Matthew Bromley All Stars Memorial Game This Saturday

The annual Matthew Bromley All Stars memorial basketball game takes place this Saturday, May 7th at the SGS WISE Arena.

The exhibition game featuring stars from Bristol Flyers is played each year in memory of Matt Bromley. Matt made a significant contribution to basketball in Bristol and Trowbridge and is greatly missed. The game is an opportunity to pay our own tributes and respect to an outstanding friend, team-mate, player and coach.

Admission is by donation and all funds raised will be donated to the Matthew Bromley Foundation which is set up to help young talented basketball athletes.

Matt grew up in Trowbridge and began playing basketball as a teenager at school. In 1996 he led his Clarendon College team to the England Schools National Finals and then went on to join the Trowbridge Hawks in the West of England league.

During 2005/06 Matt playing for Trowbridge was scoring 15 points a game and was voted the most valuable player of the game six times. After leaving Clarendon, Matt attended Bath University to study the HND course in Sports Education & Coaching.
