Phoenix take Touray

Posted on BBL Media

Cheshire Phoenix can confirm the signing of the London-born Alassan Touray.

The guard has been playing in the Danish Basketligaen over the past three years and most recently for SISU Copenhagen, where he averaged 10 points per game.

He becomes the second signing of the week for the Phoenix, following on from the arrival of Orlan Jackman.

Head Coach Ben Thomas said: “Alassan has a great attitude and is really motivated to have a successful season with us.

"He gives us options at both the shooting and point guard position offensively and can defend multiple positions with his size and athleticism. His versatility will benefit the Nix hugely”.

The player himself added: “I am looking forward to playing for Cheshire Phoenix, not only on the court but in the community.

"I was born in London, but I never really got to live there as I was raised in the city of Copenhagen, Denmark.

"Returning to my country of birth is exciting and with hard work and dedication to the programme, I am sure we will be successful," concluded Touray.
