Danum Eagles continued their preparations for their Men’s National League bow by winning the Hoops On The Humber tournament in Hull.

Eagles defeated Hull Wasps U18s, Grimsby Gators, Kingston Panthers in the group stage.

The Doncaster club then came up against National Division Two side Lancashire Spinners in the final and emerged as narrow 45-44 victors to lift the trophy.

Mathew Martin, George Colwill and Josh Metcalf performed well throughout the tournament.

However, the MVP honours went to Liam Knapp who looked perfectly at home competing with the men despite being 17 years of age.

Danum will enter Division Four of the National League next month.

They face York Tornadoes in another pre-season friendly on Saturday.
