While Clark Eriksson Fury’s 6 National League teams continue to prepare for the start of the new Scottish League season there has never been more going on in the sport in the Falkirk area.

Fury’s National League teams are all raring to go but Fury Headcoach John Bunyan has told Heraldsport there are plenty opportunities to get involved in the game.

“We have just come off the back off a great season – Mens Scottish Champions, more than 20 players involved in Scotland teams this summer and two former players in the GB Mens team. In the season ahead we are pretty much on the mark with all our National League teams but we are always on the lookout for talented athletes/players who could play on the National stage.

“Our Development squads for u16, u14 and u12 boys and girls are pretty full but again we look for potential all the time and will trial all interested players.

We will be partners in two basketball academies this season at Falkirk High and Larbert High and hope to replicate Falkirk High’s Scottish Championship winning team from 12-13.

The club are also partners in the Tryst Community Sports Hub with two sessions on Thursdays for u12s and u16s and we will work with Falkirk Community Trust’s basketball expansion.

Details of these classes are on the Falkirk Community Trust Website.
