Drew Praises Bounce Back Character

A week of inactivity gave Esh Group Eagles veteran guard Drew Lasker a chance to reflect on the mixed fortunes his side went through last weekend, writes Jeff King.

Report: Eagles vs Sheffield Sharks (BBL Trophy Quarter-Final)

For seven long years Sheffield hearts sank every time a cruel BBL fixture list taunted the club with yet another tiresome trip to Tyneside.

Report: Eagles vs Surrey Scorchers (BBL Trophy First Round)

Can raw talent trump proven experience? Four weeks ago and the answer appeared blindingly obvious. Thrills, spills and audacious skills had catapulted new-look Newcastle to the summit of the BBL Championship table in double quick time. Undefeated in the league and undaunted by a journey into the unknown, it seemed the Eagles’ red hot rookies…

What’s In A Squad?

Seems like a good time to launch another blog especially as I haven’t for over a week now. Perhaps this one will get lost in the myriad of all other things that will be going on this weekend, not least of which is tonight’s crucial game against The Scorchers. Plus, non-Eagles wise but very much…
