Manchester Giants have signed former Sheffield guard Samuel Toluwase ahead of this Sunday’s game against London Lions.
“I’ve been good friends with Yorick for a while and I know what he expects and what he wants, “said Toluwase.
“I’ve watched a few games and I feel like I can bring the intensity and leadership to help out. I never give up on a second chance shot and I’m a defensive stopper.
“You can come from nothing to something, it’s the team that works hardest and digs deep.
Meanwhile Giants’ CEO, John Dwan added, “It’s been a disappointing start to the season for everyone, but we are working hard behind the scenes to take the club forward.
The Nigerian-born Toluwase has previously played in Iceland, Italy and China – as well as landing at Surrey Scorchers last year.
