Last National League games of Season 2014/15

This weekend sees our Senior Women finally play their Playoffs Final 4 game after a long lay off. Disappointingly they have to travel to the Lagoon Centre instead of the Pleasance which was the original venue but a venue double booking means that we are back at the home venue of St Mirren.

Our game is the first up on the Saturday at 10am against Tayside Musketeers. Kats recorded two big wins over Tayside in the league so will be hopeful of progressing to Sunday's final where the winner of Edinburgh University and Lady Rocks await. Let's get behind our team and cheer them on to add the Playoff title to the League title!

More play off action as Junior Men aim to complete the league and play off double and Senior Men get started

This Saturday sees the Junior Men aiming to add the Scottish National League Play Offs title to the league title they won in such style. With only one loss in the league competition this team are a force to be reckoned with and will be looking to start strongly against 3rd placed Blaze. This will be the last game at Junior level for Matt Wingate and Findlay Wood and they will be determined to go out in style! The final is at Grangemouth Sports Complex, all support welcomed.

On Sunday our Senior Men will get their play off campaign started with a match up against Edinburgh University. With one win a piece in their league meetings this season this should be a good game. Coach Doug Reilly will be hoping to build on the recent wins recorded by his players at the tail end of the season.

This weekend is a rest weekend for our Senior Men and Women as they wait for their play offs to get under way. Unfortunately the season is over for our Cadette and Junior Women after their losses in the playoff's last weekend but there is still a lot of basketball on this weekend as the playoffs reach the next stage for the Cadet and Junior Men Division 1 teams with Final 4 games against Blaze and Perth on Saturday. Our Division 2 Cadet Men are in action on Sunday in their Final 8 games with tough match ups against West Lothian Wolves and Perth. It will be a double header for our Junior Men Division 2 team on Sunday. If they can get past Stirling Knights in the Final 4s then they will feature in the final. If they lose they will play in the 3rd/ 4th place match. Sunday also sees the final round of the RDL for our Under 12s and Under 14s.

Good luck to all!

Play offs are here!

With only the Senior Men and one of our Cadet Men D2 team still got league fixtures to finish up, most of the action is now in Grangemouth Sports Complex where the playoffs are being held. The Senior Men however have 2 league games still to play, firstly against Stirling Knights at Portobello on Thursday and the other also at home on Saturday against Tayside Musketeers. Cadet Men D2 Thistle are away on Saturday to South Lanarkshire Colliers in their last league fixture.

For everyone else there is either a weekend off as they have already progressed to the Final 4s or they are playing in the Final 8s. Special mention to the Cadet Men coaching and management team who have worked tirelessly to balance the needs of all 3 Cadet Men teams and have managed to get all 3 teams into the playoffs. Please note that due to the withdrawal of Tayside our Junior Men have a bye and go straight into the Final 4s.

The full list of games over the next couple of weekends is below to help with planning your weekends!

Fixtures for 7th and 8th March

This weekend sees the Under 14s boys play in the Scottish Cup semi-final against St Mirren on Sunday. This team have had a great run in the Cup but will have to all be at their best against a strong Paisley side. Let's hope they will be the third Club team in the Scottish Cup final this season! Elsewhere it is the tail end of the league fixtures with the Senior Women first up on Friday with their last game of the league season away to Lady Rocks. This should be a good game as Kats will want to keep their losses column at zero for the season but Rocks need to win to maintain their challenge for the runners up spot. The Cadet Men Divison 2 Caledonia team are at home at Portobello to St Mirren, so please come down and cheer the team on if you can.

The Junior and Cadet Men are both playing at Dunfermline on Saturday. The Juniors of course are already league champions but will want to keep their momentum going into the play offs next weekend. The Cadet Men will confirm the runners up spot with a win against Dunfermline, the Cadets are on a great run of form at the moment and should get the win needed. The Senior Men will need to bounce back from the disappointment of their Tuesday night loss to St Mirren when they face Glasgow University on Saturday. The only other game on Saturday is the Junior Women against South Lanarkshire Colliers. The Juniors are set for a 5th place finish this season which will mean they will face St Mirren in the play offs.

On Sunday as well as the Under 14s in the Cup we have 3 of our Division 2 teams in action. The Junior Men D2 team are in Grangemouth at the playoffs where they will meet Grampian. The last time the teams met there was only 1 point in it so should be a good game! The Cadet Men D2 Thistle team are at home at Holy Rood against Renfrew Rocks. Kings had a good win against Renfrew the last time they played so let's hope for a repeat. The other Cadet Men D2 win have a longer journey as they head to Perth and again they will be hoping for the same winning result as the teams last meeting.

Title party at Portobello this Saturday in conjunction with Mamma's Pizzeria

We have a special Super Saturday this weekend with all of our National League Division 1 teams at home on Saturday except for the Senior Men, 2 National League trophies being presented and delicious pizza available at the tuck shop courtesy of our friends at Mamma's! The Senior Men will be in action on Friday night at Portobello against Glasgow Storm as the tussle for play off positions continues.

