Leopards add Daniel

IT’S one in, one out as Leopards prepare for Sunday’s game against Manchester Magic at the Brentwood Centre, tip-off 4pm.
Guard/forward Luke Mascall-Wright has moved to a club in Italy but the Big Cats have quickly swooped to sign German big man Daniel Wagener as they look to consolidate their place in the play-off zone.
Although Wagener is a different type of player, the 6’8″ forward comes out of Frederick Maryland College in the State, and coach Thomas Baker is excited about his new signing: “Daniel will be a great addition to our team” he said.
“His size and strengths will provide us with cover behind Lee but his mobility also gives us a chance to play him and Lee together which will allow us to go bigger tactically against some teams.
It is something I have been looking for all season and it is great that we have managed to sort this out before the deadline, I feel he will have a real positive impact for us.”
Wagener is expected to make his debut in Saturday’s trip to Derby Trailblazers before Leopards return to the Brentwood Centre the following day to face basement side Magic.
Leopards will stage their normal pre-game coaching sessions for youngsters on Sunday. Book through this website of call 07828 470015 for more information.
