The young basketball stars at Ilkeston Outlaws have been given a slam-dunking new kit thanks to Trent Barton and its revamped Ilkeston Flyer service.

The bus company has become a key sponsor of the two under-12s teams, which welcome around 40 players aged seven to 12 every Friday in Kirk Hallam.

Coach Kevin Hubbard said: “It’s great to have an Ilkeston brand associated with the club, and our teams will be the smartest players in the league. It all helps to bring in kids to learn skills and develop teamwork and respect for themselves and each other.”

Trent Barton spokesman Jordan Kemp said: “Since 1966 the Outlaws have built a wonderful community club. As part of that community, we are delighted to be on their side.”
