Nottingham Wildcats are returning another member of their historic title winning team after confirming that guard Lisa Greenaway is back on board for the forthcoming defence of their WBBL Championship.
Greenaway is delighted to be re-signing for 2016-17 and declared, “It’s so exciting to be part of a league that each year, gets better and better, as all teams push one another in pursuit of success.
“I’m sure this year will be no different and it will be really interesting to see how we cope with the challenges ahead of us, whilst continuing to build on the progress we made that resulted in the successes of last season.
“It’s great that we have so many returning players this year who contributed to those wins, especially as we are defending two pieces of silverware.
“That being said, there is no doubt that the last game of our season was a disappointing note to end on [losing against Team Northumbria in the Molten WBBL Play-Off Final], but as a club it’s made us more determined and I’m sure our new team mates are up for the roller coaster ride the 2016-17 season will no doubt be!”
With his roster set, head coach Dave Greenaway is relieved that continuity will be a big factor now the likes of his namesake have returned.
He stated, “Having Lisa back with us this season is great testament to the club, as we have been able to retain the core group of British players from last season.
“Lisa’s commitment and contribution over the past years have been of great value to us as a team and she has been an integral part in the long journey that brought us our first league success last season.”
Next weekend, Greenaway and his team will defend their Betty Codona Classic on their home floor at the Nottingham Wildcats Arena. Click here for more details and for tickets.
