We are very proud to announce that ex-Hoods player, Liam Jefferson has been named head coach for the Team GB Maxibasketball +35 age group.
Liam, the 76th Hood, played during the 2016/17 season in Division 2 before moving on to great success as assistant coach with local rivals Loughborough Riders.
The Team GB Maxibasketball squads have had various camps over recent months, with a host of ex-Hoods players involved in the +40 category, as they prepare for the FIMBA European Maxibasketball Championships in Malaga, Spain next summer.
On hearing news of his appointment, Liam said: “I am extremely grateful to be appointed Head Coach for the Team GB Maxibasketball 35+ team. Across the programme we’re building some very talented, high-character teams that make it such an exciting time to be involved. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to lead the 35+ age group into the FIMBA European Championships next summer and firmly believe we can compete with some of the best across the continent.”
Huge congratulations for the Hoods family, Liam!
