We are pleased to announce that Alex Owumi (6’5” guard / forward) has signed with the Club and, subject to obtaining a Border Agency visa, will be suiting up with Thunder for the forthcoming season.
Alex Owumi played last season for Surrey Scorchers averaging 10.7 points, 5.17 rebounds and 2.47 assists per game. Previously Alex turned out for London Lions (2015 -17) Worcester Wolves (2012 2015).
Alex is also a published author of a number of books recording details of his experiences playing in war-torn Libya.
Alex commented: “I’ve followed Worthing last season, and been in communications with Zaire during that time. He’s told me his vision for the club and what he’s trying to achieve, and it’s something I’m excited to be a part of. I’ve also spoken with Josh, and he seems like a young coach with a lot of potential.”
Zaire commented: “When you have an opportunity to sign a player of Alex Owumi’s skill set it’s an easy decision. Aside from the fact he’s one of my best friends, and his talent, he gives us a guy with class and has always been the perfect professional that these young guys can grow from, and learn from, on and off the court, what being a professional is all about.”
