Westminster Warriors will look to bounce back when they play host to table-topping Milton Keynes Breakers this weekend.

In a hard-fought battle against NASSA last Saturday, the Warriors suffered an 87-74 loss, but there were some exceptional performances despite the setback.

Justin Hitchman and Kevin Kolesnikovas contributed 20 points each, with the standout highlight being the impeccable shooting of Kolesnikovas, who showed great accuracy on the court.

However, the Warriors encountered difficulties in preventing NASSA from scoring effectively on their home court as Raph Jegede managed to put up 17 points to contribute significantly to their victory.

As the Warriors regroup and prepare for their next challenge in National Two South, they are gearing up to face arguably the strongest team in the league in the Breakers - who boast a 5-1 record - on Saturday (5.30pm).

The upcoming showdown promises to be an intense battle and fans won't want to miss it. Tickets can be purchased online at westminsterwarriors.org/tickets.

The club has also announced the much-anticipated return of the Westminster Warriors’ junior team after several years on the sidelines.

Enthusiasm within the community is clear as Warriors prepare to introduce a new generation of young talent onto the court.

Youth development has always been at the core of the organisation’s mission and Warriors firmly believe weekly games of competition play a pivotal role in shaping the lives of young athletes.

These experiences on the court instil discipline, teamwork, leadership, and a strong work ethic – qualities that transcend basketball and have a profound impact on the community as a whole.

Coach George and Coach Ade, who have been running the programme for many years, understand the importance of this moment and, in a joint statement, said: “We couldn’t be more thrilled about the return of our junior team.

"This is not just about basketball; it’s about helping these young individuals develop into confident, well-rounded individuals who can make a positive impact on our community.”
