New Year 9 Basketball Team for HGS

The year 9 basketball team had their first ever game on Thursday 7th November playing a friendly fixture away against Yardleys school. The team which started only at Easter, has been training every week under the guidance of Mr Conway, Mr King and Mr Rupal our PE trainee

Despite losing their team captain, Suffian Fad Elazhi after only one minute of the game through injury, the team played very well. Notable performances came from Malvir Padda and Suffyaan Irfan who battled manfully against the giant opposition, and Inder Sangha who scored some tremendous baskets.

Team managers Mr Conway and Mr King reported themselves to be pleased with this run out, and are already looking forward to the league campaign which begins in earnest next week with a game against North Birmingham Academy, at home on Tuesday.

The team is pictured below:
