The England Men's team is made up of an exciting young core with the likes of Matthew Bryan-Amaning
England Men’s Head Coach Paul James has announced his 17 man training squad for this summer’s friendlies. The training roster is as follows (to be cut to 12);
England Senior Men’s Basketball Team 2010 Roster
Ogo Adegboye, 6’0, 185lbs, St Bonaventures University (USA)
Taner Adu, 6’2, Essex Pirates
Chris Ayer, 6’10, 230lbs, Springfield Armor (USA)
Devan Bailey, 6’2, 190lbs, Central Connecticut State University (USA)
Matthew Bryan-Amaning, 6’9, 240lbs, University of Washington (USA)
Eric Boateng, 6’10, 257lbs, Arizona State University (USA)
Sam Cricelli, 6’7, 200lbs, Worthing Thunder
Dan Clark, 6’10, 240lbs, Estudiantes (ESP)
Ben Eaves, 6’7, 225lbs, Rhode Island University (USA)
Matt Guymon, 6’5, 190lbs, unattached
Ashley Hamilton, 6’7, 210lbs, Loyola Marymount University (USA)
Joe Ikhinmwin, 6’7, 230lbs, Seminole State College (USA)
James Jones, 6’4, Everton Tigers
Tayo Ogedengbe, Guildford Heat
Justin Robinson, 6’2, 190lbs, Rider University (USA)
Colin Sing, Essex Pirates
Morakinyo Williams, 7’0, 270lbs Duquesne University (USA)
As expected, a fair few of these players make up the GB U23’s team (or invitees-Adegboye, Bailey, Bryan-Amaning, Eaves, Guymon, Hamilton, Ikhinmwin, Robinson and Sing) and are an exciting, young group.
Chris Ayer is new to me, a big man playing out in D-league, and apparently born in the States, so must have an alternative link to the team. There are still a few guys not on this list I would like to see with at least an invite to the training camp, but overall this looks like a good young core to build around and serve as a feeder system into the GB Senior Men’s team.
Do you like our work?
We have a tiny favour to ask. In 2018 we set out to make Hoopsfix sustainable by building our relationship directly with our readers. Up until now, Hoopsfix has been creating editorials, videos and podcasts to provide sorely missing coverage of the British game and its distinct culture and community.
We have funded Hoopsfix with our freelance work creating basketball media, but sadly that means not only does it fall behind our client’s priorities, but some of those clients are the same organisations we need to report objectively on putting us in a conflicted position.
We want to devote more time to our mission of helping British basketball reach its potential, and produce even more content for the basketball community by making Hoopsfix a sustainable 100% independent business funded directly by our readers through Patreon.
If everyone who enjoys our content chose to support us, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $3 per month, you can support Hoopsfix – and it only takes a minute.
We are tremendously honoured and humbled to have a community of people who value what we do, and we look forward to being at the forefront of the British game as it continues to evolve.
