So the basketball season 07/08 ended in mediocrity. We finished mid table in the league. We got knocked out at the group stage of the Varsities and we came runner up in the plate in the freshers tournement.
Also we have a lost a number of key players as they have finished their studies and at my count we have four of the twelve players that went to the varsities last year left along with three maybe four players that were not at the varsities but will more then likely feature next season. So what does next seaon hold. Well we need new players which we will inevitably get with the new batch of first years. There are also number of players who if worked on could be somthing special. The club itself in my opinion needs an overhaul. The players got along well but I felt it would have been good to have a meet and greet night or somthing in a pub or else a day trip to carlingford adventure centre for a bit of team building. Its clichéd but from experiance I know it works for most players. Then there is the small matter of the coach. Again just like everything else above I'm giving my opinion and what I believe the opinion of the other players is which is that we need a new coach. It was at the varsities tournement that it really showed. A great guy a decent trainer but not a leader which is what we desperatley needed. I look forward to next year but what I'd like to see in place is a commitee, a girls team, a strong mens team and a new coach. Roll on season 08-09
