Mersey Tigers win BBL Trophy at O2 Arena

JDG Media client Mersey Tigers put their off-court woes behind them to win the BBL Trophy Final at The O2 Arena, defeating Guildford Heat 84-66.

The Tigers have been battling against adversity in recent weeks, with financial and venue problems hindering the club, who are still right up there in the hunt for the BBL Championship.

After losing the BBL Cup Final to Sheffield in January, Tony Garbelotto’s men were keen to bounce back, and they did just that, with captain Drew Sullivan winning the MVP accolade for man of the match after a superb performance.

JDG Media had two people courtside with the Tigers, covering the game via the club’s social media channels as well as providing reports for the official website, the Liverpool Echo and other Merseyside media outlets.

Managing Director James Gordon said: “We got involved with the Tigers in October and the partnership has certainly gone beyond our original expectations.

“We have become almost a part of the club, and the victory in London was certainly the perfect reward for the players, staff and fans who have stuck by the club despite the recent troubles.”
