Timms making it a trio of Ellis Memorial wins

Timms making it a trio of Ellis Memorial wins



Entering April and regional action takes place this weekend up and down the country a week before the Elite League begins.

Newport face Horspath at Langland Way hoping to make it a double over the Oxford based side. Newport travelled to the village only a couple of weeks ago and won in arctic conditions 90-89 as Evans and Jones claimed 28 points between them.

Another side that has got out of the starting blocks well this term is Bury. They travel to St Thomas Recreation Ground to face a Stockport side who have won their opening fiture this season.

Next weekend sees the first round of fixtures in the Elite League as champions Horspath welcome Wednesfield, Ipswich face Poole and Birmingham take on Sheffield.
