2019 to 2021


Liverpool Basketball Club

Local Development for National Success

For the 2018/2019 Season, LBC ran teams in NBL Division 2, U18 North West, U16 North West 1 and U14 North West 1.
We also worked with Sefton Stars Basketball Club to develop basketball and co-operate particularly on an NBL Division 4 team (Liverpool Stars).
All teams played their Home games at Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College.

In NBL Division 2,  the team did not lose a league game all season, winning the Division 20-0. The team continued their good form in the end-of-season Play-Offs, reaching the Final where they defeated Westminster Warriors to become 2018/19 Play-Off Champions.
In NBL Division 4, Liverpool Stars came 3rd in the North Division, earning an Away game against Doncaster Danum Eagles in Round 1 of the Divisional Play-Offs - which they lost 95pts - 73pts.
The U18’s finished 2nd in the North West Division, the U16’s 1st in the North West 1 Division and the U14’s 2nd in the North West 1 Division.

Apart from the D2 team, only the U16’s gained a place in their Divisional Play-Offs - an Away game against the Premier North Division winners, Manchester Magic - which they lost 102pts - 45pts.

The 2019/20 season was the Club’s 50th since being founded in 1969/70, as well as being the 30th season in the NBL.
As a result of winning NBL Division 2 in the 2018/19 season, Liverpool gained promotion to NBL Division 1 for the 2019/20 Season.

The Club expanded once again, additional teams being entered in the NBL at U12 (Mixed), U16 Girls and U16 Boys - together with a Womens team being entered in the Manchester Area Basketball League.

Our full NBL lineup for the 2019/2020 season was U12 Mixed, U14 Boys, U16 Girls, U16 Boys, U16 Boys Premier, U18 Men, Division 3 Men and Division 1 Men.
We also started a Women’s team, playing in the Manchester Area Basketball League.

We were very close to the limits of the facilities we had available for both training and Home games, so our new Women’s team had to train & play their MABL Home games at the Everton Free School.

Although being disrupted and brought to an early end by the coronavirus pandemic, sufficient of the season had been completed to allow England Basketball to finalise Divisional placings.
The Play-Offs were cancelled

In NBL Division 1, the team finished at the bottom of the Table, with 3 Wins from 24 games played. They were relegated to Division 2 for the 2020/21 season.
In NBL Division 3 North, the team finished in 11th place out of 12, with 4 Wins from 21 games played.
The U18’s finished in 3rd place in the NBL U18 Conference North Division, with 12 Wins from 14 games played.
The U16 Premier team finished 7th in the NBL Premier North Division, with 9 Wins from 20 games played; the U16 Conference team finished 7th out of 8 in the North West 1 Division, with 3 Wins from 14 games and the U16 Girls finished 8th out of 9 in the Conference North Division, with 4 Wins from 14 games.
The U14’s finished 10th out of 12 in the Conference North West Division, with 4 Wins from 19 games.
