BASKETBALL: King’s Lynn Fury have continued their team building ahead of the National League season.

The Lynnsport-based team have snapped up 6’ 5 Lithuanian forward Arentas Jasiunas.

Jasiunas has lived in Lynn for the past five years and represented Fury in local and area competition.

He so impressed last season that head coach James Bamfield made his signing a high priority.

Bamfield said: “Arentas made an major impact with the development sides with his aggressive style of play.

“He often led the young squad in scoring and rebounding while taking on the challenge to guard many of the opposition’s top scorers. This mentality will bode well as he steps up into NBL competition. It’s great to be able to give local guys a shot at competing on a national stage.”

Jasiunas is looking forward to playing at the higher level and said: “I like our team and this club because the players are like brothers.”
