A Londoner by birth who came through the Hackney Academy scene. Now an adopted Geordie, in his 16th consecutive season with the Eagles, Newcastle is his only professional BBL club after joining in 2004.

A player who has improved year on year, the power forward has been involved in every single one of Newcastle’s trophy-winning seasons and is one of the most decorated players in the history of British basketball.

He’s averaged double figure point returns per game in the last nine seasons in a row and last season contributed 12.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He is the Eagles’ all-time leading rebounder and last season was honoured by the club for his services on and off the court.
