Eagles have won eight out of eight in Division Four (Midlands) since embarking upon their first season at senior level last October.

Doncaster filmmaker Holly, a student at Leeds Beckett University, said: “The documentary was filmed during the months prior to Eagles’ first game of the season.

“The name of the documentary comes from a quote said about Michael Jordan.

“He was unique among NBA players in that he had a special ‘Love of the Game Clause’ written into his contract, which allowed him to play basketball against anyone at anytime, anywhere, because of all the passion and hard work he puts into training and playing.

“This is something the players in Danum Eagles’ men’s team have in common with him and it is why they are half-way through the season undefeated.”
