Clark Eriksson Fury’s 14-year-old Alex Hall was voted into the Tournament All-Star 5 at the Basketball-Scotland Summerslam.
Hall, a key figure for the Scotland U14 team, played superb basketball all weekend in matches against international opposition. A product of the Falkirk club’s development program, Hall had made the National team as a 12-year-old and was amazingly left out the following year’s U13 squad.
Re-selected for the Scotland U14 team, Hall showed why he is one of the country’s most promising players. Having worked his way into Fury’s U16 Scottish National League side this season all his efforts off and on the court were recognized as Scotland battled to second place in the four-team international competition –losing only to top Spanish club side CB Zaragoza after wins over national sides Luxembourg and Northern Ireland.
In the under-14 Girls competition, Fury’s Emma Norval was in excellent form throughout their campaign with Falkirk teammate Carmen Tran not able to fully take part due to an ongoing wrist injury. The Scots finished third in their event with wins over a Dublin side and the Northern Ireland national team, with losses to Luxembourg and Hessen.
In the Senior Women’s matches against Austria, Fury had two players selected for the Scotland Women’s team – point guard Ailie Gardiner and forward Laura Nimmo. The Scots lost both matches.
