Oscar Baldwin returns to the Sharks

B. Braun Sheffield Sharks have tonight confirmed their sixth signing of the new season is Oscar Baldwin.

The 22-year-old British forward is local to Sheffield coming from Grindleford in Hope Valley and is entering his second season with the Sharks.

Baldwin began his basketball career at the Juniors Sharks U18s and then spent two seasons playing for Hallam University in the BUCS basketball league under former Sharks assistant Ariel Parrucci.

“It’s great to have Oscar back on board,” said Sharks Head Coach Atiba Lyons. “This past season was a huge step in his development, and we will look to continue to nurture and grow that going into year two.

“With his size, athleticism, and ability to knock down the outside shot, he has all the tools it takes to become a productive player in this league.”

Oscar Baldwin joins Mike Tuck, Jordan Ratinho, Marcus Delpeche, Aaron Anderson and Joe Jr Mvuezolo as the Sharks continue to build their roster for the 2021-22 BBL season.

The Sharks open the season in the BBL Cup versus Cheshire Phoenix on Friday 24 September at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre but first will host a pre-season home match against Leicester Riders on 17 September.

Tickets are available via the Sharks Office on 0114 257 3180 or natasha.montgomery@thesheffieldsharks.com.
