Worthing Thunder are delighted to announce the signing of Kalil Irving for 2018/19 season.

Kalil played last season for Barking Abbey in the NBL Division 1 then finished the season off with Surrey Scorchers.

Irving previously played for Scorchers during the 2016/17 season and the forward spent three seasons prior to this with the Worcester Wolves between 2012 and 2016 and was part of the side who won the BBL Play-Offs and the BBL Trophy in 2014 playing alongside Zaire Taylor and Alex Owumi.

Josh commented : “We’re happy to have Kalil on board. I remember watching him on TV along with Zaire and Alex win the trophy in 2014. To think 60% of that starting line up that won 2 BBL Medals that year would 4 years later play in the NBL together is mad. This should be an exciting year here at Worthing.”

Kalil commented: “I’m looking forward to joining the team, and playing alongside Alex and Zaire once again. I had the opportunity to play in the Thunder Dome, and the fans were amazing last season. I’m excited to be a part of the culture that’s being created here, and this upcoming season.”
