Linwood no bother for Falkirk Fury under-12 basketball stars
The four cross court games and one full court fixture allowed the large squads of both clubs to get all the players involved in a series of sporting and entertaining matches.
Fury head coach John Bunyan, cadette women coach Kim Bunyan and cadette women player Kirstine Whyte coached the Fury Boys squad with Kai Mungal assisting with the officiating.
And Fury thank Jonny Bunyan, Chris Cleary, Saints’ under-12 boys coach Mathew Cochrane and Emily Wilson from Saints’ cadette women for hosting the much needed competition.
