Big weekend ahead for young Wolves

After a week with only limited action due to half-term, team withdrawals and court unavailability, seven of Wolves' teams face games this weekend.

Wolves are off to St Bonaventure's School in East London on Saturday morning with games against London Lions for both the under-14 boys and under-16 girls.

Ibrahim Gariba's boys team have split their opening two games, winning 78-58 at London Greenhouse Pioneers before suffering a heavy 90-27 loss against Baltic Stars. Lions, who are rebranded Newham Youngbloods,, have only played once, going down 104-30 against Baltic.

In contrast Tor Freeman's girls team will be aiming for a fourth straight league win as they face Lions. They have an impressive average win margin pf 43.7 points after victories against CoLA Southwark Pride, Barking RDF and London Thunder, while Lions have split their two games with a win against Barking and a loss against Haringey Angels.


The action switches to Oaklands on Sunday with two derby games as the under-14 girls host Luton (1.30p,) and the under-16 boys face West Herts Warriors (3.30pm).

It's been a couple of years since Wolves and Luton met, and both sides go into the game with a big win against Kent Crusaders under their belts along with one-point losses against Brentwood Fire and Ipswich respectively

Wolves under-16 boys go into the game with one win - against Harrow - from three games while Warriors conceded their opening league game at Baltic Stars and went down 81-57 against London Greenhouse Pioneers.

The Herts U-13 Central Venue League also resumes on Sunday with three of Wolves' four sides in action. Wolves Development will look to gain revenge for their recent loss against Wolves Performance at 1.25pm before staying on the court to face an Ipswich side who won all three games when they made the long trip on the opening weekend of the competition. Wolves U-12s will look to build on their recent win against the club's girls team when they face West Herts Warriors at 3.45pm.
