Former Great Britain international Ross Morrison was over the moon after he helped London Storm retain their title at the BT National Championships in Leicester earlier this month.

Having represented GB at three Paralympic Games in Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012, Morrison was ever present for Storm across the weekend at the Leicester Arena, home of British Basketball League side Leicester Riders.

The London based side won the BT Super Series Division One back in April, the third time they have won the league in the last four seasons. Storm also won the Bernd Best Professional League in Germany before retaining the Cup at the BT National Championships.

Morrison (pictured above) said: “This season has been really good and far better than expected. We missed Jim (Roberts) whilst he played in America and we had different players unavailable at different times for personal reasons so the fact that we were able to get through the season, win the league, Bernd Best and now the Nationals was great. We have come a long way and I am very pleased.

“The National Championships is awesome and our showcase tournament, the top teams all come together and the winner takes all and it really shows the best side of Wheelchair Rugby in the UK. It is such a big deal and I think that is why it means so much to go and win it.” he added.

It was a fantastic weekend of action at the Leicester Arena with not only Storm adding the Cup to their trophy cabinet but North East Bulls also winning the Shield in the other competition as part of the Nationals event.
