First Team Preview: Men’s Team Travel To Manchester As Women’s Team Face Local Derby Away Game

Men’s First Team

Coach Paul Douglas’ side will be looking to secure back-to-back victories after last Saturday’s morale-boosting win at home to Charnwood Riders.

Last weekend’s win was our second of the season, meaning we travel to Manchester with a 2-3 record to start the season.

Nathan Ramsdale-Owen’s 25-points coupled with Michael Price’s nine points and nine boards saw us record our first home win of the season after away success at the University of Chester early in the campaign.

The Opposition

Manchester Magic have won three of their opening four, with their only defeat so far coming last weekend away at Bristol Academy Flyers by way of a 76-72 scoreline.

However, they have also put up 105 points in a dismantling of Charnwood Riders, whilst also securing comprehensive victories at Nottingham Trent University Hoods and at home to the University of Chester.

How To Get There

The game will be played at The Manchester Basketball Centre, Wilbraham Rd, Manchester, M16 8GW
