Dru Spinks and Michael Darlow confirmed as Storm’s coaching team for the 2022/2023 season


We are delighted to announce that Dru Spinks will be returning as Head Coach for the upcoming campaign.

Spinks, who will be entering his 4th season as the club’s Head Coach, has been a key contributor to the club’s rise to being one of the top sides in the National Basketball League. Spinks has led the side to two Play-off Finals out of two, narrowly missing out last season to Team Solent Kestrels. Over the three years, Spinks has worked tirelessly to improve the standards of the club on and off the court and will be key for the future of the club going forward.

Key to our progress has been Assistant Coach Michael Darlow and we are equally pleased to announce that Michael will also return for the 2022/2023 season.

In the past 4 seasons, Michael has worked very closely with Dru in plotting the Club's progress and this includes his coaching of the University of Hertfordshire Storm team that will again complete in men's Division 3 of the National Basketball League this coming season. If anyone is interested in studying and playing for the University of Hertfordshire and Hemel Storm, please reach out to Michael.

We thank them for their incredible commitment and wish them continued success.
