College team is on the ball; WIDNEY MANOR ROAD.

A COLLEGE basketball team is cock-a-hoop after clocking up 10 straight victories.

Solihull Sixth Form College at Widney Manor Road, Solihull, opened its basketball academy last year.

Since then, the team has slam dunked its way to triumph after triumph and has just Moulton College 78-75 at home to stay top of the British Colleges National Conference Midlands.