On Saturday our guests are Falkirk Fury as our Cadette, Junior and Senior Women and Cadet and Junior Men all play Fury. First up are the Cadette Women who need to bounce back from their defeat last week at the hands of St Mirren and get the win to maintain their challenge for 3rd place in the league. Next up are the Junior Women who will be looking for a repeat of the strong victory the last time the two teams met. The third fixture of the day is the Senior Women who clinched the National League title last weekend. The League trophy will be presented after this game. After the excitement of the league trophy presentation it will be back to league business as the Cadet Men face Fury, the teams are on the same number of points in the league and the last time they met Kings lost by 11, our Cadet Men have been on fire recently so Coach Craig Nicol will be backing his team to overturn that deficit. The last game of the day at Portobello sees the Junior Men who are this season's League champions take on Falkirk. The Junior Men League trophy will be presented after this game. It would be great to see a big crowd at the last home games of the season to cheer our teams on and share in their success.

Away from Portobello on Saturday the Junior Men Division 2 team travel west to play North Lanarkshire. This league has been a great chance for us to give our developing Junior Men and Cadet Men a chance to get more playing experience.

Sunday sees our first foray into the playoffs as the Cadette Women D2 team play in the quarter final against Ayr Storm. They also have their final league game earlier in the day against West Lothian Wolves. The Cadet Men Divsion 2 Caledonia team are at home at Holy Rood against St Mirren B.

Good luck to our younger players at the Future Starz National Camps on Saturday and Sunday.

THE CADET MEN D2 ON SUNDAY HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FRIDAY 6TH MARCH AT 19:20 AT PORTOBELLO HIGH SCHOOL.

Fixtures for this weekend

A very busy weekend indeed this weekend as all the Division 1 teams have games, the Division 2 teams have games on Saturday and Sunday and the RDL is on. Our table officiating resources will be stretched to the maximum this weekend as we are also running a Referees course so please make sure you volunteer to do the table if you are available.

The Senior Women are back in action on Friday after their weekend off. They are in a very strong position as they travel to Paisley to play St Mirren with 4 games left to play and no losses and their nearest rivals Lady Rocks on 2 defeats.

The Senior Men will hope to bounce back from the disappointment of their defeat last weekend as they travel to Glasgow to play Glasgow Rocks with every game a must win game in their bid to qualify for the play offs.

The Cadet Men and Cadette Women both travel to Lagoon on Saturday to play St Mirren. The Cadet Men are on a great run of form and will be hoping on a much improved result from the heavy defeat they suffered the last time the teams met. Whilst the league is St Mirren's to lose, as they have only 1 defeat compared to the 4 losses suffered by all the nearest challengers including Kings, Head Coach Craig Nicol will be looking to inflict the second defeat of the season on the Paisley team. The Cadette Women have a tough game as St Mirren are one of the joint league leaders and are very strong this season. Kats will be fighting hard to improve on the result from the last meeting.

Two of our Division 2 teams are in action at Portobello on Saturday as the Junior Men play Glasgow City and the Cadet Men Thistle team play Perth. So please come along and show them your support if you can.

On Sunday its the Junior Men and Women's turn to travel to the Lagoon! The Junior Women will be hoping to overturn the narrow loss the last time they met St Mirren. The Junior Men have a vital top of the table match with St Mirren with the Kings league leaders with one defeat and St Mirren sitting in second place with two defeats. The games so far this season have been one a piece with Kings coming out on top in the league match by 7 points but St Mirren taking the match in their meeting in the Cup. So this should be a brilliant game and the result will go a long way to deciding the destination of the league title.

Holy Rood High School will be the home venue for 4 of our Division 2 teams on Sunday as the Junior Men, Senior Men and the two Cadet Men teams are in action.

Our U12s and U14s are also in action in the Regional Development League on Sunday so its a busy weekend for the Club with 15 teams hitting the court in City of Edinburgh colours!

Fixtures for 14th and 15th February

This Valentine's Day weekend sees a lot of travelling for our Cadets and Juniors as they all head off to Inverness to play Highland Bears. After last weekend's outstanding performance by the Cadet Men, hopefully they will not suffer travel sickness and will get the win that could see them leapfrog Falkirk in the league if Blaze bounce back from their defeat at Portobello and get the win in their match. Alternatively if Fury get the win, that will leave 4 teams on the same number of losses behind St Mirren with only one loss. This league is very tight this season and with St Mirren still to play both Fury and Kings it is shaping up to be an very interesting run in.

The in form Junior Men are sitting at the opposite end of the league from their opponents on Saturday and it would be a major shock if they didn't get the win. With their nearest challengers, Blaze and St Mirren, also having fairly straightforward games, the league is building nicely to a showdown next weekend when Kings and St Mirren meet.

The Senior Men are at home to our near neighbours Edinburgh University and this should be an enthralling game as both teams are in the tussle for play off spots and have both hit a good run of form in their last few games. Following the Senior Men's game at Portobello are the U14 boys in the quarter final of the Scottish Cup. They face a tough game against West Lothian Wolves so your support would be appreciated! The Tuck Shop will be open for business on Saturday.

On Sunday its the Cadette and Junior Women's turn to make the long journey to Inverness and we are indebted to the two dads who have offered to drive the team minibuses. The Cadette Women will be buoyed up by their win against Polonia last Sunday and will be looking for another victory to consolidate their league position with only 3 league fixtures remaining. The Junior Women will be hoping to repeat their earlier comprehensive win over Highland and bounce back from their midweek defeat at the hands of SWL. The Senior Women have no game this weekend.
