🚨🚨 Coach Announcement 🚨🚨

After a successful Play-Off winning season last year, Daniel Gayle has accepted a post in the USA and he leaves the Club with our grateful thanks and the very best wishes for a successful career in the future.

As a result Worthing Thunder is pleased to announce that Josh Goddard will be appointed as player coach for the 2018-19 season.

Josh is a fully qualified level 2 coach who has quickly demonstrated his commitment both on and off court and with previous coaching spells with Solent Kestrels Juniors Organisation.

Frank Gainsbury, Club Chairman, commented: “Josh is a young and hungry coach who has earned enormous respect from his fellow players in the short time he has been with the club. Thunder has never hesitated to offer young coaches and players the opportunity to develop their skills within the organisation and we have already seen the potential that Josh has to develop a long and successful career as a coach. His playing days are, of course, far from over and the role of player-coach supported by the senior players within the squad is an exciting opportunity for Josh to embark on a coaching career with one of the best clubs in the National Basketball League.”

Josh commented: “I’m extremely grateful to Worthing Thunder for giving me this opportunity. For Zaire to show this kind of confidence in me means a huge amount. We are just working out the finer details to finish putting a team together so that we can represent Worthing well this coming season.”
