“I am really looking forward to joining the Cheshire Phoenix this season. I am bringing my experience to help win as many championships as possible. I’m excited to be teaming up with Big Mike again having played together at Plymouth and I’ve known Coach Ben and James Brice for a long time, going back to the Chester Jets basketball camp about 16 years go. Coach is really good at recruiting and I’m excited to see what other players will be joining Mike, Danny and myself.

Cheshire has some of the best fans in the league and I can’t wait until the season starts to hear them cheering us on.”

“Will is somebody that we have always wanted to see at the Phoenix. He has a unique skill set and we really believe that we will see the best he has to offer with us. I know Will is ready to take on a bigger role here than he had this year with Lions and I’m looking forward to working with him to be the player he knows he can be.”
