East Cavan Eagles are delighted to have been invited back to The St. Brendan’s Tralee basketball tournament. Our Under 12 Boys had a truly brilliant time there last year and this time it is the turn of our Under 14 Boys to make the trip to The Kingdom.
The tournament takes place from the 20th to the 22nd March and should prove a real test for the boys before what would appear to be an imminent trip to Basketball Ireland’s All Ireland Club Championships in Sligo in April.
The boys currently stand at the top of their league with an an impressive 8 and 0 record and would look likely to progress to the AICC’s .
We would like to thank St. Brendan’s for the invitation and look forward to meeting up with some friends again.
We would like to thank Drogheda Ladies Basketball Club for bringing their Under 14 Girls team over to Virginia today to play a challenge game.
It was great for us to get to meet new people in the game and we look forward to meeting you all in again in the near future.
Big thanks goes to our referee for the game Paul Sheridan and our table officials Rory Bett, Sean McEvoy & Jake Verschoyle.
East Cavan Eagles Basketball Club are committed to developing our sport in the community and to this end we are pleased to announce the launch our Primary School Programme.
