Surrey Scorchers are delighted to announce the signing of Quincy Taylor for the 2018-19 BBL Championship season. The point-guard represented Scorchers during the 2016-17 campaign and was the recipient of the fans’ MVP award.
After representing UAB Blazers and Longwood Lancers at College Level, the American had a brief spell in the BBL with Cheshire Phoenix Prior, to joining Scorchers.
Averaging 15.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in his previous spell, Taylor remains a huge favourite with supporters at Surrey Sports Park – home of the Scorchers.
Joining captain Tayo Ogedengbe, Taylor is Coach Creon Raftopoulos’ second signing for the 2018-19 season, with plenty more on the way.
“I can’t wait to play at Surrey Sports Park in front of the Scorchers fans again, they showed us such great support throughout the entire season,” stated Taylor.
“I’ve spoken to the Coach and understand his goals for the season, and I want to be a part of that. I know we can achieve great things, so I’m really looking forward to it and can’t wait to get back out on court.”
Scorchers head into the season following an 11-game winning run on home court and have a number of new partners to share in the excitement of the season ahead, including Merrist Wood College who are the official sponsor of Quincy Taylor for the season ahead.
“It’s great to have a local college support for the upcoming season,” stated the player.
“Coming through the College system, education was a huge part of my route into basketball so I’m glad we can raise awareness for such a fantastic college.”
Merrist Wood is a 400-acre, multimaward winning College specialising in the land-based industries.
Tickets are on sale Friday 10th August at midday for Scorchers 18/19 individual game and season tickets. First up for Scorchers is the visit of Glasgow Rocks in a rematch of the BBL Play Off Quarter-Final of the 2017/18 season.
