Swifts basketball team have sponsored a new tournament MVP trophy this year.  Each team after each game will vote on their opponents MVP and the Court Managers will collate this information.  On Sunday the player with the most votes will be awarded the trophy which they keep for a year and then return.  Their names will be engraved.  Swifts player, Mark Stacey, wrote a brief bio below.

Graham Brown - a giant of a man at 6ft 6" he was a stand-out basketball player and a keen footballer, but for many he will be remembered as a guiding light of youth sport in Surrey.

Graham had played National League basketball for Team Talbot.  In turn he started Woodhatch Basketball Club who won the Surrey League and Rose Bowl titles.

Also a teacher at Albury Manor Junior School in Merstham from 1972-1975, it was during this time at Woodhatch School (now Reigate School) in the last 1970's / 80's that Graham helped found the District Cross Country competition and he became heavily involved in inter-school athletics.

He also took Woodhatch School Basketbal team to a record 3 unbeaten seasons in the Surrey Schools basketball league of which the record still stands today.

"He was quite a character, he was so tall that you just sort of remembered him"

" He was well known and respected by thousands of people"

His stepson, Neil Duffield, said "he was in many respects a man's man, he was bit of a legend in terms of how he fought (his illness) to the end.

"He was a loved and respected by many - not just in basketball"
