Eagles star Scott Martin will this week be working with the regions up and coming young forwards, hosted by Eagles assistant coach Ian Macleod who is Head Coach of Gateshead College Basketball Academy.

Coach Macleod said; “It is a fantastic opportunity for the young forwards in this region to work with and learn from a player with such a high pedigree as Scott. We have targeted 10 of the regions young players who’s development will mirror Scott’s own, as far as working on the necessary skills to become an effective forward.”

Gateshead College also plans to hold similar sessions targeting other aspects of positional play, with Newcastle Eagles players again featuring heavily along side Ian Macleod.
