Although London United finished last after 3 defeats, they were able to stay in contention for 3 quarters and on each occasion dramatically has faded away in last 10 minutes of the game.
Daniel Szatkowski, United’s head coach was very clear with his message after the tournament: “It was definitely a very useful way of preparing us for the next season. We will have to work very hard in the next 2 months to make sure that we will be prepared for our first competition in the European Youth Basketball League”.
Next weekend our U18 will be tested in the U18 London Summer Series where they will compete against London RegionalU17, ,Zastal Zielona Gora [Poland] and Sopron [Hungary]
