Phoenix snap up Riley

Posted on BBL Media

Cheshire Phoenix are pleased to announce the signing of Malcolm Riley.

The 6’5” forward joins the Phoenix from rivals DBL Sharks Sheffield, where he averaged 16 points and 5 rebounds per game, shooting 42% from the 3 point line.

"I'm excited," Riley said of his move to Cheshire.

"A new beginning. I like the direction Cheshire is heading in. We have added some very good pieces in the off season and this was something I can see myself being a part of.

"I feel we can do something special this upcoming year."

Head coach Ben Thomas added, "It's great to have a player like Malcolm on board; not only is he a crafty scorer around the basket but one of the best three point shooters in the league.

"I'm sure that with a year of experience in this league already, he will have a standout season for us here at the Nix."

Riley joins Raheem May-Thompson, Andrew Bachman, Orlan Jackman, CJ Gettys and Alassan Touray in the new look Phoenix ahead of the 2017-18 season.

Season tickets still available for September, just contact info@cheshirephoenix.com for more information.
