* Bognor Pirates will be concentrating on the Sussex Men’s League and cup this season - and no longer participating in the National League because of a shortage of players able to commit to the travelling.

Their first home game this Saturday is versus Brighton Cougars, tip-off at 7pm at The Arena Sports Centre, Bognor.

There will be music, a DJ, a raffle and a half-time shootout to win a basketball. Entrance is just £3 for adults, £2 students/concessions and £1 children under 16.
