Worcester Wolves Basketball Club is pleased to announce the re-signing of Alejandro Navajas for his second season with the team.
Last season Navajas made it to two nail biting BBL play-off semi-finals with the Worcester Wolves after the team enjoyed a 16 game unbeaten run towards the end of the campaign to finish fifth in the league. He says his focus this season is on winning silverware with the University of Worcester-owned side.
“I am happy to be back and be part of this wonderful organisation,” he said.
“I hope we can celebrate a title with our fans this upcoming season. Let’s go Wolves!”
The 6ft 7in Spanish forward previously experienced success with Spanish second division side Marin, helping them secure the league and cup double in the 2015/16 season.
Dale Ryan, the University of Worcester’s Director of Basketball, said: “We are very pleased that Alejandro has made the decision to return for another season with the Club.
“His performance, especially throughout the second half of last season and during the play-offs, was a key factor in many of our wins and overall success.”
“We will be looking for Alejandro to bring leadership, his trademark physical defence and propensity for making big game shots as we endeavour to bring a championship back to Worcester.
“I am sure that I share the sentiments of fans, in welcoming Alejandro back to the Wolves and the Wolfpack family.”
Navajas is the second player to return for the Wolves, after Ashton Khan recently re-signed for his third season, and will now join him and new recruit Brandon Parrish for the 2017/18 British Basketball campaign.
They will appear in their first game against London Lions at the University of Worcester Arena on Friday 29th September at 7.30pm.
