Great Britain internationals, Whitney Allen and Ella Clark return to the Riders for the 2020-21 season.
Allen will compete in the WBBL alongside working as a children’s social worker. Last season the former Charnwood player and coach provided the WBBL side with leadership, hustle, energy and defensive versatility.
“I’m looking forward to seeing last year’s players and excited for the fresh new faces,” commented Whitney, “I enjoyed last season and it was a no brainer to come back”.
Clark provided the Riders with length and versatility last season. During the 2019-20 season, the GB forward averaged 11.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in the WBBL Championship.
Ella commented: “I’m looking forward to getting back on the court with the team after such a long break”.
“Last season ended abruptly, just as we were starting to find some consistency. We obviously finished on a high note with the trophy win, so hopefully we can build on that this year”.
WBBL Head Coach Jesper Sundberg commented: “We are lucky to have Whitney and Ella back this season as they bring size and versatility to the team. Whitney with her ability to play and defend multiple positions and Ella’s skillset around the rim and outside shooting.”
“We get two experienced players that can help the team build on last year’s success.”
Allen and Clark join Holly Winterburn as the Riders finalise the team for the 2020-21 WBBL season.
