London United is very pleased to announce that we are merging with LTBC Middlesex currently playing in NBL Senior Men’s Division 2. Both teams have used the same facility at Alec Reed Academy for the previous seasons as their home court and have run several community and junior projects together making the decision to merge a natural development.
The newly formed team will compete as London United taking the place of LTBC Middlesex in NBL Senior Men’s Division 2 with the coaching duo of Aurimas Kolesnikovas and Daniel Szatkowski at the helm. London United will also continue to run a developmental team in NBL Senior Men’s Division 4.
Chairman of LTBC, Aurimas Kolesnikovas was very optimistic about the future of the project when he stated: “For the past couple of years we have been sharing the same facility and we had a tremendous relationship with London United on many levels. We share the same vision of building a very strong club with a very successful junior section and community programme to which our existing players are excited to bring their valuable experience. We will also be exploring our natural connection to the Lithuanian basketball market to make sure that this organisation will progress very fast and can be seen on the international scene.”
Emma Chambers, Director of London United shared the sentiment when she observed: “We have always believed that only strong clubs can make much needed impact on the English basketball scene. This merger allows us to strengthen the organisation in a very short period of time and increase the overall provision and impact of the club.”
London United is starting their preparation for the new season in NBL Senior Men’s Division 2 with open training sessions to be held every Tuesday (6pm-8pm) and Thursday (5:30-7pm) from 12th June onwards at Alec Reed Academy, Bengarth Rd, UB5 5LQ
