Leeds Force part ways with Coach Newby

Leeds Force today announced that they have parted company with Head Coach Matt Newby.

After three years at the helm and having helped Leeds establish themselves in the BBL, Coach Newby will move onto new challenges as the club looks to move onto a new chapter in its history.

With a combined league record of 31 wins and 71 losses Coach Newby guided Leeds Force to their first ever Play-Offs berth in 2016 and has secured himself an important place in the club’s history.

Leeds Force CEO, Mark Mills said “I want to thank Matt for all his hard work over the past three years and without him we wouldn’t be where we are.

“He approaches the game with a passion that is unrivalled and is one of the most driven people I have met.

“However, the time has come for both Matt and the club to move in different directions. Everyone at the club wishes Matt all the best for his future and we have no doubt that he will bring wins to wherever he coaches.”

Leeds Force will now start the search to find a new coach in time for the new season as they look to improve on their 11th place finish last season. Player recruitment is already underway and the club hopes that fans are excited to see the new look Force take to the court in September.
