Game in mourn­ing af­ter death

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

A num­ber of bas­ket­ball matches have been post­poned this week­end due to the sad and un­timely pass­ing of the Nep­tune and Ire­land in­ter­na­tional bas­ket­ball player, Liam Chan­dler.

The 18-year-old played a huge part in Nep­tune’s Cup-win­ning tre­ble ear­lier this year and on many oc­ca­sions wore the Ir­ish jer­sey with pride at in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ments and Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships – most re­cently rep­re­sent­ing his coun­try at un­der-18 level in Tallinn, Es­to­nia.

Yes­ter­day Bas­ket­ball Ire­land ex­tended sin­cere con­do­lences to Chan­dler’s fam­ily, friends, club and team-mates. A few mo­ments si­lence will be held in his mem­ory at all bas­ket­ball events this com­ing week­end. May he rest in peace.
