Paisley Basketball Club is delighted to support the Coaches v Referees game taking place at the Oriam this Sunday.
The match, which takes place on June 30, aims to support the local YMCA in Edinburgh, which is very active in the local community for children. The purpose of the collection is to deliver activities such as after school play and outdoor playground sessions to disadvantaged children. Here are some numbers about YMCA Edinburgh:
- provided over 300 hot meals to children and families over the holiday period to help tackle holiday hunger.
- support 140 children in the year to take part in active play with play-scheme and free after school play sessions for those who need it most.
- run mentoring services for vulnerable young people provided 46 young people with over 2400 hours of mentoring last year. You can support the work through becoming a volunteer mentor or giving a donation.
The game is directed specially to those kids who usually get free school meals and are at risk of going without over the holiday periods. We believe in supporting the work of YMCA and helping to continue the valuable work YMCA started and is still doing.
A disappointing result in the Anderson Cup final today as our Division 1 squad were beaten by Renfrew Rocks in the final. The squad could not crack a ten point lead and were picked off in the fourth quarter.
An injury to Liam Stevenson early knocked the team and we all hope that it isn't serious and he will be back soon.
We send our congratulations to Renfrew Rocks Basketball on the double but we get ready to go again next season.
In one week's time our first division team will be tipping off against Renfrew Rocks Basketball in the Anderson Cup final. In what is set to be an interesting game following a couple of games against them in the league this season.
Renfrew, of course, put our division 2 team out in the semi-final in what was a dominant shooting display by Renfrew.
All in we are hoping for a good competitive match against our local rivals and to bring the trophy back to Paisley.
Night one of Paisley's cup double header has ended with our division 1 team winning against SPRA 74-64.
All eyes now rest on the division 2 squad in their game against the Renfrew Rocks Basketball Division 1 team tonight. It'll be a tough game versus the team sitting at the top of that division but the prospect of an all Paisley final.will drive the boys on.
Supporters welcome at Renfrew High. Game tips off at 8.15
