Confidence will be high among the Storm players and their coach
HELLO readers, let me introduce myself, I am Doug McLaughlin-Williams, import player and head of community coaching for the Bristol Academy Flyers.
I was born and raised just north of Washington DC in Reston, Virginia, but have been in Bristol now going on for four years.
For those of you who don't know, the Flyers compete in England Basketball League Division One and are currently sponsored by VCARS.co.uk.
We play all of our home matches at SGS College WISE Campus.

Although the match last week against Medway Park was a low-scoring affair (68-62), late in the game we got stuck in on defence which, as of late, has been the main reason we've started 2-0 in league competition.
This weekend we have two league matches, the first of which is at Hemel Storm on Saturday evening.
We beat them last year in our run to the National Cup final, but they have a few new faces, and have since been promoted to Division One.
In addition to them having the confidence of being in Division One, I'm sure their veteran coach Titmus will have his guys ready to go.
On Sunday, we return to Bristol and Filton to face off against Derby Trailblazers.
It is sure to be a physical match-up, with all the history between the two clubs.
After losing to them last year in the play-off quarter-final, it was easy to be up for the game earlier this season when the Flyers came out on top against them in the trophy competition.
The game tips-off at 5pm at SGS WISE campus.
I am looking forward to seeing all the returning Flyers fans, in addition to some new faces as well.

Catch you all next week.
