Lewes has a brand new basketball team – and the Sussex Express went to meet the men behind its birth.
Former Brighton Bears coach Rob Birchmore is Lewes Warriors club founder and head coach, while born and bred Lewesian Julz Baker is a player and club chairman.
Sussex Express sports editor Brian Pollard went to meet the pair at one of the club’s very first training sessions.
The pair spoke passionately about the need for a basketball team in Lewes – and also about their hopes and expectations as the Warriors makes its debut in the prestigious Sussex Basketball League later this year.
See here for a video featuring Rob, Julz and some of the other members of the brand new Lewes Warriors team.
