The Northern Girls League started its fixtures on Sunday 16 September. We had the first Triangular Tournament at Manchester Basketball Centre between Mersey, Northants and Manchester.

All seemed to go very well and I feel sure that all the girls/parents really enjoyed the afternoon.

Some points I would make which may be helpful:

* 1.5 hours is needed per game but the referees will have to be strict on the 2 minute break between quarters and the 5 minute half-time.

* The breaks after 4 minutes are simply for immediate substitution and not for the Coach to talk to the players.

* Mersey had 9 players, Northants and Manchester had 10. All coaches respected the rules in terms of playing time which was great.

I would like to thank Northants and Mersey for being ready to play so early in the season.

Matt Roberts, our Webmaster, will update results and table immediately after receiving the information after each Tournament. The website is now updated from yesterday. Also, check Gallery for smiling faces at the Tournament.
