Team try-outs took place on Sunday 5 July, Matty Wilson, Year 8 secured a place on the Yorkshire team.

Matty trains every Tuesday and Thurday with the Sheffield Steelers; working on his skill and technique. Matty was confident before the trials and  that all his hard work would pay off and he’d shine at the Yorkshire trials, and he did just that!

Matty’s physiotherapist encouraged him to try wheelchair sports and basketball was the one he showed great promise at, quickly improving over the past year.

The Yorkshire team member said:  “I really enjoyed the trials; I just treat it like any other game. I really enjoy my time with the Sheffield Steelers; sharing fun, memories and I’ve made loads of new friends.”
