For those who came on Wednesday to Scoth Horn they will have sadly witnessed the non-arrival of the UWE team, due to face Nailsea in their first clash of the season. Unfortunately UWE have pulled out of WEBBA this year due to lack of players and so the match was cancelled this week, and the follow up in March will also be removed from the fixtures list. Since UWE have pulled out of the league, no points were awarded to Nailsea for this forefeit.
Obviously everyone was disappointed that there was no game, players and fans alike. Thanks to the supporters who did turn up, hopefully next time the game will happen as scheduled! Nailsea play their next game on Friday 2nd Nov away at Filton, and their next home game is the following week on Wed 7th Nov vs A&S Police.
Nailsea Basketball face their old rivals from Division 3 this week, in their first clash of the season. UWE will be coming to Scotch Horn to face the Nailsea team on Wednesday 24th October. Tip off is at 8.15pm as usual, all supporters welcome!
Following on from Nailsea’s narrow defeat at home earlier in the week, the team played Empees on Sunday 14th October and came away with the win.
MVP honours went to point guard Nick Ball, who finished with 18 points and led by example on the defensive end.
Nailsea played their third match of the season last night, at home against Newport. The Nailsea team came out to a slow start , and ended the first quarter down 11 points, at 11 - 22. Nailsea showed their strong desire to win, clawing the score back from a one-time 14 point defecit to actually take the lead at one point. However, the game ended very closely, going right to the wire, and ending 64 - 66.
Nailsea’s scoring was lead by game MVP, Angus Roach, with 13 points. Dan Roach also clocked up 12 and Nick Oldfield scored 11. An extra big thanks to Marcus Driver for sacrificing his spot on the court to help out with the table last night! As usual, the crowd were fantastic, and I hope the enjoyed one of the closest games we have played to date.

Nailsea Basketball secured their second win of the season against the Olympiad team, away in Chippenham at The Olympiad Leisure Centre. The final score was 74 - 43, with MVP performance going to player-coach, Jason Boulton.
The entire team ended up on the score sheet, showing a solid all round performance from all involved. The deep Nailsea bench meant the team had the opportunity to play fast offense and tough man-to-man defense. The defensive effort helped keep the home team to only 43 points, while the Nailsea team moved ahead with points led by Angus Roach (17) and backed by Nick Ball (11), Jason Boulton (10) and Kieran Morgan (9).
