Wesley returns for Leopards

As Leopards prepare for the weekend’s Essex Classic at the Brentwood Centre, the Big Cats are delighted to announce the return of guard Wesley Moore.
The youngster joined the Big Cats last season as part of their link up with Oaklands Academy, and having graduated from the Hertfordshire college he has now moved to Leopards’ new partners at University of Essex.
Moore proved to be a valuable member of the Leopards’ team which finished fourth in NBL Division Two, and he is looking forward linking up with our new roster as we prepare for life in the top flight once again:
“Returning to Leopards this season is a great opportunity especially playing in Division One where it will be very competitive” said Moore.
“Most of the guys are new so it’s exciting to play with them and grow as a team throughout the season.”
Head coach Thomas Baker is delighted to retain the services of Moore: “Wesley has matured a lot in recent years” he said.
“I have known him since he was a junior playing in county teams as an under-13. Fast forward a few years and He was my captain in the EABL for Oaklands last season where under his stewardship we had some really successful moments.
“He had to remain patient for his opportunity at times last season for the Leopards but I feel he has huge potential and I am really excited to be working with him again and being a part of his journey as a student-athlete.
“I feel his attitude to get better can not be questioned and he will add to our young core with the desire and willingness to give his all every time he steps on the floor.”
