BASKETBALL: College of West Anglia Fury began the build-up to their season with the traditional friendly against a Fury legends at Lynnsport.

Having recruited some new players during the summer, it was a new-look Fury side that took on a Legends side featuring fan favourites such as Jon Stonebridge and Wayne Gibbs.

Stonebridge was a thorn in the side of the current Fury team scoring and drawing fouls.

At the other end, Fury were still getting used to playing together but there were some positive signs with great ball movement and some good shooting.

However, the Legends stayed close thanks to some tough shooting and free throws.

Fury upped the intensity at both ends of the floor in the second half and rattled off a 19-4 third-quarter run on their way to a 67-43 success.

Fury start their season against Anglia Ruskin University at Lynnsport in the National Shield on Saturday, September 27, 6pm.
