Jones thrilled with Roscoe return

Manchester Mystics have confirmed Samantha Roscoe is back on board for the forthcoming 2018-19 WBBL campaign and that is music to the ears of the club’s Head Coach, Jeff Jones.

Having already secured the services of another two leaders in Georgia Jones and Rheanne Bailey earlier this week, the play-caller is thrilled to have another cornerstone of last year’s side on his roster.

He stated: “We are really pleased to have Sam returning and I am sure the experience she gained last season will help her be even better prepared for this season.¬†With her studying for a masters at MMU, it is a great opportunity for her.

“Sam joining Rheanne and Georgia, along with the other core players from last year, gives us a good base to build from. We will be announcing a few more players in the coming days, which hopefully gives us a bit more depth then last year,” added Jones.

Roscoe averaged almost 10 points and 6 boards per game in the WBBL Championship last season and has recently completed a spell in Australia with Lakeside Lightning.
