Worthing Thunder coach Daniel Hildreth will take charge of his first game on Saturday night as Medway Park Crusaders make the journey to the coast in a National Trophy encounter at the Worthing Leisure Centre.
Hildreth has admitted that this season’s approach will be far different to what Thunder fans are usually accustomed to as he begins the preparations for Saturday. “My goal and our focus is going out and playing harder than the other team in every single play and in every department, starting with Saturday’s game and going forward,” Hildreth said. “I’m not going to lie; it’s going to be different to what, let’s say the newer Thunder fans are used to with regards to how I’m going to run the team and how the players are going to play on the court, but we are looking for the same results and we are looking to get victories and I’m really looking forward to starting on Saturday.” Worthing’s first game of the season against Leicester Warriors was abandoned with three minutes left of the second quarter when Hank Rivers broke the basket following a dunk on a fast break.
England Basketball have confirmed that a decision will be made within the next week as to whether the game will be replayed or not. Hildreth has seen the game tape from last Saturday’s game and is keen to just move on and focus on Saturday’s home game. Tip-off at the Worthing Leisure Centre is at 7:30pm.
