Worthing Thunder is delighted to announce that Zaire Taylor has been appointed as Director of Basketball Operations for Worthing Thunder.

Zaire played a valuable part in the team last season and towards the end of the campaign was responsible, in conjunction with Daniel Gayle, for bringing the final season-ending squad together which resulted in Thunder becoming National Play-Off Champions.

Frank Gainsbury, Club Director, said: “Zaire has been a instrumental part of the club since joining us last season and has been integral in driving Thunder forward; both on and off court. His new appointment is a reward for his dedication and commitment to the club and, in conjunction with the new head coach; he will be responsible for all aspects connected with the recruitment and organisation of the playing squad for the forthcoming season. A number of top players have already been lined up to join us for next season and these will be announced in the very near future.”
