The Eagles have finally agreed terms to bring back the explosive Seton Hall point guard Paul Gause to the North East, following a season away from the club in Slovakia and Morocco.

Gause was part of the 2011-12 quadruple winning Eagles, averaging 15 points per game for the Tyneside franchise. During his time at the club, the powerful guard quickly earned a reputation as one of the quickest players in the league with a passion for steals.

The club and agents have been talking through the summer in order to pave the way for a return, which happily came to fruition late last week.

Gause is excited to make his return; ‘I’ve played in a few European countries now and my best time was certainly in Newcastle, it feels like a home from home. I’m really looking forward to coming back and meeting old friends again. The team is shaping up well and I can’t wait to get Sport Central on their feet!’

Coach Fab Flournoy was pleased to add another key player to the Eagles 2013-14 roster; ‘We all know the kind of energy that Paul can bring to a team and he really adds well to the mix of talent we now have in place. It will be great to see Paul back in black and white’.


With more signings to be announced at the end of this week, the Eagles will be announcing up a number of friendly matches. These games will be the first chance to come and see the new look team in action.
