Cheshire Jets Coach John Lavery has moved to replace last season’s MVP Jeremy Bell with the signing of 6’4” guard Adam Brown, a native of San Antonio, Texas, who represented the Houston Cougars [University of Houston] in NCAA1 for the last two years.  Adam finished as the team’s second-leading scorer with an average of 12.6 points per game, and 4th in the entire league in 3 point goal percentage at 42.3%.

Head Coach Lavery said;

 “I am really pleased we have secured the signing of Adam this season.  At 6'4" he'll be one of the taller guards in our league.  He has a great outside game, but with his height he has the capability to go inside as well. He will bring with him a tireless work ethic, precision passing and perimeter shooting, lockdown defence and a high basketball IQ”

He added;

“Adam is outstandingly hard-working and he plays on both ends of the floor. He has some big shoes to fill at the guard spot, replacing   last season’s MVP of the league.  But I have no doubt that he will rise to this challenge and have a tremendous season.  For such a young guy he is a born leader on the floor – so I'm really looking forward to working with him"

Brown said;

“My targets for the season are quite simple –learning the system, doing my job to the best of my ability and hopefully helping the Jets to win a championship!!

He also had a message for Jets fans, as he added;

“I consider it an honour and a privilege to become a Cheshire Jet. I am very excited and looking forward to representing you this upcoming season. I will do everything in my power to do you proud!!!! Thank you for having me!!

The signing of Brown is the latest piece in the jigsaw that John Lavery is putting together for his debut season as a BBL coach, and the Jets will be announcing further additions in the very near future.
