London Metro Team
Erks lose final by 8
Erks lost the London Met Plate final by 8 to Westminster in another scrappy low scoring game, against an athletic Warriors squad who fielded 4 of their NBL Division 1 team including leading scorer Pierre Henry-Fontaine and high-flying forward Leon Bernard. In the absence of Dela Agbolegbe, the Erks struggled to advance the ball up the court in the face of unrelenting full court pressure from the Warriors and only the Warriors poor shooting kept us in the game. Hopes were high after a late 3rd quarter run saw us close within 2 points. However we turned the ball over repeatedly at the start of the 4th quarter and never looked like coming out on top.

Erks 56 Westside 81
With Erkenwald's mid table position in London's Premier basketball league assuring them of staying in the top flight, an out of sorts Erks team could find no enthusiasm for this latest LMBL encounter to a Westside team desperate for points to stay in the division.

Erks scorers:
Declan McCusker 9; Lee Atkinson 6; Ed Bailey 12; Paul Haydan 5; Keith Pringle 15; Martin Overare 8; Shakey Rose 3

Erks have one game remaining at home to White Heat in the league. Erks record currently standing at 8 wins and 9 losses.

Erks also await their LMBL plate semi final against the winners of Barnet & Cardinals.

Erks by 12
Erks won the first of the 2 LMBL meetings of the teams this season last Sunday. Although Erks had a full squad, including an appearance from Lee McCarthy, Erks struggled to find much rhythm in a scrappy affair which Erks ended up winning by 12 having lead from the very start.

Shambolic Erks
Wandle completed the league double over Erks on Monday after a shambolic performance from the Erks.

With Mark & Irfan failing to appear and Rela turning up at the end of the first quarter, the Erks played most of the first quarter with only 4 players comprising Declan, Garbage Time Dave, Ed & Chims. The home team took full advantage and quickly went out to a 24 - 8 lead.

Erks rallied but the home side were playing with confidence and never looked back. The closest Erks got to was within 9 but never really looked like coming away with anything other than a loss.

Erks scorers:
Rela 5; Ed 14; Declan 8; Garbage Time Dave 32; Chims 2

White Heat by 28

Erks knocked out of Cup
Erks were knocked out of the cup on Friday by 1st Division team Middlesex University. An understrength Erks team had to rely on 40 minutes each from Martin Overare and Fun Ed Bailey as the only Erks forwards available on the day.

Erks led 21 - 16 at the end of the first quarter and 34 - 31 at half time. However a 10 - 0 run by the home side at the end of the third saw Erks trail for the first time and couldn't find the points to take the game.

Erks now enter the plate competition with all other first round losers.

Erks scorers:
Declan 5, Fun Ed 7, Lee Atkinson 2, Martin Overare 26, Chris Olufeso 12, Mark Denchfield 8, Nelson 4

Wandle by 3
With both teams understrength, this was a very low scoring and poor game. Ed Bailey top scored with 14 although this wasn't enough as Wandle took the victory.

Erks scorers:
Declan 2; Chris 6; Steve Herd 4; Nelson 8; Ed 14; Keith Pringle 11; Paul 4; Dave Passacantilli 5; Lee Atkinson, Rela.
