Tough test for United’s U18 in Zielona Gora
Our young United players are going through true purgatory during their preparation for the upcoming season. They have registered two heavy defeats against Korona Krakow and Zastal Zielona Gora which beat them 74-47 and 69-43 respectively. Despite the quite dramatic looking scorelines the young Londoners are putting up quite a fight against top European opposition. Against Korona they were trailing by 11 after the third quarter, however a disastrous last ten minutes deprived them of a far more respectable scoreline.
Head Coach Daniel Szatkowski was quite philosophical after the first day of the tournament when he delivered this comment “We came here to learn and we can’t be discouraged by our results so far. There is no other way to learn proper European basketball than playing these type of tournaments. believe me rather sooner than later we will learn how to play on this level.”
Tomorrow (Saturday 12th September) United will face opposition from both MKK Pyra Pozan (10:45am) and KKS Kobierzyce (7:30pm).
