May nets shooting crown as North West finish fifth

  Sunday, July 02, 2017

Manchester Magic's Bradley May won the shooting contest at the Under 13 Boys Regional Development Tournament in Manchester as North West finished fifth.

The 12-year-old beat off players from nine other regions to take the title on Sunday.

May was joined in the 12-strong North West squad by club-mates Sam Andrew, Harrison Ball, Ben Brown, Matthew Giwa and Matthew Goodwin.

The boys represented the Magic in style during the two-day competition at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Belle Vue, winning six of their seven games and coming out on top in each of their seven skills contests.

Due to a three-way tie for first place after the group games, North West missed out on the semi-finals and played off for 5th to 10th place on Sunday.

North West were coached by Cheshire Wire's Stephen Welsh, with Magic's Gary Williams acting as his assistant.
