London Lions have confirmed that Londoner, Sam Toluwase who has been with the team for the last week has been signed on for the season.

The vastly experienced veteran has had spells across Europe in Italy and Iceland as well as a short stint in China. He has plenty of BBL experience having played with Manchester after being part of the Playoff winning Sheffield Sharks in 2016 and the BBL Trophy winning City Royals last season.

Lions boss Vince Macaulay commented, “Ive known Sam for a long time and I know he just wants to compete and play hard, he has matured and understands his role within a team concept, he will see time with us especially defensively as he savours those challenges”.

Toluwase made some crucial scores in the Lions winning run at the weekend’s British All Stars Championship whilst also matching up very well against bigger players.

The Lions are in BBL Cup action on Saturday away in Bristol before they begin their home campaign next Wednesday versus the Plymouth Raiders. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.co.uk
