Leeds Force are delighted to announce Allie Fullah as their first signing for the 2017/18 BBL season.
Fullah graduated Charleston Southern in the Big South conference, in NCAA Division One, where he averaged 4.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in just a little over 13 minutes of action per game.
Leeds Force CEO, Mark Mills, is excited by the prospect of having Fullah in the Force roster. He said “Allie is an impressive talent that can make a major impact on both ends of the floor. He hasn’t had the opportunity to truly show what he can do in the BBL. This year is his year to have a break out season. The Force fans are in for a treat with Allie on the court”
Since graduation the 6’8” centre has played for both London Lions and Surrey Scorchers. Where he averaged 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game in limited minutes for the latter. Fullah who is known for his tough defense and impressive rebounding is eager to get started with Leeds Force. He said “I’m looking forward to a successful season at Leeds. I promise the Force fans that I will work hard every second I am on the floor. I feel that if we get it right as a team there is no reason why we can’t reach the playoffs and even more”.
Plenty of work is going on behind the scenes as Leeds Force look to build a roster that can challenge for honours in the fast approaching BBL season. Fans will get their first opportunity to see the new look Force roster when they take on Bradford Dragons in a preseason friendly on Sunday 10th September at the Carnegie Sports Arena. Tickets for the that game will go on sale shortly through the club website.
