The Brighton Bears coach, Nick Nurse, believes experience will be decisive when his team face Newcastle Eagles tomorrow in the BBL Trophy final at the Brighton Arena, even though the Eagles gained a narrow Championship win over the Bears last weekend.

In January Nurse's team won the BBL Cup - and if they win the Trophy tomorrow they will become the fourth team to win all four major domestic titles, following Kingston, Chester and London.

Newcastle, by contrast, have won nothing since their forerunners Sunderland took the National Cup in 1991.

Nurse said: "It would be a nice achievement to look back over our history and say our club won this and won that. But all the players we have now are concerned with is winning this one."
