Coach Jim Martin and Jacob Byrne excited for last dance in Dublin

Belfast Phoenix U18 Boys will face off against the Dublin Lions in the Final of the Billy Coffey U18 Men’s National Cup at 8:15pm in the National Basketball Arena in Dublin.

Phoenix seen off the Portaloise Panthers in the quarters before narrowly overcoming the Titans from Galway in a close semi final to mark their spot in the final.

We were able to catch up with Head Coach Jim Martin and BNI Youth Forum member and Phoenix U18 Captain Jacob Byrne in their final practice.

To watch these guys develop together and to see what they have accomplished is awesome

Jim Martin, Head Coach

I’m really excited for tomorrow night, the team’s been working at this for 2 years now… it’s great to show people that the North can compete.

Jacob Byrne, BNI Youth Forum Member and Captain

Everyone at BNI send their best wishes to the boys before their big game.
