Kirton youngster Charlie Bonner has helped his wheelchair basketball team to their third consecutive league title.

Charlie, 14, was competing for the Newark Jaguars under 15s at the National Junior League Central Division matches at Nottingham’s Wildcat Arena.

A 24-22 victory over the Wolverhampton Rhino was followed by a victory over the Manchester Mavericks, again by the same scoreline.

These wins saw Charlie’s team qualify for the Junior League Championship Play-off finals as undefeated winners of the Central Division.
