9 Warriors – East Midlands U13s


During the month of March 2017 our youth development programme players was involved in a number of trials for selection for the Leicestershire U13s County Team. This is an annual event where Leicester Warriors players have represented strongly since the early 2000s.

From the trials a number of Warriors players were selected to represent the County in both the girls and boys age group, and on the 22nd of April 2017 the basketball players attended Northampton Schools for Girls to play in the East Midlands Competition.

Leicestershire County U13s boys played first in the day beating both Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire and the Girls U13s finished the afternoon off by beating Derbyshire and Northamptonshire.

After the event 9 of our players were selected to represent the East Midlands County Squad, with further trials through the summer. Congratulations to Joe, Akeem, Eve, Sienna, Georgia, Hannah, Rohan, Imo, and Millie.
