BASKETBALL: Delme Herriman is on a high after sharing in England's Commonwealth Games medal bonanza.
The 6ft 6in Widnesian basketball player, who spends time coaching in the borough, helped the national team win bronze in Melbourne.
England beat Nigeria 80-57 in the bronze-medal match but were kept waiting. The start was delayed by 45 minutes due to damaged equipment in the arena and England were held 15-15 in the first quarter.
But Manchester Magic's Herriman played a key role as they took full charge in the second. He scored six points of the 30 points accrued to just 12 in reply for a commanding 45-27 lead at the break.
England kept the pressure on in the third quarter which they won by seven points to go into the last 67-42 in front.
Herriman and his England colleagues had won pool matches against Barbados (75-59) and South Africa (95-53) to qualify - despite losing 63-84 to New Zealand in between. But they were beaten 101-75 in the semis by Australia, who went on to take gold.
Herriman, 32, is one of England's most-capped players and last year's championship success with Chester Jets earned the first title of his pro career.
