The Bury Bombers are a wheelchair basketball team based in Bury St Edmunds that caters for people of all ages and abilities. The Club works from grass roots to National League level with the ethos of Courage, Inspiration, Determination and Equality.
The Bury Bombers team and Head Coach Jill Anderson, had a very successful evening
at the Suffolk Sports Awards in Ipswich on October 16th 2011.
The team got Honourable mentions in regards to the Awards ‘Junior Team of the Year’
and ‘Club of the Year’. Jill, represented by Peter Rix, was Runner Up as ‘Coach
of the Year’ and ‘Contribution to Disability Sport’, a fantastic achievement.
The best point of the evening was the First team winning ‘Senior Team of the Year’,
an award the team have been hoping to win for several years now. With the First
team on their way back from West Sussex, Lloyd Jones and Rui Pereira represented
the First team, as members in it last year.
A massive congratulations must go out to the whole team, who thoroughly deserve all
the recognition they receive.
