Sunderland 1sts (navy blue) in action against Sheffield 1sts (yellow) in November at CitySpace.

Team Sunderland Women’s Basketball 1sts take on Durham 3rds on Wednesday February 6 at CitySpace, Sunderland.

Sunderland sit on six points and in sixth place in the 10-team 2018-19 BUCS Northern 2B league, with two wins and four losses from six matches.


Highlights from Team Sunderland’s dramatic 49-57 defeat to Sheffield 1sts on November 28.

Durham are rock bottom of the table on minus-six points as they have twice been deducted points for being unable to field a team and giving their opponent a walkover, including last week against Sheffield 1sts.

They have also lost all four league matches they have played this season and have a points difference of -243.

Sunderland will be hoping to bounce back after their 43-67 defeat away to York 1sts last week and will see this as a must-win game.

Possible Sunderland squad:

(1) Katleen Mangat

(5) Caitlyn Owen

(6) Mildred Lee (C)

(9) Valerie Ray-Oleru

(10) Martina Gouda

(11) Grace Wilkins

(13)Magdalena Cybulska
