Dave Greenaway has been honoured for leading Nottingham Wildcats to their historic first ever WBBL Championship by being named the 2015-16 Molten Ed Percival WBBL Coach of the Year.
The play-caller’s accomplishment was recognised in the voting undertaken by WBBL clubs, with Nottingham having come within a few points and seconds from completing a fabulously flawless league campaign – only a tight loss on the last weekend of the regular season denied Wildcats a very special feat.
Greenaway helped Nottingham end an agonising wait of four decades to finish top of the UK’s league table and having also presided over a success at the Betty Codona Classic during March, it’s certainly turning into a super 40th anniversary celebration for the club.

Having secured the prestigious individual accolade which has been re-named in honour of the late former WBBL Chairman Ed Percival, Greenaway is now looking to mastermind a WBBL silverware double when he leads his players into this weekend’s Molten WBBL Play-Off Final at The 02 in London.
He will be presented with his award on Sunday by the family of the late Ed Percival and the showdown with Team Northumbria will be available live on the BBC red button and via BBC Sport online.
Tip-off is at 6pm and follows on from the Molten BBL Play-Off Final at 3.30pm.
