Baker proud of Leopards

After guiding Leopards to a top half finish in their first season back in Division One, Leopards’ coach Thomas Baker has reflected on his side’s campaign:
“I am sad to see this season end but I am proud of what we have accomplished” he said.
“No one gave us a chance to stay up at the beginning of the year so to have made a National Cup semi-Final and to finish seventh in the league as well as making the play-offs has given us a strong platform to grow from.
“As I have said previously this season has been a rollercoaster, I think I worked out we would have nearly played 40 games together which is by far the most I have ever coached in a single season but I have enjoyed every moment.
“We have had some great performances along our journey ultimately proving that on our day we are right up there with the best teams in this division
“The highs and the lows are natural within a season and it has presented me with a lot to think about over the summer as we look to put together a team that can build on from this.
“I just want to finish by saying thank you to all the players, volunteers and club members who have helped us both on and off the court this year, we couldn’t have done it without you. To Dave Ryan the GM and his fellow director Mark Wright, thank you for continuing to support my vision for this club, it is great to be a part of this organisation.
“To my assistant coach Roger Malpass, thank you once again for being there when I needed you, it’s been a pleasure coaching alongside you.
“It is now time to take some rest with the family before planning for next season and building on this season’s success. “
