Five members of next season's St Albans Wolves' under-14s helped Herts U13s to East Region success at Southend on Saturday.

Coached by Wolves' director of basketball Michael Ball, players Billy Harmer, Nestor Sharma, Otis Johnson, Pau Biescas Cervantes and Sebastian Ball helped Herts to a 31-15 victory over Suffolk in the final.

The Herts team were in fine form in the group stage as they beat Bedfordshire by a convincing 67-13 margin and then saw off Essex 39-14 to reach the title game.

The Herts girls' team, comprising entirely of players who have either played for Wolves this season or plan to next year, found the going tougher.

Tor Freeman's side suffered a 32-6 defeat in their first game and although they improved they also lost to Norfolk (22-4), Cambridgeshire (18-8) and Essex (22-10) to finish bottom of the group.
