The annual awards evening was held on the 18th June at Braintree Arts Theatre. It was a wonderful evening, celebrating all the players for their hard work, commitment and successes during the 2021-22 season. The Clubman of the Year award was given to Liam Musson who has devoted countless hours to the club, bringing his endless enthusiasm and fantastic coaching skills to both new and old players alike. Liam’s support of the players is well known and the award was well deserved for all he has done for Braintree Basketball Club this last year. Well done Liam!!
