Thirteen seasons since first signing for the Eagles as a graduate from Rider University, Eagles star Charles Smith returns to his home club for the 2012-13 season.
Following a stellar year with the club, including a haul of all four trophies and MVP awards at the BBL Cup Final and BBL Play Off Final, Smith returns with high hopes of doing it all again.
Smith averaged 17.5 points per game and was 38% from three point range in 2011-12, Eagles player/coach Fab Flournoy is hoping for more of the same this season from the mercurial talent.
‘It’s fantastic to be signing Charles back to the club. He’s been a key player in our success and he will play an instrumental role in helping us to retain last season’s form. Charles was a double MVP last season, in both the Cup and Play-Off Finals. He is our man for the big games, when in doubt we find Charles Smith and the Prince delivers!’
The club are looking to announce on further signings in the next 2/3 weeks in preparation for pre-season, including home based tournament at Sport Central on the 10th and 11th September 2012.
Details are being finalised with opposition and will be announced in the near future.
