Fans Make The Difference - Streete

Born and bred in Bristol, Bristol Flyers captain Greg Streete signifies what the Bristol-based team are all about…hard work, team spirit and passion to win. We caught up with Streete to see how he feels the club’s debut BBL season is going.

“The BBL is definitely more mentally challenging; the smallest mistake can have huge consequences so it is vital to prepare for the game properly to highlight opposition strengths.

“Every team in the BBL has a lot of talent, in the EBL there were generally two or three players who stood out from the rest. In the BBL there is depth in every squad, each player poses a different threat and we as a team need to be aware of this and can’t take anybody lightly.”

With record crowds at the WISE Arena, including huge sell-outs at the last two games, it is clear to see a growing interest in basketball in the local area.

“There is nothing I love more in basketball than playing in front of our home crowd, I love my city and the people who appreciate what we are doing as a club. A lot of the energy we put in on the court comes from our crowd, they make all the difference.”

With high profile wins against some of the BBL’s most successful franchises already this season, there is a confidence within the team that they can compete against the likes of Sheffield Sharks and Worcester Wolves and the experience gained in this first season will be used as a positive for next year’s campaign.

Streete has led the team both on and off the court this season and as we head into Saturday’s local derby against Plymouth Raiders he is focussed on achieving the goals set out at the start of the year.

“League position is important to us as a club, we made a goal at the start of the year and we aim to stick to it.”

Flyers currently hold a 3-0 record over Plymouth this season and this will need to continue in the push for the play-offs.

Tickets for this Saturday are available but selling quickly. Book now online to avoid disappointment.
