Leeds Force Snap Up Toluwase

Leeds Force have today announced the signing of 6’3” guard Samuel Toluwase for the 2017/18 BBL season.

Toluwase, already a BBL Playoff champion with DBL Sheffield Sharks in 2016, joins Force from Manchester Giants where he averaged 14.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game whilst shooting 39% from the perimeter last season.

Leeds Force Head Coach, Mika Turunen, is looking forward to see what Toluwase can deliver.  He said “Samuel has great level of experience within the BBL.  He is a true leader who will provide a great example to his teammates.  I am really pleased that we have been able to sign Samuel as I feel he will push this team forward and provide the fans with some great moments”

Toluwase will combine with BBL rookie Eric Childress and Latvian Ingus Bankevics to create a tough back court on both ends of the floor.  Toluwase will join up with his teammates in the coming weeks as the preparations start for the new BBL season.  Season tickets for what is set to be the most exciting season in the club’s history are available by emailing info@leedsforce.co.uk
