Essex Rebels have today welcomed back former club captain Ellie Shaxon.

Shaxon signed for the Rebels for the 2019-20 season where she helped guide the team to an improved eighth place finish before signing to play in Italy for the 2020-21 season.

She helped her team to one of their best ever finishes and its first ever finals appearance along with a club promotion to the First Division.

“Ellie returns to the Rebels for her second season and it is great to have her back after a year away,” said Tom Sadler, Head of Basketball Performance.

“Ellie has a key role to play this season in supporting our front court players.”
