBA (Gloucestershire  Basketball Association) Men’s League on Saturday 19th January 2019.

In this clip, Paolo Colombai runs a Pumas weak side delayed action play.  Pumas make sure they haven’t left enough time on the game clock for Warriors to advance the ball to their front court for a closer 3 point attempt.

2019 Under 14 Boys County Finals

The final game of the day saw Pates and St Peters compete for the title and the right to progress to the next round of the England Schools National Tournament.

After starting well, St Peters built a small lead only for the taller and physically stronger Pates squad to make a spirited fight back and take control of the game going into the 2nd half.

A couple of substitions from St Peters Head Coach, Jack Staynings saw St Peters pick up their defensive intensity in a full court man to man press, forcing Pates into turnovers and scores at the offensive end.

The final 2 minutes of the game were nailbiting and entertaining, with St Peters managing to build a two point lead which they held onto at the final buzzer, which was followed by some eccentric celebrations from the St Peters squad who were clearly delighted with their accomplishment.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all who have been involved in making this years tournament possible.
