Portuguese International Soares joins Hoods

The Nottingham Hoods are delighted to announce the signing of Diogo Soares, fresh from the u20 European Championships.

The 6’4″ point guard represented Portugal at the Europeans and will be one of our scholar athletes with our partner, Nottingham Trent University.

Have a look at some Diogo’s highlights on our YouTube account from 20th August:-


On moving to the UK, Diogo commented, “I am happy and grateful for the opportunity given to me by the Hoods to play pro abroad for the first time. I’m excited to team up with guys full of potential as well as experience, both players and coaches. I hope to improve my game and acquire more experience, while accomplishing tam goals and objectives.”

Head Coach Ben Stanley added, “Diogo is a sharp shooter with a good understanding of the game. We missed out on him last year due to COVID but we’re happy to have him this year. His recent experience at the u20s will have helped him prepare for this year and we look forward to seeing what he can do.”
