Shane Walker Heads Overseas, Playing in Bahrain

Shane Walker has headed overseas to continue his pro career after signing with Al-Ittihad in Bahrain following three seasons at Leicester Riders.

The England international – who competed at this year’s Commonwealth Games – helped the Riders to consecutive trebles in the BBL, but has now departed ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Walker graduated from Loyola University in 2012 before turning pro in Greece before spells in Cyprus, Holland, Morocco and France with a short stint at Plymouth Raiders in between.

The 30-year-old joined the Riders in 2015 – going on to win eight trophies in three seasons – and now returns overseas.

Al-Ittihad finished 8th in the Bahrain Premier League last season with a 12-12 record, missing out on the playoffs.

    Is he still there? I thought I’d see how he was getting on, but didn’t find any mention of him on (which is where the Bahrain league details are). Does anyone know who he plays for at the moment?
