Thomas was the only Year 7 boy to be picked from the county and this is more of an achievement when you consider he’s one of the youngest in his year group. In a recent tournament in Leicester the team finished third.

Thomas was also selected to be part of the Basketball England development programme, a scheme with the intention of developing future England and Great Britain players.

After almost a year of going to Loughborough and Leicester, Thomas has amazingly been selected for the core East Midlands team and in July will represent the region in a tournament at the National Basketball Centre in Belle Vue, Manchester.

The Aspire training sessions are very demanding and Thomas has demonstrated incredible focus.

Congratulations Thomas!
