Danum Eagles will face international opposition on Sunday as part of their annual All Star Weekend.

The National League club will warm up for the new NBL Division Three North season by taking on the Wales national team (11.30am) at Danum Academy Lower School.

Eagles won promotion from Division Four last term in their first ever season at senior level.

Several new signings are expected to make their Eagles debuts against Wales, while the weekend will also see plenty of former players return to Danum for a series of showcase fixtures.

Head coach Bob Martin said: “This really is my favourite time of year, all my former players back together and ready to play Eagles basketball.”

Two Eagles Select teams will play Wales on Saturday before the National League side get their first run out on Sunday.

Former NBA star John Amaechi will be among a range of special guests, while refreshments and entertainment will also be laid on.

Entrance is £2 on the door.
