* A new breed of Bear was born in the 2014-15 season, dragging the team through what was our toughest season to date! Our at-the-time depleted roster take the time to show-off some 'attitude', as they pose for the camera post-game for the press!

2017-18 Update To Come...

The Existing, 2015-16 Season Update,

After what was, painfully, a period of disappointment, the 2014-15 Essex League season for Bears Basketball goes down in history as ‘The Transitional Year'. This was after numerous roster changes off the back of some uncommitted players and a change in leadership direction, with only 6 Bears players surviving the journey!

 

The survivors, ‘New Breed’ of the 2014-15 season in Billy Lurton, Nathan Watling, Richard Pione and Tony Tiyou, alongside the only remaining founding Bears members in Mike Crumpton and Paul Newman, who collectively managed to drag the club out of financial turmoil and into safety. All this not before having to endure a winless season, in what has become a very competitive second division, and one we can all gladly put behind us!

So, what direction has the club now taken I hear you ask...
