I started coaching able bodied basketball at the Bradford Dragons and worked with every team from under 12 up to division 2 Men and women’s. in my last season coaching AB basketball I was head coach for the University of Bradford women's 2nd team and also Head coach of the Bradford Dragons women's team. After this I decided I wanted to get involved within wheelchair basketball and completed my Grade 1. I was instantly hooked on the sport! over the past few years I have built my own team in Bradford, assistant coached for England North at the 2013 school games where we won Gold! And most recently been appointed head coach of England North for 2014 school games and also Head coach for the Yorkshire regional performance centre. I am looking forward to Head coaching the Spiders in Division 1 and helping to build on the ambition and passion at the Spiders! We have big plans and hope you will join us on our journey!

Division 3 - Coach Jules Deumeni.

Now I've got an opportunity to use all these coaching skill in wheelchair basketball. I was impressed with the facility at Morley.

Above Leeds Rhinos Super League Player Steve Ward and Ronnie the Rhinos came to training.

With both games back to back it should be a great opening start to the season, featherstone have moved venues this year to Knottingley Sports Centre, so new for all teams.

Leyland Warriors may be a new team but with familier faces in 3 of the England team who returned home from France less than 2 weeks ago suffering a defeat to france 64-46 , Team Manager Phil Roberts, Captain Martin Norris, and Adam Rigby, should give Rhinos a great competitve game.

Spider - Y have been a crucial part of me getting involved with wheelchair basketball. I started playing 2 years ago
after I was involved in a car crash and became injured.

I was warmly welcomed at the club and always encouraged to keep trying with the sport.
Thanks to this continued support from Spider Y and the good coaching provided I was scouted by someone from the GB programme and was asked to be part of their set up and attend training camps etc.

I recently was selected to compete in the European Championship in Frankfurt for GB where we got a Bronze Medal.

It is thanks to Spider Y that I didn't just give up when I was finding getting to grips with basketball hard
