Eagles School of Excellence
The Newcastle Eagles School of Excellence programme starts this September as the 2016-17 Junior National League season tips off. This year the Eagles are fielding Boys Under 14, Boys Under 16 Premier, Mens Under 18 Premier and Womens Under 18 teams.
On the men’s side the natural player pathway from the Eagles Under 18’s is to the Team Northumbria EBL Division 1 programme under coaches Marc Steutel and Anthony Dawson and ultimately the Eagles BBL programme, under coaches Fab Flournoy, Dave Forrester, Ian MacLeod and Jeff King. For the women progression is to the Team Northumbria WBBL programme under head coach Chris Bunten.
