Members of the Basketball Team meet Moothergoose Montessori at Wolfetone Community Centre: David Baker, Coach, Michael Goj, Conor Gallagher and Alex Zuran with Lua Pulido, Michael Byrne, Andrew Lee, Beibhin McGuinness, Ryan Baker, Mark Killey, Óisín McGuinness, Sinead Stalton.

The little pupils at Mother Goose Montessori in Bray got to do slam dunks, lay-ups and a different kind of dribbling at Wolfe Tone Youth Club last week.

Basketball players from the Swords Thunder club came to visit the children and do some drills with them.

It was a real case of David and Goliath with the young sports fans wearing out the excellent basketball players.

'One of the dads is a coach of the Swords team,' explained teacher Sinead Stalton.

It was that father, David Baker, who arranged for the players to come and see the kids.

'They had an absolute blast,' said Sinead. Although a native of Bray, Sinead lived and went to university in America so is a big basketball fan.

The Montessori school is located at Wolfe Tone and District Youth Club. For more information call (087) 3888689.
