Leicester Riders continue to build for the upcoming 2019/20 season as Josh Ward-Hibbert returns for the club for a fourth season.
Ward-Hibbert, recent Loughborough College graduate, will return to the Riders after graduation next season on a new deal for his fourth year with the club.
The Nottingham native transferred to the Riders from Derby Trailblazers and has helped the club to multiple trophies alongside grabbing three BUCS Championships with the Loughborough men’s team!
Head Coach Paternostro is glad to have Josh back in the line-up: “Josh had an excellent season for us last year, his game continues to develop and was a very important part to our team during the regular season and in the Playoffs.
“I thought he came up with some big plays in key moments in a lot of important games this season and is the type of player that can energise the fans with his all action style of play.
“He rebounds well and has an ability to score in many different ways so we are looking forward to utilising his many skills again this season.”
Ward-Hibbert will re-join the team in preseason after a busy summer of improvement and is looking forward to the challenge: “It is great to sign to play in Leicester again next season. The last few years have been great getting back into basketball at the professional level and I look forward to another great year next year, moving forwards from this season!”
