The Basketball Junior Final Fours took place in Manchester this weekend at the National Basketball Performance Centre, and our very own Mr Easton, Head of Basketball and Teacher of Oratory Science, was asked to officiate the games. Here's his account of the weekend:
"The Final Fours are the play off semi finals and finals of the National League Play Offs. There were 6 categories: U14, U16 and U18 boys and girls. My role was to record the statistics for each game that can be followed live online, this involves plotting every play and event that happens on court.
The best players from around the country were there along with the top level officials. I worked on the U16 finals and U18 3rd/4th placed play offs on the second day. It was a privilege to work with and learn from many experienced officials and to be part of this national event."
