Giants Men Sign Ex BBL and Irish Superleague Guard

Giants head coach Curtis Xavier has bolstered his back court with new veteran signing Scottie Summersgill from Anderson Town Tigers Basketball Club in Northern Ireland.

Summersgill spent two years in the BBL in the early 90's playing for Oldham Celtics, then moving across to Northern Ireland where he spent 16 years playing in the Irish Superleague for Star of the Sea in Belfast.

Scottie will be working on the Giants and Express Coaching Services community programme in the local schools and also helping coach some of the Giants junior teams in their training sessions and camps.

A club spokesman commented 'we are delighted to bring a player with Scottie's experience into the club. He is a great three point shooter and in very good physical condition. Scottie will no doubt contribute on the court at the point guard spot and help some of the younger guys out too'.
The Giants are due to announce another major new signing next week as the team prepares for the new season.
