FURY 10 IN TRI-NATIONS U14YRS INTERNATIONALS
Sony Centre Fury BC sees no fewer than 10 of their U14 players representing Scotland this week-end in Dundee. The record number of players reflects the strength of Fury's U14 Boys and Girls teams this season, that this has seen the Girls team go unbeaten in the Scottish League and the Boys with the best record in the Scottish League.
6 U14 Girls are in the 24 players representing Scotland, which has 2 teams taking part against teams from England and Wales - RACHEL DAGGER - POPPY DUNCAN - DAISY LAWSON KYLA TORRANCE - BETHANY SNEDDEN - JESSICA CRAM are the Fury players, all having played for Fury's U16 Girls team throughout the season, as well as the Fury U14 team.
4 U14 Boys are in the 24 players representing Scotland, which has 2 teams taking part against, also, teams from England and Wales - ANDREW HENDERSON - GAVIN BLACK ADAMA HAINEY - DANIEL GOACHER are the players, 3 of whom also played for Fury's U16 Boy's team throughout the season, as well as the Fury U14 team.
Fury Headcoach John Bunyan commented to Heraldsport ahead of the Tri Nations - "To have 10 players from one club representing Scotland in these age groups reflects the effort and dedication of the players themselves, their parents and their club coaches and the organisation of Fury BC. One of the key reasons, our players at this age group are performing at a high level is a combination of the work we carried out during Covid and beyond. As a club we were able to get these and our other players, training on outdoor courts, then indoors in non contact situations, these players were able to continue to develop when many had no opportunity at all. The fact that 9 of the 10, not only played this season in their own age group, but in U16 Division1 basketball was also a huge plus for them. Working with multiple coaches in the club, on individual and team situations has also been huge. The fact also that these players came out of a very strong Falkirk PS league, JrNBA and then into a strong club situation is a testimony, not only to them but the development of players in the Falkirk area."
