Hart targets more success for NASSA

Newham All Star Sports Academy enjoyed great success with wins across the board for all their teams at the weekend.

NASSA director Natasha Hart was thrilled with the performances from the squads and believes the teams will build on the excellent start.

“This is another successful weekend for our teams,” said Hart.

“It is clear that the teams are beginning to settle down now and I hope that they will all continue to improve even further with each game.”

The men’s team won 86-52 in the National Shield against County Upper Suffolk Lions, thanks to the efforts of William Ashby, Anthony Okereafor and Hanif Moncrieff giving them the victory, despite going into the fourth quarter with only four players on the court after two players had been fouled out and another one injured.

There was also two wins over the weekend for the under-16 boys.

On Saturday they made the journey to Cambridge and came away with an 85-64 win. Good baskets from Alex Semanda and William Acheampong extended their lead in the fourth quarter, with solid defence from Alexandro Demesa and Eromoselle Unuabona helping the team to victory.
