King’s Lynn Fury have made another huge signing ahead of their new season in Division Four Midlands of the National Basketball League.
Canadian-born Ethan Allen is a six-foot-five combo guard and becomes Fury’s second contracted player on a semi-professional deal.
Allen first moved to Norfolk aged 17 where he played his first National League game for the club in 2012.
His unique talent accompanied by his athletic prowess managed to gain him court time, despite his tender age.
After leaving Fury, he was awarded a place at a professional Italian Academy during 2015.
Allen returned to Fury in January last year and was voted defensive player of the year, with his performances key to turn around the season with an 11-game undefeated streak.
“I’m excited to be working with the coaching staff at Fury,” said Allen.
“Mike Ebanks and head coach James Bamfield have done an amazing job at the club and are well respected nationally.
“I’m determined to take on more responsibility and I’m hungry to help lead this club to promotion.”
Bamfield said: “I’m so pleased to secure Ethan’s commitment to Fury.
“We are clearly building something big at this club with lofty ambitions.
“I feel that Ethan will be a key piece in helping us to achieve our goals.
“He fits the culture I want for our team with exciting scoring ability but a focus on the defensive end,” added Bamfield, who thanked Aven Ltd and Giedrius Venckunas for their continued support and significant investment.
