Manchester Mystics’ star guard Georgia Jones has been confirmed as the club’s first addition to their 2018-19 roster, with the Great Britain playmaker intrigued by what lies ahead.
Preparing to embark on what will be her third campaign with her hometown side, having also played previously at Leicester Riders, Jones is looking forward to seeing how things will pan out once the curtain is raised.
She explained: “I think we struggled towards the end of last season, mainly due to lack of depth and we were disappointed not to finish in the Top 4.
“But, we have a core group returning which will hopefully allow us to build on what we learned and that will help us to improve this year.
“With a lot of new faces being announced and a few veterans moving to new clubs, it is hard to say what to expect from each team in the WBBL this year,” added Jones, who made the 2017-18 Molten WBBL All-British Team of the Year.
“But, I am sure it will make for an exciting year and I am just grateful for another season and ready to get started.!”
Jones will also be looking forward to potentially helping Great Britain to punch a ticket to the FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2019 in this autumn’s final qualification window during November.
Further player announcements will be made by Mystics in coming days.
