EJ Stephens joins the Phoenix!

We are pleased to announce the signing of American guard EJ Stephens.

The 6’3 guard spent 4 years at Lafayette University between 2017-2021 before graduating in 2022 from the University of Minnesota as a starter, where he averaged 10.2ppg shooting 38% from the 3pt line.

EJ will make his professional career debut for the Phoenix and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity.
“I am beyond excited to be able to join the Cheshire Phoenix organization. This is an amazing opportunity and I am so blessed to have this great organization believe in me and my abilities. I am looking forward to getting to work with my teammates and staff, and to be able to build upon the great success this team had last season. I promise I will give everything I have and work everyday to help this team win even more games! I am looking forward to getting to Ellesmere Port to meet everyone and I can’t not wait to get to work!”

Head Coach Ben Thomas
“I’m happy to have EJ onboard next season. Firstly on the court he can really score the ball in a lot of different ways whilst always playing tough defence, but the thing that most stands out with EJ is his enthusiasm and attitude, he is a great team mate and I know he is really motivated for this opportunity.”
