Report: Eagles vs DBL Sharks Sheffield

Forget the Williams sisters. Newcastle have netted the Williams brothers. And if a packed Sport Central only witnessed a brief glimpse of what brothers Kai and Jamal can do together as a doubles partnership then there’s no doubt the Eagles are suddenly stronger with two genuine BBL aces in their pack.

Report: Eagles at Cheshire Phoenix

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle maintained their 100% BBL Championship record with a tough, hared earned road win at Cheshire last night writes Jeff King.

Report: Eagles vs London Lions

Friday 13 was always going to be unlucky for one of the BBL’s early-season pacesetters. But Fabulous Flournoy makes his own luck.

Question? When is a sporting Giant-killing not a shock result? Answer, when Esh Group Eagles Newcastle are in town, writes Jeff King.

Report: Eagles vs Glasgow Rocks

Five-and-a-half years is a long time in basketball. Just ask Glasgow Rocks.

Report: Eagles at Leeds Force

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle opened their BBL Championship challenge on the road in Leeds tonight, writes Jeff King. And what a sensational opener it was too as Fab Flournoy’s black and white warriors laid siege to Leeds’s doors and forced them down in some style. As statements and markers go this must be one of…
