Pete is the founder and the chairman of the Yateley Silverbacks. He has won numerous titles and awards during his 19 years in the Wessex league playing for 3 different clubs - some as a player and some as a player/coach. Pete is a 5 times Silverbacks Players' Player of the Year and the 2015 MVP. He is the England U16 Team Manager/Pathway coordinator and has led the national team as Head of delegation at 3 European Championships. The bronze medal won in Macedonia in 2014 is the highlight of his basketball career.
Pete has also coached school teams to 2 National titles, a London Borough Championship and has just set up and coaches the Silverbacks U12s. These days on court Pete is a steady point guard who's drives to the basket and scoring are becoming rarer and rarer, with too many minutes on his rebuilt knees, but he still claims to be the best passer in the Wessex league! #

Standing at 6ft 4, Alex is one of the “Big Men” of the team.
He joined the Silverbacks family in Feb 2015 at the young age of 37. Alex initially
joined us to lose weight & regain his fitness in a friendly team based environment.
He had no ideas that after 20 years since playing basketball at school, He would
rekindle his enjoyment of the game & become one of the team. Something he admits is entirely down to the
members of the Silverbacks family & their perfect balance of fun & desire.
Alex is now an established player. He is also the clubs registrar, webmaster, a qualified table official & has become one of the clubs allocated referee's.
