Five Royston- based players helped Essex & Herts Leopards under-14s complete a basketball double.

Ben Jackson, Joe Graves, Ayrron Armstrong, Neil Addison and Nathan Crossman helped the Big Cats win the Herts League and Play-off double.

After winning the league without losing a game, they hammered Cambridge Cats 62-17 in the semi-final before a tense final saw them overcome rivals West Herts Warrriors 48-42.

While Jackson attends Meridian School and will move up to Leopards' under-16s next season, the other four players are still at Greneway School, and have another year in the under-14s.

They will all be trying to follow in the footsteps of former Meridian and Greneway pupil Nathan Wilson who is a current England under-18 international and played for Leopards in the national league this season.
