“We are really pleased to welcome Richard to the club on a full time basis and add to our staff. We are keen to tap into his previous experience of dealing with businesses to increase revenues across the club and to drive the club further,  on and off the court. We know he has the best interest of the club at heart and we can’t wait to get going.”


“I’m honoured to join the Cheshire Phoenix, having grown up in the area and being involved in the basketball community I know how important the club is to the fans.  The opportunity to work with Ben and James and help continue to grow this ambitious club back to to the top of the BBL is something I’m very passionate about. In recent years under the direction of the current management, the club has made important steps to a winning culture and I’m confident that my own experience and knowledge can help the club move further in that direction.”
