Essex Blades Women are celebrating success after securing a historic league title.
The Blades defeated Kings College London 97-33 in the elite British University Sport (BUCS) Premiership South, overcoming university giants Cardiff Met.
This great achievement during their debut season was a silver lining for the team who were beaten by Ipswich (Basketball Academy) at the Basketball England National Cup Final.
Head Coach Mark Lloyd said: "To bounce back in this fashion within days of the disappointment of the cup final shows what a family we are and the character that this group of players possess. It is great to know we have our first piece of silverware in the bag!"
