Hesson said:” “It really means a lot to be playing for England. I have been watching the Games since I was a child and to be competing in my hometown for England is something I never imagined, but I am looking forward to it. Personally, and as a team, we are hoping to get a gold medal so that’s what we are preparing for.”

Shanice Beckford-Norton added: “It’s a privilege to be representing England at the Commonwealth Games, especially since it’s one of the world’s biggest multi-sport events and even better because we have a great chance of medalling.

“Through the preparatory periods of this and last summer, we have learnt a lot about 3×3 Basketball and what’s needed to win. Stef Collins has put in a lot of work to get us the information that we need, we have a great squad of talented players and I trust in our plan.”
