The 6’2″ British guard is delighted to return to the Big Cats: “I’m very happy to be part of the Leopards for the 2019/20 season” he said.
“I made the choice to further my career in England and once coach [Thomas] Baker presented this opportunity it was a no brainer. Having previous experience at this club everyone from the staff to the fans made me feel at home. I’m very excited to get started and help build something here at Leopards.”
Baker is pleased to see Layne return to the Big Cats: “When the opportunity to bring Jerrel back to the club came about it was an easy decision for me” he said.
“Jerrel’s quality speaks for itself, he can single handily change a game in an instant and his ability to score the ball is something that that we needed. I am excited to bring Jerrel back to the club and I am confident that he will help us achieve our goals this season.”
