Matt Newby - Formerly the Director of Basketball at Leeds Beckett University and head coach at Leeds Force. Newby was given another shot in the BBL over the summer with the Wolves. With a new-look roster and a British core at his disposal, Newby will be looking to bring the club more success following Worcester’s disappointing campaign last season.

The game was balanced with a little more than 90 seconds remaining, when Mike Vigor drained a massive triple to get Flyers back on track.

Justin Gray and Fred Thomas scored 20 points apiece with Gray also completing a double-double with 10 rebounds.
