Flournoy confident of repeat clean sweep

Newcastle Eagles coach Fab Flournoy believes his side can repeat their clean sweep of trophies last season.

The Eagles are Britain’s most successful basketball club with 17 honours, and Flournoy says as long as the squad have the motivation to win he can take that tally to 21.

He said: “The moment that motivation is gone that is the time for me to go because that’s the need for the club.

“I motivate, it’s not winning or medals, it’s going through the battle, putting together the team and creating the brotherhood.

“Although we’ve won we’ve still got a long way to go as a club and a team for what we’re trying to do. The winning is just the icing on the cake.”

Flournoy will have a hard task to reclaim all of Newcastle’s silverware. The loss of Andrew Bridge, Paul Gause and Andrew Thomson will be a big blow for the Eagles.
