Bristol Flyers make their long-awaited return to BBL action as they welcome Manchester Giants to the WISE Campus for the first time this season.
Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday’s game can be found below.
The Giants have endured a tough past few seasons, only making the play-offs once since their return to the BBL in 2012. Having not always utilised their full quota of imports, Manchester bolstered their squad over the summer with the additions of American trio Mike McCall, Willie Clayton and Torry Butler.
Danny Byrne’s side have enjoyed their travels this season, with four of their five wins coming away from home.
Danny Bryne has a wealth of experience as a player from stints with Plymouth Raiders, Thames Valley Tigers and Rossendale Raptors. He began his coaching career with Lancashire Spinners shortly before joining the Giants coaching staff as an assistant in 2016.
Manchester’s American forward WIllie Clayton has had an outstanding start to his BBL career. The 6ft8in American has been leading the way for Danny Byrne’s side and is currently second in the league in rebounds, averaging 13.5 per game.
Bristol Flyers finished the 2017/18 regular season on a high, running out 87-105 winners against Manchester Giants at the Trafford Sportsdome.
Saturday’s game against Manchester Giants will be able to watch LIVE online in the UK and the United States via the BBL’s official streaming partner, LiveBasketball.TV.
Manchester Giants’ long-serving captain Callum Jones was also a part of Coach Kapoulas’ Team England squad at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Please note that due to the Christmas pantomime at SGS College on Saturday night, fans are asked to please use the FREE gameday parking located at the Aviva Centre.
One of the standout results of the 2018/19 campaign was undoubtedly a 3-2 win over the Blades at Bramall Lane and supporters can watch the game back in its entirety this Monday evening (March 30th).
