The finals of the year 7 boys basketball league saw the culmination of a terrific season of great action and skill and provided a thrilling finish.

4 teams qualified for the Championship finals and 4 teams for the plate finals played at the Wildcats Arena on 13th May.

The Plate Finals provided high scoring matches and some very close finishes with Bluecoat A taking the gold medals,
Fernwood silver and Djanogly the bronze.

In the Championship Finals the top 4 teams from the league rounds played off with semi-finals. Both games were end to end affairs with Big Wood eventually overcoming Emmanuel by 1 point and Nottingham Academy beating Farnborough 5 -n 2.

In the bronze play-off game Emmanuel got over the disappointment of their 1 point semi-final defeat to beat Farnborough 10 - 6.

The final produced the lowest scoring game of the evening. With defences well on top the score was 2 - 1 to Big Wood with over 5 minutes to play. Nottingham had wave after wave of attack but the Big Wood team showed great composure to lock the score down and take the title.

Big Wood will now go through to the County Finals on 5th July
