The Leicester Riders are happy to announce that they have signed former GB guard, Flinder Boyd for the start of the new season.
Boyd, a former Newcastle Eagle, returns to the club he began his BBL career with and plays once again, under the tutelage of guard-turned-coach, Rob Paternostro:
“Last time Flinder was with us, we really respected the way he played the game. He’s a team player who plays hard 100% of the time in both practice and in games.”
“He’s a really good basketball player and I’m trying to get as many good basketball players on the roster as possible. That’s always been my goal. When you have an opportunity to get a good player who fits in with what you’re trying to do, you go out and do it.”
Although Flinder is joining the club towards the end of the pre-season, he is no less ready to jump into the action and fans in attendance at tonight’s Leicester Riders – Leeds Carnegie fixture are likely to see Boyd once again in Riders colours.
