Newcastle Eagles basketball match

7th February 2015

On the evening of Friday 6th February, 53 pupils, parents, staff and their families from Eastlea went to see the Newcastle Eagles take on the Leicester Riders at Sports Central for a fast paced basketball match.  As always the atmosphere was great and we all joined in the noisy support for the Eagles team.  "Lets Go Eagles" chants could be heard being loudly sung/shouted from our seats in the North Stand and when 'noise' was requested during penalty shots the Eastlea contingent did not disappoint!

We were all delighted when the Eagles claimed victory with a final scoreline of 104 - 81.  This means that we maintain our 100% record of never having seen the Eagles lose (and piles on even more pressure for the team when we go again next year!!)

At the end of the match, Anthony Sampson (basketball coach) arranged for us to have our photo taken with the Eagles team and some even managed to secure some autographs!

A super night of sporting action - great fun and well supported as always!
