Our Eagles have returned home from their week in Belgium for some intensive pre-season training and challenging first games against some excellent competition to put them to the test ahead of their first tastes of BBL action as a new squad this week and next.

Your first chances to see the new team in action here in Newcastle are on Monday 10th and Wednesday 12th September with tickets to both those pre-season games on sale now.


The 2018-19 Esh Group Eagles Newcastle squad had their first minutes together in pre-season against two of the top teams in the top-flight Belgian EuroMillions Basketball League last Friday and Saturday on the continent and one of the local photographers there has given us our first glimpse of some of our new and returning players in action:

Fab calls time out to set-up the next play with some familiar faces on the Eagles bench
Rahmon Fletcher back in black and white against top Belgian team Spirou Charleroi in pre-season
New Eagle Victor Moses in action on defence from Spirou Charleroi in our first Belgian pre-season game
