The Cheshire Brewers finally got their hands on the North Wales Basketball Association League Trophy at the end-of-season awards.

Hosted by the Springfield Hotel in Pentre Halkyn, Flintshire, the awards saw the Brewers collect their trophy and medals for topping the regular season standings.

In addition guard Pete Arden was named point guard in the All-Star team, as well as finishing second in the three-point scoring race.

Fellow Brewer Rob Smith was second in the Top Fouler category.

The awards were collected by Chairman Adam Lloyd, Vice Chairman Alec Doyle and senior player Lester Dorozik and presented by Mark Timperley, Head Coach of Wrexham Warriors.

Terry Price Cup: Cheshire Brewers 80 Barry Huskies 63

TP Game2 34 small

The injury-plagued Cheshire Brewers somehow rediscovered their form in the dying embers of their season to overcome Barry Huskies and take their place as the third best team in Wales in the Terry Price Cup.

As head coach Tom Griffiths juggled his ever-depleting roster, from somewhere the confidence returned and the runs began. Robbed of the on-court influence of Pete Arden, the youthful vigor of Danny Pearce and forced to carefully manage the struggling Steve Flanagan, MVP Iker Amuchastegui and Che Ofili, Griffiths saw his team finally dig themselves out of trouble and re-establish themselves and their natural style of play.

From the bench Adam Lloyd made a real impact, bringing energy and physicality on defence to assist teammates Rob Smith, Jake Cooke and Alan Lawrence, the four of them sharing the load as Griffiths attempted to protect those carrying knocks.

By the end the Brewers had rediscovered their swagger and though it was too late to translate into silverware this season, the side was able to put the season to bed with an uplifting performance.

Terry Price Cup: Cheshire Brewers 62 Cougars 75

TPC Game 1 small

The Cheshire Brewers made their first ever appearance in a national championship final at Aberystwyth University against South Wales outfit Cougars.

They were looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their loss in the North Wales League playoff final a month ago.

It was a tight game throughout the first half but the Brewers trailed by 5 at the midway point.

The third period proved crucial as the Cougars cemented their foothold on the game. The Brewers launched a mini-comeback with four minutes to go of the final quarter but it was too little, too late and the Cheshire side were left facing the prospect of a third/fourth place playoff.
