Basketball captain has been named Milton Keynes Inspiring Sportsperson of the Year crowning a historic season.

    Basketball captain to Milton Keynes Breakers, Jordan Spenser, was named MVP as he helped MK Breakers become the first NBL Division 2 side to lift the National Cup back in January.

    Not content with just one trophy, Spencer would produce a magical performance in the NBL Division 2 South decider against Team Solent Kestrels to guide the Breakers to back-to-back promotions in their first two seasons.

    The trophies didn’t stop there, as Spencer was named MVP once more as the Breakers were crowned NBL Division 2 Play Off Winners, overcoming their old foes Solent Kestrels. Spencer then received national recognition as he was named MVP of NBL Division 2 South.

    After winning Inspiring Sportsperson of the Year, Spencer touched on the importance of succeeding in his hometown and inspiring future players. “I’m extremely honoured to receive this award, growing up in Milton Keynes and being able to achieve success in my hometown has always been a passion of mine and I’m happy I could do that with the MK Breakers.” Spenser said.

    “Not only being able to represent my family and the city of Milton Keynes, but also being able to inspire the next generation to fight obstacles and adversity in their way.” Spenser added.

    General Manager Josh Merrington said, “Jordan has been a huge asset to the MK Breakers and the wider community of Milton Keynes since he returned home to join the club in 2022.” He continued to say “He has led the team to great success on the court, earning back to back promotions, as well as becoming the first non-Division 1 team to win the National Cup in over 50 years. Off the court, Jordan has been very active in our schools and community programs, inspiring the young people of Milton Keynes.”
